Christians should be grateful to Richard Dawkins

Let's face it, it is easier for most of us to hold a clear but inaccurate image of what we think God is, rather than to live with the discomfort of not being able to pin God down precisely. Many a mystic has said that all descriptions of God are false because they are so inadequate, but that is not a comfortable place to be in. We prefer a domesticated God that our comprehension can contain. Richard Dawkins in effect is pointing at a load of golden calves that we have fashioned over the millennia, and saying, "what a load of rubbish" - Richard Skinner
