Okay, this one got the tears. Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, circa October 2011.
I read Richard Dawkins’ in his silky voice and now I’m all misty.
I read them all in all of their lovely voices, and I’m also a bit teary-eyed. Cancer is not great: how sickness discriminates against no one.
I mainly reblogged this because of the bowtie, but also because it’s Dawkins.
…but mainly because of the bowtie.
|Richard Dawkins:||[The Magic of Reality] is a book about science. It doesn't talk about God.|
|Bill O'Reilly:||It mocks God, I looked at it. Come on!|
|Richard Dawkins:||Which bit have you looked at?|
|Bill O'Reilly:||I went through that book, and you're basically saying that everything can be explained by science. Correct?|
|Richard Dawkins:||Well, everything about the natural world can be explained by science. But where does that mock God?|
|Bill O'Reilly:||Yeah, it basically says that these things are myths, they're not really true.|
|Richard Dawkins:||Every chapter has myths at the beginning--|
|Richard Dawkins:||Some of them are Aztec myths, there are ancient Egyptian myths, Greek myths, Judeo-Christian myths.|
|Bill O'Reilly:||Whatever! Don't play these semantic games with me! You know what you're doing. You're trying to get to the kids and say, "You're an idiot if you believe in God."|
|Richard Dawkins:||It's got nothing to do with God! I'm talking about myths from all over the world. The Judeo-Christian myth is thrown in occasionally, as one of many myths that come from around the world.|
|Bill O'Reilly:||But the Judeo-Christian philosophy isn't a myth. It's reality.|
The latest instalment of The Office retrospective.
Did a most enjoyable interview with Richard Dawkins today for Channel 4.
It was about the meaning of life. Didn’t take long. I answered “have a laugh and don’t hurt anyone, bye,” I jest of course. We talked for about an hour and a half. They probably only need a few minutes but I was loving it. They have strict instructions to make me look as clever and articulate as him.
Spoke to Karl today. We started recording it for the show but then it took a strange turn. Karl was actually really affected by the slums in Africa and we sort of ignored the fact that it was for TV and had a long a heartfelt conversation.
99% of it won’t make it into the show because 1. it was about 15 minutes long and 2. it wasn’t strictly entertainment. But it really showed another side of Karl. I knew that side existed but the public don’t. If you get my drift.
Anyway, quite a pointless anecdote really but then this is my personal blog about stuff that happened to me today. What do you want? I had a fight with a bear today. I didn’t. I had a chat with some people. But some very interesting people.
OMG, BOTH of them?!!?! My HEROES!
