Renowned atheist and best-selling author Richard Dawkins, who was in town yesterday to attend the wedding of a distant cousin, was seen entering a local big tent revival meeting, undoubtedly lured in by the singing of the Doxology.
“I figured I’d just go in and check it out,” said Dawkins. “Who knows, maybe I could even get into a furious debate about theism with somebody.”
Whatever his intentions, by half-way through the service, Dawkins was in tears.
“I see now that my Flying Spaghetti Monster analogy just doesn’t hold any water whatsoever,” said Dawkins. “I hearby renounce everything I ever wrote in The God Delusion.”
Dawkins, a new man, was seen partaking in faspa with the crowd after the service.
“The Catholics couldn’t reach me. The Anglicans couldn’t convince me. The Baptists and Methodists and more than a few JWs tried,” said Dawkins. “Who knew that a couple Mennonites in a tent in southern Manitoba would finally break through and win me over.”
