I’d also like to add that a discussion about religion’s role in the 21st century can be approached from a variety of angles, and evolutionary biology is, in my opinion, one of the more interesting ones.  Just as Sam Harris can speak to religion from a place of neuroscience, Richard Dawkins expertise in evolutionary biology is exactly the kind of angle that can make these “debates” unique. 

 

Excellent point, though, about the cult of personality.  I wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more skepticism in general.

"I'm getting a little bored with Dawkins and these -debates- that aren't really debates at all. "

 

You make good points, Rick, but I'd offer an additional consideration: these debates (which aren't really debates) aren't really intended for you. That is to say, they are directed at an audience other than nonbelievers who are already part of the secular culture movement.

 

All best,


Zachary
