musings about the emerging church, mission and contemporary culture...

God is at large, intimately involved in his world in ways that the church is maybe just waking up to!

dawkins' rottweilers...

Friday, April 13, 2007

According to 'this Guardian report', Dawkins and his followers are now organising themselves into a movement of sorts. I always thought that movements or organisations gathered around a central belief system roughly equates to 'religion', but I guess that Dawkins would argue otherwise! After reading the article and the posted comments, I felt compelled to add...

"Dawkins provides us with the ultimate meta-narrative! So is this action a last gasp attempt of modernity to hang on to its credentials in a culture that has largely left it behind? I have a feeling that, in the postmodern age, Dawkins and his followers will face (and are facing) the same marginalisation as institutional (conservative) religion - that will make for interesting bed-fellows!!"

I'm just waiting now to see if this provokes any response!!
