McGrath er kominn

Gušfręšingurinn Alister McGrath er ein helsta vonarstarna kristinna og svar žeirra viš Richard Dawkins. McGrath flytur fyrirlestur ķ Hįskólanum ķ dag og ég ętla aš męta.

Hér er óklippt vištal sem Dawkins tók viš McGrath fyrir myndina Root of all evil? sem af einhverjum įstęšum hefur aldrei veriš sżnd hér į landi. Vištališ var ekki notaš ķ myndinni og ef žiš horfiš į žaš til enda skiliš žiš af hverju. Žiš skiljiš lķka vonandi af hverju trśleysingjar eiga erfitt meš aš taka McGrath alvarlega. McGrath er sérfręšingur ķ gręnsįpu og aš koma sér undan žvķ aš svara spurningum. Žaš veršur fróšlegt aš heyra ķ honum ķ dag.

Žessa dagana kemur bók McGrath Dawkins delusions śt ķ ķslenskri žżšingu en bókin er svar viš bók Dawkins, The God delusion. Ég hef ekki enn lesiš bók McGrath en žessi nįungi gerši žaš og fann dįlķtiš margar villur.

WAITER: And what might you be having this evening?

MCGRATH: Yes. Well, it’s important to distinguish between the various choices that a dinner menu offers. On the one hand, yes, there is a Chicken Cordon Bleu, and throughout the years it has been very satisfying to those who would choose to partake of it, as it is their right and wont to do so. I myself have been partial to such dishes, and I believe you would be too, were you to be one who enjoys partaking of such dishes as one is partial to.

But again, I caution that I mean to make no special claims to knowledge as to the superiority of one dish over the other, and so I must also be willing to consider, as St. Augustine frequently did, the Vegetable Korma, with its variable array of rich and exotic spices, the aromatic delights of different vegetable textures, not to mention its ethnic appeal, which is truly cross-cultural in its glory. To choose either would be a disservice, and again, it is not a question of which gastronomic delicacy is most satisfying to me, but rather, a reminder of the cause we have to celebrate, that this restaurant has chosen to offer to us so many choices, which I consider with delight and an open heart.
