A very intersting watch! :) Thanks for the link!

Doesn't the constant stream of theists willing to step up and challenge Prof.D with their insipid little arguments that we've all heard before, and could shoot down like beer cans on a log, start you thinking about the proverbial horde of lemmings running to their deaths.

(yes, I know lemmings don't really do that but the metaphor still stands)

I've sat here riveted for the entirety of these broadcasts. I look forward to next I hear him speak, and greatly anticipate such time as I am given to seeing him live, and honestly shaking his hand!

Thanks, I enjoyed that.

What about the bit from the question-and-answer section when that idiot from Liberty University started talking about the 3,000-year-old dinosaur bones?

What a absolute classic! If the university really does have dinosaur bones marked as 3,000 years old, then it seems that Liberty has been unable to put two and two together and realise that they've just contradicted the old 'the-dinosaurs-must-have-been-wiped-out-during-the-great-flood' excuse!

Or maybe they actually believe that Noah (who is supposed to have lived a lot longer than 3,000 years ago) took dinosaurs on the ark as well.

'Room for a few more, Noah?'

There's always room for a bit more bullshit, that's for sure.

Wow. I remember growing up in the church and hearing those around me ridicule and belittle those who are "unbelievers."

I've since come to see it is part of the human condition; so called "unbelievers" are every bit as engaged in demeaning conversation.

Also, Richard Dawkins is profound, and eloquent. However, in attempting to prove his points, he does the same as the religious persons he speaks against: he picks and chooses those passages (especially in narrative passages like the OT) which support his hypothesis and then supports them with the interpretations that fit his point.

We all like being right, no matter what the cost. Richard Dawkins is no different.

Good conversations about being human. However, if you disagree with Dawkins, you won't be threatened with everlasting torment. And religion is an emotional topic. You can't really discuss it without raising someone's blood pressure.
