Several months ago, Time featured a debate between Richard Dawkins and Francis Collins on the subject of God.
This week, Newsweek does something similar. Sam Harris visited the offices of Pastor Rick Warren and moderator Jon Meacham was there to watch it unfold.
I was going to list some excerpts, but really, the whole thing is worth reading.
I am kind of disappointed that Rick Warren resorts to age-old arguments. I keep wondering how many times atheists have to address these issues before people understand them. For example: Where do atheists get their morals from? Atheists like Stalin were responsible for the worst crimes in the world. Warren even closes by using the argument of Pascal’s Wager.
I had thought Warren was above those petty arguments. Atheists certainly have easy responses to them…
