Scientists do it by evidence is true but from that evidence they build theories and in those theories they have faith. Look at the Rutherford model of the atom that was fact at the time but is now just faries at the bottom of the garden. If the news from cern is correct then that faith is rocked. In the media reports it is always stated scientists "believe", believe not know!

Go to: What If Every Kid Read This Richard Dawkins Book?

They also need to understand it. I suspect most people will agree that all of the other religious stuff is a myth but when it comes to their own religious story they will think the book is wrong. The post assumes that all kids are smart enough to see the point Richard is making. It will create a lot of controversy but I doubt it will change many.

I agree he didn't get much time but I think Morris came across well. No substance behind what he said but to most listeners he probably sounded as clever as Richard Used the usual science teacher trick of trying to sound smart by talking about carbon dating uncertainties. I think that is bad because the guy is after all just a science teacher. Richard didn't have time to come back on the faith comment either.

I cant imagine Richard is feeling good about that interview.

Looking forward to this. This book is more than a book for children. It is going to start a serious mainstream debate on the place religion has in schools.
