I love the honor & respect that Richard uses when talking about Dan. These 2 are definitely high on my list of "intellectual heroes"

Dan's talk is long (at over an hour) but extremely worth the time. I highly recommend a viewing. It is enlightening in more way than one!!

I would have to attribute my conversion, from Christianity to Atheism, to Dennett's book 'Mind's I'. I read it back in 1998 and fell in love with his writing style and ideas. His books lead me to Dawkins and eventually Darwin! We should have true regard for these heros who risk their lives for truth, and its wonderful to see these masters receive the honor due. And, I thoroughly agree with you Robert, it is well worth an hour of our time. One of the greatest experts on the subject giving us technique and perspective on effective methods of spreading Truth! Invest an hour and spread the wealth :)
