  2. This is a repeat of Dawkin's approach on the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures. Still works today.

    I think it worth posting this scene independently. It is a new cut or it is just new to the blog writer. Whatever. It is good. :)

  5. religion is not about truth, it's a culture thing, like getting drunk on oktoberfest.

  7. Except science often does work somewhat like this... (I say as a scientist.)

    The schools people are at correlate well with their opinions and there are generalizations across regions and countries. West Coast vs. East in the US is common... US vs. UK vs. continental Europe... etc., etc.
