Betting on the Existence of God

The British are betting on the existence of God. Odds for the existence of God have dropped from 33-1 to a mere 4-1.

The Reason for the drop? Atheist Richard Dawkins, the author of The God Delusion.

Richard Dawkins is now proclaiming that “probably” there is no God.

According to Ruth Gledhill, the Religion Correspondent for the Times Online, “The ‘probably’ confirms belief that Dawkins’ atheism contains a kernel of doubt that could in itself be proof of the existence of God.”

Atheist Richard Dawkins seems to be moving toward God. It is possible that one of these days Richard Dawkins may become the new Antony Flew.

To read about Antony Flew’s journey from atheism to theism read the following posts:

1. Antony Flew: There Is A God

2. From Atheism to Theism: A Journey Toward God

3. The Origin of Life and the Existence of God

4. The Big Bang Theory and the Existence of God

5. The Laws of Nature and the Existence of God

6. There Is a God: A Postscript

7. Betting on the Existence of God

8. An Answer from the Grave

9. An Interview with Antony Flew

10. The Death of Antony Flew

I wonder what would take to drop the odds from 4-1 to 2-1.

    >Claude,On my reading, Dawkins’ argument against the existence of God or gods has always been a probability argument. I don’t think his position has changed in this regard. As a scientist, he is open to evidence that would change his estimate that there is a diminishingly low probability of there being a god, he just hasn’t seen any such evidence as yet.
