Submission + - Richard Dawkins: Not Sure There Is No God (telegraph.co.uk)

smitty777 writes: Richard Dawkins, arguably the worlds most known atheist, admitted in a debate with the Archbishop of Canterbury that he was uncertain that a God does not exist. In this video, he admits to being an agnostic rather than an atheist. FTA: There was surprise when Prof Dawkins acknowledged that he was less than 100 per cent certain of his conviction that there is no creator. The philosopher Sir Anthony Kenny, who chaired the discussion, interjected: “Why don’t you call yourself an agnostic?” Prof Dawkins answered that he did. An incredulous Sir Anthony replied: “You are described as the world’s most famous atheist.”"

Dawkins has also been in the (virtual) papers lately for reports on how his family had amassed their fortunes in the 1700s.
