Richard Dawkins in conversation with Robyn Williams

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

At the Melbourne Town Hall, presented by the Melbourne Writers Festival, outspoken and influential author and scientist Richard Dawkins speaks to Robyn Williams (ABC RN) about the ideas underpinning his new book, The Greatest Show on Earth. They discuss the intricacies, the fascinating patterns and the anomalies produced by the process of evolution on earth. Dawkins then takes further questions from the audience about the theory of evolution, genetic determinism, the climate change denial movement and the place of religion in the world of science. Melbourne, March 2010


Dawkins wrote:Sarah Palin’s views are just plain bonkers.

Thanks :thumbup:
Downloading, will watch later.

Edit. to say the downloads are split up in three parts, total approx 750mb in .m4v
Found this out by watching first part and waiting anxiously for a Dawkins' Palin comment :doh:
I once applied for a job as a mustard cutter.

But unfortunately I wasn’t quite good enough.
