INTELIGENT, of course, this is Prof Dawkins!
This is the best documentary I have seen this year and of this nature.
Definitely recommended to all, relgious or athiests!
Have an open mind and enjoy the movie.
Well presented atheists enquiry into mainstream religions. Asks the obvious questions, gets generally non rational responses.
This is an unashamedly provocative look at religion and the extreme acts is engenders. There's no counter-balance although Dawkins does give voice to those who disagree with him. The book is a lot more intellectual than this film. A lot of this documentary is defensive as he sees science under continual attack from religion. Some people consider Dawkins to be a militant atheist, but compare him against the number of militant religious people around the world and you can get a better perspective on the situation. Why can't we all just get along?
Read the book. This doesn't even come close.
Richard Dawkins is an Oxford Professor who unashamedly is an evolutionist. He explores religion, all religion from an academic mindset ie show me the evidence, test the evidence, reconstruct conclusions if appropriate. He compares this to the religious dogma of 'trust in god' and follow in blind faith. This is a facinating expose into the world of organised religion, the effects on society and its clash with scientific evidence. It is informative, it is controversial and above all it is horribly frightening. Richard exposes what evil seemingly good men will do in the name of THEIR god and what lengths they will go to to defend their faith in the face of overwhelming reason from science or even differing religious viewpoints.
Before you ask I am not a religious believer so you may discount my comments on this basis if you wish. What I am though is a seeker of knowledge and will watch and read items from both sides so as to form a balanced opinion (yes I've read the bible, lets not go into which one). If you are of the same mind this DVD is for you.
