Christian Nation - Frederic C. Rich The Selfish Gene - Richard Dawkins An Appetite for Wonder: The Making of a Scientist - Richard Dawkins

Richard Dawkins talks about his new book project, evolution and mentioned a few books, some are his, some are what he read.

Writers and intellectuals read a lot. The characteristics of intellectuals is their desire to learn about things. So reading is good way to acquire these knowledge. 


A Christian Nation is fiction that imagine Sarah Palin being President, and how horrible for everyone else that would be. 


Interesting talk. 


The best bits are in the Q & A. 


Richard being an honest person, would say from that he doesn't see any benefit of having a religion or have it continue in society.
