It was a privilege to help organize Dr. John Lennox’s visit to Toronto. A highlight was an interview he had with Conrad Black, Canadian media mogul and personality. The interview was held in Black’s residence. The two “seventy-somethings” hit it off. Conrad thoroughly enjoyed the conversation. At some point the interview will air on Zoomer television. After their meeting, Conrad Black wrote an article for The National Post entitled: “The shabby, shallow world of the militant atheist.” In conclusion Black writes:
It is in the nature of the world that we don’t know, but the decline of Christianity is much more of a delusion than God is and even more wishful, and the serious defenders of a divine intelligence such as the delightful John Lennox almost always win the argument, as he did with Dawkins and the rest. There is a long way between these two poles, and agnosticism is a much more rigorous position than the belligerence of the proselytizing atheists, but that is not a stance that stirs serious people to militancy. They have been weighed in the balance and found wanting.
