15Feb Richard Dawkins Survey on Religion – links

The Richard Dawkins survey of Religion in UK tries to assess the real meaning of answers to the religion question in the 2011 Census. You can check out his account of it at http://richarddawkinsfoundation.org/.

His interview on BBC Radio yesterday morning with Rev Giles Fraser is at http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9696000/9696135.stm. Oddly, when he gets into difficulty, his authomatic reaction is to say “O God!”

Some interesting comments on the matter, and on Dawkins’ interpretation of the survey results, are at:

    “Oddly, when he gets into difficulty, his authomatic reaction is to say “O God!””

    Why are so many people making a big deal about this, as if they don’t realise it’s simply a turn of phrase familiar to us all? Dawkins has spoken at lengths about cultural Christianity, and even deems himself a cultural Christian.
