Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
The Archbishop of Canterbury is obviously a big fan of this blog, having chosen to respond directly to this post in today’s Telegraph. There’s no possible other explanation.
It reads very much like he had difficulty writing this column – and certainly he should have. It works, though, in it’s own little way. It’s not the best column ever written, but it makes its point, and it works. Though, of course, it would be difficult for the Archbishop to write about God and it not work.
Just one other comment – I don’t know whether he wrote the headline, but I really would have expected ‘us’ to ‘question’, rather than ‘doubt’, God’s existence.
