Atheism Examiner (and contributor to this site) Trina Hoaks had a chance to interview Richard Dawkins over the weekend at the American Atheists conference.
The lead-up to the interview is almost as good as the interview itself!
It’s very exciting — even from the sidelines — seeing such a huge Dawkins fan get a chance to talk to him in person 🙂
There are three parts here.
I do have to point out the best part of the interview. It happens when Dawkins is talking about Ray Comfort‘s pathetic debate challenge:
Richard: Yes. He has challenged me to a debate. He has offered me $10,000. I said that if he would give $100,000 to my foundation, The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science, which, of course, exists to expose people like him, that I would do it. I’ve heard nothing.
Trina: When I first heard about the challenged, I wrote an article on the Friendly Atheist Web site, which is run by Hemant Mehta, the author of I Sold my Soul on E-bay. Are you familiar with the site?
Hells. Yes. My life is complete now.
