← Richard Dawkins: Life is astonishing

I was at the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington last night, 5 rows from the front with my scarlet A teeshirt on and The God Delusion under my arm for later signing by RD.

The whole night was just stunning. The capacity crowd of Wellington intelligentsia was abuzz before and after the lecture and you could have heard a pin drop during RD's address. The audience was rivetted to a talk which was an original pulling together of various strands of Richards works.

Great discussion and Q&A and massive queues for book signing afterwards.

All in all a fabulous occasion. Richard is a real rock star here in Wellington. This was obviously the case at venues in Australia and will be also the case in Christchurch and Auckland over the next couple of nights.

Thanks for coming down under Richard!
