Interview with Richard Dawkins about New Atheism

 Youtube Direktdawkins, via Reddit

Schönes halbstündiges Interview auf Al Jazeeras The Stream mit Richard Dawkins über New Atheism. Finde ich nicht zuletzt auch wegen des Formats sehr spannend, die Fragen werden live von Reddit, Twitter und GooglePlus geholt. Und Dawkins sieht irgendwie sehr rot aus, oder? Entweder zu lange in der Sonne gelegen, am Vortag gesoffen oder schlecht gepudert, der Mann. Viele zitierbare Stellen dabei, unter anderem diese hier, die man von gläubigen Menschen viel zu oft hört:

But doesn't Religion also provide a Context that without we would be in a pretty cold society if we would be living on science and facts alone, mean, a lot of people look to religion as providing a context and emotion and morals and principles to life?
No. We certainly wouldn't be living in a cold context with only science and rationality. We'd have art, we'd have music, we'd have literature, we'd have philosophy, we'd have nature, we'd have love, human love, we'd have all those things, those wouldn't go. The only thing that would go, would be supersticious belief in supernatural things. And since there is no evidence that supernatural things exist, or do anything or ever have done anything, wouldn't we be better off without them?
