While touring in support of his worldwide bestseller The God Delusion, Richard Dawkins made the case for removing the âkid glovesâ when dealing with religion. To sold-out crowds on college campuses across America, he described a new âwave of reasonâ which he feels is sweeping the globe. With his trademark wit and humor, Dawkins attempts to raise consciousness about religious beliefs and their absurd, unquestioned acceptance in the modern world.
Also included in this collection are two Biology lectures, which Dawkins delivered during a trip to the Galapagos Islands. One covers Neo-Darwinism, and the other explains Sex Ratio Theory and Sexual Selection.

I was invited several months ago to speak at the Faclan Book Festival in Stornoway and I was delighted to accept, as I have a great affection for the Highlands and Islands but have never visited Lewis and have heard such good things about its beauty and about the friendliness of the islanders.

In front of a packed crowd during his panel titled "My Two Years with Dawkins, Christ and a Small Crab Called Eric" at Comic-Con International in San Diego, artist, writer and indie filmmaker Dave McKean recounted two recent life events on radically opposite ends of the philosophical spectrum: an all-ages book he illustrated with scientist and Atheism proponent Richard Dawkins called "The Magic of Reality," and a film he shot starring Michael Sheen in Port Talbot, Wales called "The Gospel of Us," a modern day interpretation of "The Passion" story chronicling Jesus Christ's final days of life on Earth.
