  1. What a clear, knowledgeable thinker and eloquent speaker Richard Dawkins truly is; it was a joy to listen to him beautifully expressing his ideas. Also, the format of conversation rather than debate suits his style much better. Looking forward to seeing “The Unbelievers’ soon!

      I wasn’t able to get the video. Perhaps I should have been more patient.

      • It wasn’t easy at first, but after a few tries I eventually got it; try again, Nitya – it’s well worth the wait.

          Thanks, I’ll do that. I always enjoy hearing him speak as he is extremely eloquent as you mentioned. His diction is really clear and this adds to the impact of the content in my opinion. I’ll try again.

          PS How could anyone not be impressed!

  2. What an amazing event. Richard Dawkins really has to be up there with Sagan, Feynman and Bronowski** (the guy from the Ascent of Man documentaries) as one of the best public speakers on science of all (recent) time. His clarity of thought and ability to speak as though he is writing, which is a rare feat, is awe inspiring. Awesome!

    **Not to forget Pinker, DeGrasse Tyson, Kraus, Kaku and Brian Greene!
