Richard Dawkins: Darwinism C4

The pedigree is stunning, but Dawkins exhibits an intelligence below average in his reasoning.

When face to face with the leader of the church he has just spent 5 minutes describing as blocking the display of 3 million year old bones, the leader clearly states that his only problem with the exhibition is it's portrayal of the artifact in a biased way towards evolution theory. Even with the benefit of editorial after sight it seems Dawkins isn't very wise.

In conclusion to the program, Dawkins summises touting his pet theories of the selfish gene dominating via altruism. Stunning that he gives no credence to the main source of altruism in modern society: religion. Surely to be properly academic he needs to cite reference honestly, and not seek to pervert the truth because of his own prejudice?

By missing it out, Dawkins condones religion as the strongest driving force for the most altruistic in human behaviour.

Dawkins was picked for this series because he's controversial. The man exists to make money from cashing in on people who don't want to think about it too much.
