Did any of you hear Richard Dawkins on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show tonight?
It was interesting to hear Hewitt, the lawyer, pick Dawkins apart on the level of his reasoning and evidence.
In any event, I found Dawkin’s argument against God and especially against Christian faith in God to be a little odd.
Dawkins holds that the God people claim to believe in would have to be a terribly complicated being.
This certainly isn’t the way the best thinkers of the West and certainly in the Christian tradition see God.
Most people who think about God hold that God is perfectly SIMPLE.
God knows things perfectly by perfect knowledge of Himself. And His knowledge and being are identical.
So, doesn’t Dawkins set up a sort of straw man by saying that God is complicated? Isn’t he arguing against a position thoughtful Christians, at least, don’t hold?
