Big mistake?

Richard Dawkins has been at it again. This time, in a Guardian blog article, he uses controversy on the age of the Earth and on the evolution theory’s compliance to the second law of thermodynamics as a reference to point out, how large the supposed error of the evolutionists is, from a creationist perspective. But, Mr. Dawkins, what’s really new about that? There’s no need to resort to lengthy explanations about isotope age measurements and entropy. We always knew it: One side postulates the existence of an almighty God, the creator of the universe, who, on top of it all, is interested in our lives and will one day judge us based on how we were living. The other side claims such a being doesn’t exist. One of the two is obviously wrong. How could there possibly be a greater discrepancy between the two?
In fact, thinking about it, in light of the magnitude of difference created by believing (or not believing) in the existence of God, Dawkin’s magnitude of error of merely factor 460,000 pales and turns out to be completely trivial.
But, what if you’re the one who is wrong, and there is actually a God? Think about the magnitude of difference that really makes — not just in theory, but for you, personally.
