The God Delusion debate II

The end of The God Delusion Debate, between Richard Dawkins and John Lennox is fascinating. You can see the whole debate online here. In his closing statement John Lennox discusses our innate desire for justice and quotes from Acts 17 (Paul's address at the Areopagus in Athens)

God commands all people everywhere to repent, 31because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead."

Richard Dawkins response to Lennox is similar to some of the Athenian's response to Paul:

32Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked.
