Dawkins and Lennox: who is petty?

Great debate between Richard Dawkins and John Lennox.

Of course Dawkins has to begin with comments that have nothing to do with debating, like:
"That God couldn't think of a better way to rid the world of sin than to come to this little speck of cosmic dust, have himself tortured and executed so that he could forgive himself. That is profoundly unscientific. It is petty and small minded and it doesn't do justice to the grandeur of the universe."

Petty and small minded? Nothing like a personal attack to make your point.

Then Dawkins gets a bit tongue tied when Lennox states that historians, even non believer historians, agree that the evidence for Jesus and the empty tomb are very strong.

Dawkins says:
"I don't care if historians believe in Jesus because it's petty."

That gave me a wonderul chuckle. Thanks Richard.

All in all, a good debate.
