David chatted with Atheist Ireland chairperson Michael Nugent on RTE Radio 1′s God Slot on Friday 8 February 2013. We hope we get further opportunity for dialogue with Michael and Atheist Ireland.
“Michael and I had a terrific discussion for some time afterwards on reasons for and against belief in God and particularly on the nature of morality. There’s a common stereotype of new atheists as being unwilling to consider rational criticism of their views – Michael doesn’t fit the bill. Obviously he has his own beliefs, but he was very willing to consider theistic arguments thoughtfully and rationally. To my mind, it was everything a good, open and fair discussion of these issues should be.” – David
