Re: Faith and Beliefs: Whom should we interview?

I think Richard Dawkins would be an excellent candidate. However, because of his highly polarized viewpoint, I think it may benefit everyone to have someone on the opposite side as well. Perhaps, set as a debate with questions for each side by the Bigthink community. What questions would you guys like to ask each side of the debate?


Example:

Professor Dawkins: Life is too elegant to have evolved. What do you think?

Other side: Atheists claim that you can not prove the existence of a God by saying there is no way to disprove His existence.

This way, the community can contribute to the interview. The faith and beliefs section of Bigthink has been having a heated debate for last couple days and it would be great to have expert opinions on what we have been talking about. Thanks for listening.
