I do not yet have time to blog in this with my own comments, but be sure to read RG’s post about this debate. Interesting and, as always, very humorous. Back after many morning meetings…
Ruth Gledhill – Times Online – WBLG: ‘We’d be better off without religion’
March 28, 2007
‘We’d be better off without religion’
Richard Dawkins was among the speakers at the debate sponsored by The Times and organised by Intelligence Squared at Westminster Central Hall in London last night. More details on The Times Faith Page, and you can also listen to the podcast. There is also an entertaining blog just up, summarising this post and some of the comments.
It was apparently sold out, even though I counted more than100 empty seats behind my front row on the side where I sat in glorious near-solitude, with one person to the right of me and none behind or to the left. This was only after I managed to squeeze past the slightly scary but fortunately very thin security guard barring the door and telling me there were no empty seats.
