An Interview with Richard Dawkins for al-Jazeera

Last month, Mehdi Hasan, the political director of The Huffington Post UK, interviewed Richard Dawkins at the Oxford Union for al-Jazeera television:

You can see Hasan’s writeup of the event here, but it’s mostly a feeble attempt at rationalizing his religious beliefs. Meanwhile, I saw a good chunk of the video last night (the exchanges beginning at the 8:09 and 14:33 marks are especially interesting) and the questions were exactly the kind you expect religious people to ask Dawkins.

It’s a really good back-and-forth, especially for someone who has only begun to question his/her faith. Otherwise, it’s a lot of material you’ve probably heard before.

If any other portions stand out to you, please leave the timestamp/summary in the comments!
