Fairytale Life: Is God a delusion? Peter Dray

2 years ago


delusion (noun): ‘An idiosyncratic belief or impression maintained despite being contradicted by reality or rational argument, typically as a symptom of mental disorder’

Dawkins would have you believe that belief in God subverts science and knowledge, breeds ignorance, foments bigotry, and abuses children. All for a delusion. Is God a benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker?

If Science hasn’t replaced God, at least not for David Wilkinson and many others then where does it stand when looked at historically? Does it really subvert knowledge?

The Christian faith rises and falls on the resurrection of Jesus - but how can we be sure that this occurred? Wasn’t it faked? A big conspiracy? Today (Monday 9th) we’ll be looking at these questions. In addition the speaker (Pete Day) will explore the reliability of the bible and whether it can be trusted in a merely historical sense.
