Rev Neil Glover says he once heard Richard Dawkins say “Oh God” (Perspective, 16 May). He infers Dawkins was praying to a Higher Power. But it is a mistake to leap to a pleasing conclusion while ignoring other explanations – such as, that he just reached for a mild expletive.

Rev Glover is right, though, to say our age is not godless. Many still dream of a heavenly parent who rights wrongs and rewards us at life’s end; a matter of faith without an iota of proof.
