Richard Dawkins' "The Root of All Evil? Part 1: The God Delusion"

As part of Diversity Week, the Rationalist Society presents The Root of All Evil? Part 1: The God Delusion. Approximately 1 hour of film, with a discussion to follow. Food will be served.
Wednesday 1/23. Classroom A, 6:00.

This BBC documentary, presented by eminent ethologist and biologist Richard Dawkins (
University of Oxford), explores the unproven beliefs that are treated as factual by the world's major religions and the extremes to which fundamentalism has taken them. Dawkins argues that "the process of non-thinking called faith" is not a way of understanding the world, but instead stands in diametric opposition to modern science and the scientific method; it is divisive, dangerous, and at the core of much of today's global conflict. ~50 mins.

For those unable to attend, this film is available online at: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4321574955310561251
