Alert Call for Brighton Atheists.

The Dawkins Letters by David Robertson

7:00 pm, Tue 30th June 2009

Calvary Evangelical Church in association with Borders Bookstore, Brighton will be hosting a debate at the Jubilee Library, Brighton led by David Robertson, columnist, author, debater and pastor of St. Peter’s Free Church of Scotland in Dundee. Robertson first came to prominence in 2007 when his book ‘The Dawkins Letters’ was first published as a Christian response to renowned Oxford scientist and atheist, Richard Dawkins, following his controversial polemic ‘The God Delusion’. ‘The Dawkins Letters’comprises a series of letters that explain a credible basis for faith counteracting the ‘atheist myths’ that so much popular discussion is based upon. Christians, and non-Christians, need to know where Dawkins is weak – and also how to explain things better – and David Robertson’s book does just that. David Robertson will tackle the question of whether it is really delusional to believe in God or more delusional to think that we can get along without him. You are invited to come and listen, debate and be prepared to have your thinking changed!


  1. I invited David Robertson to debate the resurrection in an online written debate.

    He declined.

  2. That's surprising, considering how much he found to say on RichardDawkins.com.

    Are you coming to the debate?

  3. Brighton is a bit far.

    All that time on Richard Dawkins.net and Robertson produced not argument for any miracles, despite the mockery of people asking him to put up or shut up.

  4. So was he paid a fee for running the session?

  5. I don't know for sure epeeist but I should imagine not. The usual thing where a a particular book is being promoted locally is for the bookstore to cover costs. On the other hand the library rooms are rather expensive. I wonder if the Calvary church contributed?

  6. I always read this type of debate is interesante.Lastima I could not see this. Buscare the impact to see if I find out that I speak.
