Famed evolutionary biologist, author, and science communicator Richard Dawkins shares his wonder for science, debunks the entire premise of intelligent design, and calls on the scientific community to stop calling evolution a theory. He talks about Berkley University’s recent decision to uninvite him to speak and what he calls higher learning’s dangerous elevation of opinion over truth and objective facts. Plus the well known atheist talks about his friend the late Christopher Hitchens, where an atheist gets their moral code, and why he’s still more than happy to wish you Merry Christmas.
