Atheist Richard Dawkins: ‘I Am a Secular Christian’

Richard Dawkins is known far and wide as an atheist. Now the popular scientist is admitting he's actually not an atheist at all—he's a secular Christian.

Dawkins recently spoke at the Hay Festival. There, the evolutionary biologist was presenting the first volume of his memoirs, An Appetite for Wonder, according to The Telegraph.

Dawkins isn't ready to embrace the supernatural, charismatic aspects of Christianity but expressed his affinity for religious ceremony during his talk.

Well, it wouldn't matter what Dawkins calls himself, much more is the Christian that is a practical atheist,
Jacob W. Kapp wrote:
Practical atheism.

...It has nothing at all to do with belief. Indeed it accepts the affirmations of theism. It has reference wholly to the mode of life. It is to live as though there was no God.

It takes the form often of complete indifference to the claims of the Divine Being or again of outbroken and defiant wickedness (Ps 14:1). That this form of atheism is widely prevalent is well known. It is accompanied in many cases with some form of unbelief or prejudice or false opinion of the church or Christianity. Dogmatic atheism is no longer a menace or even a hindrance to the progress of Christianity, but practical atheism is widespread in its influence and a dangerous element in our modern life (compare Isa 31:1; Jer 2:13,17,18; 18:13-15). Whatever the form, whether it be that of religious agnosticism, denying that we can know that God exists, or critical atheism, denying that the evidence to prove His existence is sufficient, or dogmatic, or practical atheism, it is always a system of negation and as such tears down and destroys....
[/QOUTE] from the ISBE on "Atheism."

I have watched Dawkins for a while. in a recent interview with Ben Stein he has confessed that there must be intellegence in the creation account, he is moving away from random processes. i have watched this dynamic unfolding in him for quite some time.

I think this is what he is refering to in a tongue and cheek way. blasphemous? yes but........ i hope you are aware of this and are praying for his eyes opening

Jesus warned, Tale heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Many will also say they are 'of Christ', and are not Christians at all; Paul also warned us of this.

A secular Christian?

A worldly Christian?

Isn't that what Liberals are but they don't know it?

Oxymoron or just plain moron?

Dawkins is clever and insightful. He is joining all those "Christians" who although they profess Christianity, Christ has absolutely no reality in their daily life. They are essentially practical atheists. Dawkins is merely exposing such nonsense.

I think child of wrath is a better description.

Are you stupid in any OTHER area you want to let us know about, or was that it?
