spiritual arm wrestling

Enjoying this as positive news, but reminded that debates are just that - debates.
The former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, defeated prominent atheist professor, Richard Dawkins, in a debate at the University of Cambridge in England on Thursday night, as a vote taken at the conclusion of the debate ruled that religion does have a place in the 21st century.

The debate motion that "religion has no place in the 21st Century" was well-defeated at the event held in front of an audience of about 800 people, mostly students, at the Cambridge Union Society's chambers, according to the U.K.'s Independent newspaper. Dawkins lost the debate by 324 votes to 136, as he failed to convince the house that religion has no place.

As a college prof of mind once shared, "A person convinced against his will is of the same opinion still."

Perhaps there is still room for real conversation... and real transformation.
"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:12)
