Fellow bloggers Martha and Kim and I had the privilege to hear Alister McGrath speak on Dawkins' God Delusion last night. It was wonderful. If you're not familiar with him, McGrath is an Oxford professor of theology, and head of the Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics at Wycliffe Hall.
In these situations, I feel a bit like a bear of very little brain. (I had the chance to attend summer school at Wycliffe a couple years ago -- I highly recommend it -- Dr. McGrath would speak for an hour and I felt like my brain just couldn't hold any more.)
There were two main points that stood out to me, though. They're related:
1 - Atheism is a faith (I know this is being debated under the post about the Lennox/Dawkins debate)
2 - Science is agnostic -- meaning, science cannot one way or the other answer the question of God, or for that matter, any questions of meaning (why are we here, etc.).
