I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how 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 very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Of course this makes us doubt God’s existence (Telegraph)

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.
