In particular, I was amused by the idea of debating the New Atheists by way of anagrams. I can imagine it now – the cut and thrust of improvised wordplay. Crowds heckling, jeering, placing bets on who would be the last man standing. A quintessentially English cocktail: two parts Countdown to one part 8 Mile.
But before engaging in ‘apologetics Boggle’ I would suggest Andrew does his homework and perhaps considers duelling under a pseudonym, because it wouldn’t take long for a great mind like that of “Rancid Dark Wish” to realise that Andrew Wilson is an anagram of:
LADEN WINS ROW (which makes him sound somewhat like an apologist for Al Qaeda)
RENAL WINDOWS (which I just thought sounded funny at first, but as it turns out is actually a thing)
Or my personal favourite…
DARN SWINE OWL
I fear the debate may be over rather sharply, with a clear victory to the godless wordsmiths.
(Not that I fair much better: A THERMAL ITCH)
