Description ….

The God Delusion, the world-wide best-seller by atheist and scientist Professor Richard Dawkins, is an all-out assault on religion in general and Christianity in particular.

One year after its publication, fellow Oxford Professor John Lennox met Dawkins in Birmingham, Alabama to put his assertions to the test in a clash between two of the greatest minds in the science-religion debate.

As the BBC put it, “Darwin’s Rottweiler is about to get a run for his money…”

… The debate pits Dawkins against his Oxford University colleague Professor John Lennox, who is both a scientist and a Christian theologian.

In this, his first visit to the so-called “Bible Belt,” Dawkins debates his views as expressed in The God Delusion and their validity over and against the Christian faith.

The event garnered national and international attention from The Times of London, NPR, BBC, Christian Post, and Fox News Network. Spectator Magazine called the debate “remarkable,” and still others have called it historic.

The God Delusion Debate was filmed before a sold-out crowd at the University of Alabama-Birmingham’s Alys Stephens Center and broadcast live to a global audience of over one million.

Dawkins, voted by Europe’s Prospect Magazine as one of the world’s most important intellectuals, is regarded by many as the spokesman for the “New Atheism.”

BBC has labeled him “Darwin’s Rottweiler.”

He has written numerous best-sellers, including his recent book, The God Delusion.

According to Dawkins, one can deduce atheism from scientific study; indeed, he argues that it is the only viable choice.

Lennox, a popular Christian apologist and scientist, travels widely speaking on the interface between science and religion.

Like Dawkins, he has dedicated his career to science, but he has arrived at very different conclusions.

“It is the very nature of science that leads me to belief in God,” he says.

Lennox possesses doctorates from Oxford, Cambridge, and the University of Wales.

He has written a response to the notion that Science has exposed the Bible as obscurantist in a book titled God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?
