I have just read somewhere that Dr Dawkins of this University has announced that he has a 'nostalgia' for Christianity and that he is a 'secular Christian'.
One could write reams on each word of that. I will merely share my own suspicion: that Our Richard is changing his public image in a bid to become a National Treasure and one of the Great and the Good ... the sort of bloke/blokess who is given a knighthood/damehood, if not the Order of Merit. God bless the silly opinionated old fool.
Not long ago, some gang of secularists wrote to the Press about one of their standard preoccupations ... I forget which one ... who cares ... but without Dawkins' signature. Interesting. Either he didn't sign because he is softening his image; or they didn't ask him to because they wanted to be taken seriously.
Either way, diverting, don't you think?
