100 days – Day 62 Wimbledon – which starts today 🙂
The 2013 Men’s Single Final saw Andy Murray (“British” if he wins; “Scottish”, if he loses) playing Djokovic
After three hours and nine minutes, Murray defeated Djokovic 6–4, 7–5, 6–4 to win the match – the first male Briton since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the title.
It is said that Richard Dawkins was ready to believe in God!
Dawkins has for years, some say belligerently, attacked the idea that there could possibly be a God by systematically using evolutionary science to explain how our ecosystem developed.
However, the esteemed professor admitted that all scientific knowledge was facing unequivocal ‘wipeout’ as it appeared Murray was going to go and win Wimbledon.
“He was dominating,” a tearful Dawkins muttered to himself, in his Holiday Inn room. “He is dominating.”
He started to feel a sweat come on. He rifled through textbooks on his iPad,only to admit to himself that here was the one gap in our scientific knowledge. There is simply no way that Britain can possibly produce a tennis champion.”
In his mind he recalled how the crowd at Centre Court are such planks that most British players actually want them to lose in the vain hope that they puke up all that overpriced strawberries and cream they’ve eaten.”
In hushed and earnest tones, Dawkins admitted he was faced for the first time with the idea of God.
But then he dozed off.
When he awoke, in a sweat, trembling, he said to himself, “Thank God (!) it was a dream”
But when, a pipe band, outside his hotel, started to play “Flower of Scotland” he wasn’t too sure; and this was compounded when his Holiday Inn copy of the Gideon’s Bible miraculously fell from his bedside cupboard, open at the verse: “Freedom!!!!”
