An agnostic atheist stated he would believe in god.
I wonder what would that ‘god’ look like?
What would that ‘god’ tell us?
What would that ‘religion’ behave like?
Would ‘science’ accept or denounce the scientist? Would ‘science’ accept or denounce this ‘god?’
This opens up a new realm of dialogue?
Is there a common ground between science and religion? Is that common ground ‘new’ or is it an older common ground that is now being recognized again?
Can that acceptance be extended to Jesus Christ? Would all religions be considered equal. Or, would the acceptance only extend to certain religions? How would the contradictory truth claims of some religions be handled?
Muslims claim Jesus is not God; Christians believe Jesus is God; and Mormons believe Jesus is only one of many ‘gods.’ Would we resolve this? Or, would we just accept all religions?
I am intrigued.
Would evolution still be the dominant ‘scientific’ standard, or would other dogmas become the new standards?
what do you think?

It’s a pity that Richard didn’t get to ask the interviewer some questions!
Watch it to see some responses to the toughest questions that you’d ever be asked by believers. It covers a lot of ground and is definitely worth watching, even if you’re already familiar with Richard’s arguments against…
