Not only a brilliant speaker, Prof. Richard Dawkins of Oxford University is also quite a controversial and divisive figure, as one of his most famous proclamations is that religion and science are “wholly incompatible.” His most recent book The God Delusion explores this in-depth.
Before seeing this video and the one after the jump, I had never heard Prof. Dawkins speak, and I think if you watch it, you too will find him very convincing. The clips are from a lecture he did at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in Lynchburg, VA.
Make sure to watch the Q&A after the jump, where Prof. Dawkins is asked dumb questions by students from Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University. I have never seen smack laid down with such humility.
