Product Description

Fixed Point Foundation hosts a second discussion between Professor Richard Dawkins and Professor John Lennox this time in the UK at the Oxford Museum of Natural History. An enthralling topic for scientists, skeptics, and Christians for nearly 150 years, the answer to this question has implications that reverberate through-out public and private live, from government policy and medical ethics to individual choices made every day. Two scientists return to the Oxford Museum of Natural History, the famed site of the 1860 Evolution debate between Huxley and Wilberforce. Discussing an issue the BBC calls 'as fierce as ever,' the two go head to head in a remarkable match of intellect.

So often these sorts of presentations descend into slightly ridiculous scenarios where a highly polished academic athiest is pitched against someone with religious convictions but totally unequipped to debate the issues at the same level. Athiests then use this as further evidence that people with religious beliefs are in the main, poorly-educated weak-minded sheep. However, I'm pleased to say this is certainly not the case here.
The two men debate on practical issues of whether our growing understanding of the world and universe around us through scientific advances undermines the case for a Creator God and the need for a Messiah. The material being debated gets slightly heavyweight here and there, but on the whole I would say it remains understandable to a layperson.
I think most people watching this will have pre-determined views one way or the other, but hopefully it will provoke thought and further discussion. There is no real bias either way and both protagonists put forward decent, thoughtful, intelligent answers.
The interesting things that came out of it for me were: 1. Neither side of the debate has all the answers. 2. The debate is actually more evenly balanced than the liberal media would like you to believe. 3. Both camps should embrace and not be scared of rigorous debate and probing difficult questions.
Please keep these type of debates coming. It can only be a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent debate 23 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Both speakers take their perspectives. Both are scientists but different in their beliefs and both try to bring science to justify their beliefs. Prof Dawkins used to say science can explain everything but I see him moderating his views in this where he acknowledges that there is much that needs to be done. Prof. Lennox try to put everything in the context of creation and a super designer and the fact we are only discovering what is already there. Just like we are designers of the products, services, methods we use there is a super designer of who and what we are. Since religions are in decline and Atheism is in the ascendance the stand taken by Prof. Lennox is very courageous. The setting is magnificiant and historical, evidence of human creativity that science has yet to prove and evidence of science that can explain the construction of it.

The content is balanced and clearly presented. Although covering deep subjects it was easy to listen to. I will listen to the DVD again.

2.0 out of 5 stars It no way lives up to the claims made for it 28 Oct 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Firstly let me point out that this DVD is produced and published by The Fixed Point Foundation, which clearly states that it is committed to publicly defending Christianity through education [and] events and this is evident in the whole approach to the debate. The debate is presented by and "chaired" by Larry Taunton who is founder and executive director of the foundation, and the director is Michael Lennox, whilst Carson Lennox is another member of the production team - in charge of Location Production Services. A pure coincidence or keeping it in the family?

Dawkins has commented regarding an earlier debate organised by the same organisation, the "God Delusion" debate in Birmingham, Alabama, prompted by his book of the same name, that the format was rather strange, in that it ensured that Lennox got the last word on every single issue. The fact that the foundation produced this debate is very evident in the framing of the debate to constantly require Dawkins to be defending his position, whilst Lennox is never once required to do so.

My most important objection to this DVD is that it failed to deliver what it promised. Based on the description given, I was looking forward to hearing a well-constructed scientific argument that challenged the science put forward by Dawkins. Whether it was more convincing than Dawkins' arguments or not would remain to be seen, but I had expected, from the description, that it would at least challenge me to think it through very carefully. Furthermore, I really wanted to present this to my teenage children, who have already heard Dawkins' arguments, so that they would have a balanced set of arguments on both sides of the debate, in order for them to reach their own conclusions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very erudite 26 Dec 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Enlightening. Amazing to watch these 2 professors talk about God and religion. I bought this for one of my nephews who is a priest in Nice, France and the debate only strengthened his and my belief.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating! 1 Dec 2009
By Moonshine. VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Mr Lennox uses a different approach to the first dvd filmed in USA.
There he was the jovial opponent. It is produced by a Christian organisation but Mr Dawkins more than holds his own in both dvd's.
Here Mr Lennox is more serious and introspective about how their world views differ. He does not produce any scientific evidence about God, but as usual only his opinions.
For Dawkins life on earth is a brief, but awe-inspiring shooting star. This short life is all we have, so make the most of it.
For Lennox life on earth is the way of the cross and then eternal sunshine- after you are dead. He concentrates on, 'the Logos.' God said the word and then there was light. The only word God seems to have said is 'Goodbye.'
I wonder who's right?
