Alister McGrath is a leading British theologian with a background in biochemistry. He believes Christianity is not merely a ‘useful fiction’ but grounded in evidence and the ultimate truth of God.

US biologist Bret Weinstein is one of the leading voices in the ‘Intellectual Dark Web’. As an atheist he says religion is a product of evolution, but it has been good for humanity. As such it is ‘metaphorically true but literally false’.
