Richard Dawkins on Why Evolution Trumps Creationism | Adelaide Festival 2010

Also available on YouTube
From ABC Big Ideas:
He's the King of All the Atheists, and now Richard Dawkins is hammering home what he sees as his key argument against the existence of God. In his book, "The Greatest Show on Earth", Dawkins aims to put the theory of evolution in a factually unassailable position. Here, at Adelaide Writers' Week in 2010, he goes through his book chapter by chapter, and in doing so attempts to convince his audience of the absolute veracity of Darwin's theories.

Richard Dawkins is the author of several books on science and on atheism, including "The God Delusion", "The Selfish Gene" and "The Extended Phenotype". He is the founder of the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science. In 2008, he was part of a group of humanists and secularists responsible for the controversial London bus-borne advertisements that advised people "There's Probably No God. Now Stop Worrying and Enjoy your Life".

Professor Gavin Brown is a mathematician and the Inaugural Director of The Royal Institution of Australia. Prior to this he served for twelve years as the Vice Chancellor and Principal of the University of Sydney.
