    I will watch when I have that much spare time. Why do so many people regard Dawkins as a guru? I don't think he is particularly brilliant, although his accent makes him sound as such. Kind of just repeats the same talking points in his speeches.

    Thanks for the video, I was just looking at these a few days ago and didn't know there was one so recent.

    Beats me. He has had some good and influential ideas. But much of his stuff is hacked together for the purpose of declaring religion an mental pathology. It isn't any better than Fox News. How a purveyor of such shoddy logic got to be department head at Cambridge is beyond me.

    I doubt his ideas on religion had anything to do with getting his post at Cambridge.
