Richard Dawson Says: “Maybe God’s OK After All”

Richard Dawson, popular actor, iguana fancier, science writer, and chat-show guest, says he’s had a change of heart on the “God” question.

Having proclaimed his atheism for many decades, with the foot-stomping obstinacy of Augustus-who-would-not-eat-his-soup, Dawson now says he may have been wrong.

“I don’t consider myself an atheist anymore, quite,” he says. “Maybe I’m an agnostic, because that leaves me open to error, innit?”

Dawson says he’s currently living in a caravan near Wigan Pier and working on screenplay proposal. “But I still hear from my agent every day.”
