Discussing Delusions: Dawkins and the Science/Faith Debate

Saturday 23rd of November, 7:30-9:30pm.

Discussing Delusions: Dawkins and the Science/Faith Debate

Presented by David Robertson, author, minister, broadcaster.

When Richard Dawkins published ‘The God Delusion’, David Robertson wrote an open letter to Richard Dawkins. It found its way onto Dawkins’s website, where it generated the largest response of any posting up to that time. Since then it has been the source of continued discussion, and prompted David to write the book “The Dawkins Letters” in 2007, drawing on his experience as a debater, pastor and author. Looking back, more than a decade after Dawkins book, David will review its impact on the science/faith debate today.

David Robertson is a writer, minister, and broadcaster. He is the director of Third Space, a project of the City Bible Forum in Australia, having been the minister of St Peters Free Church in Dundee Scotland for 27 years. He is the author of “The Dawkins Letters: Challenging Atheist Myths”, “Magnificent Obsession: Why Jesus Is Great”, and “Engaging with Atheists”. He is married to Annabel and has three children.
