Richard Dawkins lecture: The greatest show on earth live

Back in March I went to this lecture by Richard Dawkins hosted at the University of Auckland. I was intrigued by his comments about ‘thankfulness’ in it – interesting that people can start from the same place and come to a huge range of different places in their understanding of the world.

Anyway, the lecture video is now available at the link below:

    John Bishop had an interesting reflection on the “thankfulness” comments.

    …” thankfulness must surely have an intended, if not a real, object (the child could not be grateful to Santa if she didn’t at least believe that Santa is real).”
