In the midst of an article that can never quite bring itself to discuss whether the arguments of the 'New Atheists' are actually valid or not, Bunters says something amusing.

Yet The God Delusion is not a book of persuasion, but of provocation - it may have sold in the thousands but has it won any souls? Anyone who has experienced such a conversion, please email me (with proof).

Any ideas on what would be acceptable as proof? One photo of you outside a church and another holding The God Delusion with a thumbs up? Maybe she's worried about a sneaky reversal of the old "I used to be an atheist..." play, or possibly she's aware of this link and wants to discount it before any bugger gets clever in the comments.

Oh, and another quote, after discussing religion from an evolutionary angle:

This isn't the kind of debate that the New Atheists are interested in.

Now I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's one of the areas of research the Richard Dawkins Foundation is very much interested in.
