Jonathan Miller professes to be an atheist but he seems almost desperate in his efforts to convince. He doth protest too much I think.

This was previously shown on BBC4 but I watched it again as it poses that age old question.
Did God create man or did man invent God. In short, does God exist?
As an agnostic I wait to be convinced.

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
Epicurus - 2,300 years ago

If you talk to God, you're praying. If God talks back, it's schizophrenia.
Phil Spector Esquire 9/1999

2 people in every 1 is a schizophrenic.
