Richard Dawkins Flip-Flopping on Debating John Lennox (Charlie Rose Show This Aug)

Richard Dawkins is to debate John Lennox on The Charlie Rose Show this August 2012, in New York. Brilliant news! Robust challenges to one's own and others' views are always to be encouraged.

But, I think many of us would like to know, therefore, does Dawkins no longer hold the view he expressed on his website last November? Is John Lennox no longer "serious enough" to be worth engaging? If so, why has Dawkins accepted? If not, will Dawkins publicly retract this statement and apologise (we all get a bit hot-headed blogging sometimes, don't we, so it's quite forgivable).

UPDATE: Michael Coren has quite a lot to say on this matter!:

However, it gets worse...

Whether he's aware of this or not, I don't know, but according to his own logic, Richard Dawkins will be debating an apologist for genocide (which was his 13th and final excuse for refusing William Lane Craig):

The following video also outlines this inconsistency:

And this one was produced the day after Dawkins wrote his comment last year:

I'm sure there must be a perfectly rational explanation... especially if we ask Dawkins...?
