Preaching backwards

I was very impressed with Radio 2’s ‘Pause for Thought’ this morning. The preacher managed to combine the Dawkins/Kay non-story and last week’s highly dubious global-warming denying C4 documentary into a tirade against the pitfalls of absolute certainty. A standard misrepresentation, but he then compared this to the wonder of his faith, which comes from experience and is therefore better. It was astonishing.
