  1. The strike of which he speaks was the miners’ strike of seventy four; I could elaborate, but this is neither the time or place to do so; suffice it to say that Iwas in the eye of the storm!

  2. And does anyone know if Richard plans to write anymore Biology books? It’s been awhile, but I guess that has to do with the audience he’s acquired after “The God Delusion.” My favorite Dawkins book is still “The Greatest Show on Earth.”

  3. An interesting and enjoyable interview. There is something fitting about the fact that Richard Dawkins, who has had some significant things to say about the origins of the human race, should have been born in the Great Rift Valley area, the birthplace of the human race.

  4. Well done. I’ve rarely seen Richard so amiable and at ease. Don’t get me wrong–his voice is almost invariably soothing and calm, but his body language and facial expressions often have a bit of an edge. Here he’s utterly relaxed and smiling (and the smile is pleasant, without that whiff of being poised to attack that must be unsettling to his foes).

    I suppose the benign style of the Book TV interviewer played a role, but I prefer to think that we’re catching Richard on a day after a very pleasing evening with his wife.

  5. One thing I have never figured out – why a Kindle edition costs 50% more than the paperback version, and just 2 less than the paperback? It isn’t that I cannot afford it, it that the idea of an electronic document costing nearly the same as a hardcover is annoying. (Amazon).

    • I meant only 2 less than the hardcover is the cost of the kindle, while the paperback edition is cheapest of all. Sorry.

  6. Science and reason should always win out over a false religion ,full of lies, fear and bigotry, Religion is responsible for millions of deaths in its wars and young people , like me, are very proud to be atheists,and to tell others, were going to keep spreading the good word on atheism,
