Killers frontman recalls TV debate with Richard Dawkins
The Killers‘ frontman Brandon Flowers has recalled a debate he had with evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins on Swedish TV recently, stating his belief that science will never prove that God doesn’t exist.
Both Flowers and Dawkins were guests on a recent edition of Skalvan, a Swedish chat show. The topic of discussion between Dawkins and Flowers, who is a Mormon, soon turned to religion. Scroll down the page to see video footage from the recent broadcast.
Speaking to The Guardian about his appearance on the show, Flowers appeared to suggest that he was given a bad edit by Swedish producers, saying: “I gave some decent answers that were edited out. So, the world is against the Christian man.”
Flowers then went on to give his opinion on Dawkins, saying:
For him he sees the beauty in science proving something and finding out origins of things. And that’s enough for him. Nothing that science will ever find will disprove that God had a hand in it, for me. So it’s a useless debate. And nothing that has been found has changed the gospel that I believe in.
Flowers continued: “He generalises things about my church and kind of drags it through the dirt a lot. He’s this smart guy and getting his information from the wrong places. That was really what frustrated me.”
