How does Richard Dawkins feel about a deathbed conversion

His words from a Guardian article:

He seems much more worried about spurious reports of a fictitious deathbed conversion being put about by his enemies after he dies. He is probably not joking at all when he says “I want to make damn sure there’s a tape recorder running for my last words.”

The article makes another interesting point about a campaign to raise funds for an atheistic cause:

On Tuesday, campaigners announced plans for an atheist advertising campaign to appear on the side of buses with the message: “There is probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” The campaign, which was launched by TV comedy writer Ariane Sherine, blogging on Commentisfree.co.uk, hoped to raise £5,500 from supporters, which Dawkins had pledged to match with his own money, but by yesterday public donations had already raised more than £96,000.

I have a devilish image of having that kind of campaign in the US!
