Richard Dawkins & John Lennox discuss The God Delusion

I thought both participants put their views accross clearly, and the discussion was relatively congenial - but giving Dawkins the last word doesn't make up for the lack of planned two way interaction between Lennox and Dawkins - so well done to Dawkins for resting some time for replying to Lennox's criticisms.

I was particularly glad to see Lennox and Dawkins highlighting areas of agreement between them - e.g. that 'faith' defined as 'blind faith' uninterested in evidence is a bad thing; and that NOMA is wrong (i.e. that science and religion do at least overlap, and are not about wholly different and therefore non-interacting subjects).
