One thing I'd like to say. The conversations videos, between Richard Dawkins and various famous intellectuals, can be absolute gold, in my opinion. Typically, though, this occurs only when they steer clear of the boring subject of atheism.

The conversations with Steven Weinberg or David Buss give us plenty of interesting material to talk about. The conversations with bishops and other religious apologists give us nothing to do but sneer at the opposition, or compliment ourselves for being atheists. This is exactly what most regulars on this site have been doing the past few years.

I hope Richard is reading this. His conversation videos about science are wonderful. His conversations videos about religion make me want to shout out: "LEARN SOME NEW CHORDS!"

That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the Four Horsemen video, even though in large part it does concern itself with religion. Perhaps that was because Richard didn't feel the need to chant once again his customary mantra.
