This Scientist Says ‘Serious Atheist Thinkers’ Are Re-Thinking Strict Naturalism That Excludes God

It is a commonplace belief among prominent contemporary atheist thinkers that the universe is strictly materialist, with nothing remotely non-material, or “spiritual,” as has been commonly understood for thousands of years.

But John Lennox, the British mathematician, philosopher of science, and Oxford professor emeritus, detects some interesting trends among the atheists he often debates in public forums.

“I think we’re getting to the state now where serious atheist thinkers are beginning to re-examine the kind of naturalism that reduces everything to physics and chemistry,” Lennox said during a recent discussion with Talk Radio’s Dave Rubin on The Big Conversation.

Check out this excerpt in which Lennox explains and includes examples:

    Nothing like wishful thinking. Now, there is a problem since Christians themselves are re-examining their religion and inventing new “interpretations” of it since it’s silly to believe in a god that made two people out of dirt and made every animal like it looks like today. They are leaving their magical tales behind and accepting the evidence of evolutionary theory. They just add a god to “start” it. Now which baseless claim shall we accept: young earth creationists, old earth creationists, evolutionary theists? Why can’t they even convince each other?
