    How is this possible?

    This is a two part question.

    Firstly, how could somebody possibly be this thick?



    (there's more after that one)

    Secondly, how is it possible that Richard Dawkins kept his cool so well?

    OK

    To answer the second question: I'm sure he was about to deck the bitch half way through the second part

    Richard Dawkins is great at finding straw men to 'prove' his points about atheism. The woman is obviously an idiot. Why does Dawkins waste his time with people like that? Dawkins does the same thing in his presentations, e.g. belittling the most moronic creationist theories available. I would like to see Dawkins interview a Buddhist philosopher, perhaps the Dalai Lama or Thich Nhat Hanh. But I think he's too insecure for that.

    Or that he is too polite to do that ? Besides the Dalai Lama is not asking that the US stop teaching about evolution in schools.

    I looked up to part 2 of 7. No more.

    Are you implying there are less moronic creationist theories?

    I think the more progressive Creationists have acknowledged dinosaurs might be over 3,000 years old! There certainly were breeding pairs on Noah's Ark. Probably.

    If you want the odd chortle or two, be sure to check out a few of their websites.

    Why hasn't a Buddhist asked him for a debate?

    Of course not. All I'm saying is that Dawkins is probably the world's most prominent atheist and he wastes his time belittling straw men because they are easy targets. Dawkins should up his game a little and confront Eastern philosphers and others who find hard-core atheism almost as arrogant as creationism.

    Creationism is a real and present threat. What would be wrong with fighting it? Ridicule is a good weapon to fight the ridiculous.

    Buddhists don't feel the need to defend anything as the truth whatever the truth is your own truth. Whatever you believe is true so there's no need to agree or disagree with other people's beliefs. Dawkins has acknowledged this and doesn't attack followers of Buddhist philosophy.

    IE up to you

    Looks like a cop out to me.

    Most of the Buddhists I know are hypocrites re their faith, there'd be a good discussion in it.

    One thing I learned at the village is that it is forbidden to steal, but it's ok to steal government trees because they have lots of them.

    I've now seen the whole clip and I have to say while the woman's strategy is mind- numbingly dull (and predictable), it isn't at all clear that Dawkins has the upper hand.

    This is part 1 of 7 if I recall correctly. In part two he clearly had the upper hand. He presented evidence after evidence and the only thing she could come up with was denial and parrotting again and again with "show me the evidence" which he did and she ignored.

    I couldn't get myself to look at the other parts after that.

    If we really were created in God's image, we would all look the same.

    She may have gained more credibility had she been a brunette.
