"Dawkins seeks more converts to atheism" An interview on MPR

http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2009/03/04/midmorning1

From Black Sun Journal, Mar 4, 2009:

"Overall, a good interview. The host comes across as somewhat hostile at first. But she’s just throwing the typical objections at him, which gives him a chance to address them, which he does. He dismisses bad arguments and straw-man accusations deftly and with characteristic British charm.

Every time I hear Dawkins speak, I’m amazed people could possibly refer to him as “militant.” First, he’s kind and gentle in the way he speaks. Second, he makes many concessions to uncertainty. It’s clear people continue the ad hominems because nothing else can even appear to provide cover for theists against his arguments."

This is a follow-up to Michel Poisson's earlier blog (which is excellent, btw, check it out!).

For some reason that link isn't working. If I cut and paste it does but I can't click through directly. Just so you know.
