Dawkins’s accusation is that religion is absurd and therefore unacceptable in public life: he sees faith as a form of mental virus, [...]
I know we've seen more than enough interviews with Lawrence Krauss and Richard Dawkins about their movie The Unbelievers, but this segment on Ontario's The Agenda with Steve Paikin is worth a listen if for no other reason than Paikin (a gracious host who isn't trying to pick a fight) questions Dawkins' "charm" in the film (around the 4:50 mark): [Click headline for more…]
