    Dawkinks is a very outspoken atheist.

    Is stating the nonexistence of god some parameter to being an NTJ? Or I just don't understand your post.
    I just meant Js are more likely to state there can't be a god but he says he's not sure.

    Can anybody confirm this? I always thought he is sure about the non-existence of a divine being.

    He says that he is almost 100% sure. Because being 100% sure would not be scientific claim.

    Why? Is it that important?

    That doesn't mean "he doesn't state there is no god", right? He simply knows that it is impossible to formulate a posteriori statements to back up his theories. He's still an atheist through and through, who claims that the existence of a god is highly unlikely (not 100% for obvious reasons).

    Important, no. It is irrelevant in the aspect of typology.
    Interesting, yes.

    This discussion devolved pretty quickly.

    Why does everything have to be about his stance on religion?
    Based on some of his other books, he seems to be into crediting others works giving them recognition, which seems to be a Te thing. He also appreciates humour in writing, but doesn't use much humour in his own. I would say that he's an NTJ, but I haven't seen him on TV to tell if he's an extrovert.

    Hey, a little offtopic can't hurt I personally think it is a lot more interesting than his type.
