There is probably no Dawkins

From Stand to Reason blog:

I’ve written about Dawkins, author of The God Delusion, before (e.g. here here and here).

  1. Hilarious! I’ve seen similar signs aimed at God (“Don’t worry, there’s no God and you aren’t going to hell. Now you can enjoy life.” or something almost like that), but to have the same sort of line turned around at Dawkins is hilarious, probably because it’s so nonsensical.

    Anyone know anything about the Premier group/movement/series/whatever?

  2. “There is probably no Dawkins”

    Which demonstrates they don’t know what the word ‘probably’ or the word ‘no’ means.

  3. NotAScientist:

    The statement is a play on the atheist “There’s probably no God. So stop worrying and enjoy your life” campaign on London busses back in 2009.

    So, I guess you would agree that the British atheists “don’t know what the word ‘probably’ or the word ‘no’ means” as well.

    Not at all.

    I object to the usage of the words when dealing with an actual person we can see and speak to. Not your deity.

  5. It would be more probable that there is no Dawkins, than that there is no God. His life is but a fleeting moment, while God is, has been and always will be.

    Well did the psalmist say: “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God… The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside…” Psalm 14

    Mr. Dawkins will eventually learn the barrenness of his “superior logic”.

  6. WebMonk, Premier Christian media is a non profit media organisation. Its main output is Premier Christian Radio but it also has Premier.tv.
    As far as I know it is non-denominational and rarely takes a stance of its own on controversial issues so I think the “probably no Dawkins” poster is probably ;-) meant in jest to draw attention to the event advertised. An instance of irony designed to make one think rather than merely pass by.
    It seems to have worked.
