Rabbi Shmuley Boteach was named the London Times Preacher of the Year 2000 and is the author of 20 books.<ref name="Shameful Attack">[http://www.beliefnet.com/Faiths/Judaism/2008/05/Richard-Dawkins-Shameful-Attack.aspx Richard Dawkins' Shameful Attack], Beliefnet blog entry, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, May 2008</ref>
{{cquote|That is a particularly bold untruth. Our debate, which took place at St. Catherine's College, Oxford on Oct. 23, 1996, attracted hundreds of students and featured, on the atheist side, Prof. Dawkins and chemistry Prof. Peter Atkins, and on the religion side, me and Prof. Keith Ward, Oxford's Regius Professor of Divinity. Student president Josh Wine was in the chair," the rabbi explained.
"In a vote at the end of the debate as to how many students had changed their minds after hearing the arguments, Dawkin's side was defeated and religion prevailed, which might account for his selective memory," he wrote.<ref>[httphttps://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=61565 Rabbi reveals video of debate that 'didn't happen'], WorldNetDaily, April 14, 2008</ref>}}[[File:Shmuley Boteach.jpg|thumbnail|150px|right|[[Shmuley Boteach]]<br /><br /><small>(see [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RebShmuley.jpg license agreement])</small> ]]Rabbi Boteach reported at Beliefnet:{{cquote|"I also gave Dr. Dawkins the opportunity to even score by accepting a further debate, at the time and place of his choosing (within reason, of course), to which he has yet to respond."<ref name="Shameful Attack" />}}
A video of the debate that Dawkins lost to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach is available was sold at Rabbi Schely Boteach's website.<ref>[https://web.archive.org/web/20071101052456/http://anhonestdebate.com/2007/09/03/shmuley-boteach-vs-richard-dawkins/Shmuley Boteach vs. Richard Dawkins]</ref>
Incidentally, Paul Humber notes there was a deception that occurred during email correspondence with Mr. Dawkins concerning the tally of vote counts that occurred for the [[Huxley Memorial Debate|Oxford debate between creation scientists Professor A.E. Wilder-Smith and Professor Edgar Andrews and evolutionist Richard Dawkins and John Maynard Smith]]. Mr. Humber did not indicate whether Mr. Dawkins committed the deception or was merely duped by someone who provided an altered account.<ref>[http://www.creationresearch.org/creation_matters/pdf/2003/cm08_04_rp.PDF Debating Dawkins], by Paul G. Humber, M.S., Creation Matters, Volume 8, Number 4 (July / August 2003)</ref>
