Richard Dawkins and John Lennox Conversation MP3 Audio

This is a recorded conversation between Richard Dawkins and John Lennox. This fascinating discussion covers the topics of faith, miracles, evidence, and Christian belief.

Found at Dawkins' website.

Full MP3 Audio here.

As a Christian evolutionist I was happy to hear Lennox apparently confess belief in theistic evolution around 54 minutes in. He "think[s] there may be several points in the history of, um, the universe where God did something special". I'd allow more frequent miracles than at "several points in the history of the universe"! This may explain why he blusters and waffles so much when making his Intelligent Design arguments.

Just checked the link: it's "no longer available".

In his book "Seven Days that Divide the World" (here) Lennox describes his view in more detail than in this discussion. He does not hold to theistic evolution, however. Instead, his view is that each of the "days" spelled out in Genesis describe instances of creating, but they do not represent 24-hour, sequential days.

In his other works, such as "God's Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?" (here) he also does not hold to an evolutionary view, it seems.

Also, I updated the link, so the audio is now available.
