Watch Richard Dawkins interviewing a jaw-dropping ignorant and irrational creationist.
I thought he didn't want to deal with creationists anymore? Or was that just debates?
CWA is also an anti-gay group btw.
I found this interview to be problematic. Both parities had to stand for a long period of time while speaking, with a swinging camera man 2 feet away from their faces. Both parties repeated concerns, Dawkins said "look at the evidence dozens of times, while Wright kept saying there was no evidence. Dawkins should have change his tune from there, perhaps suggesting books, inviting her to visual education outfits (like TED) and gone on to more complex matters. She wouldn't have accepted or understood because she's inflexible and stubbornly dense, but perhaps a viewer might have gotten something out of it. I didn't get anything out of this except that it cements the idea that each religion thinks they are the one and only with no problems and they are right all the time. I also found it interesting that she thought that science and it's teachings should always be right, 100% of the time, or else it is a fraud. I don't think she will ever realize how closed minded she is.
I hope Dawkins never stops doing these, however.
Every time she puts on her happy-go-lucky face and says "show me the material evidence" I honestly just want to punch her in the face! ha ha
I now have even more respect for Richard Dawkins - I mean, him standing there calmly for so long interviewing her without showing signs of frustration and aggression. He simply repeats the evolutionary facts - sadly she ignores them.
What really annoys me is her creationist argument appealing to "fairness" to make room for teaching other creation "theories" in science class. You can not teach non-science in science class!
I would love to have renowned paleoanthropologists Donald Johanson and Richard Leakey simply put her straight and show her all the "material evidence" that she is seeking!
That lady wasn't interested in learning anything from a scientist. She was only interested in parroting what she just watched on some creationist youtube video from Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron. She probably calls that her science background.
Dawkins did a decent job of maintaining a straight face, I probably couldn't. You can't fix stupid, emotionally driven people. Like talking to a brick wall. There is no reasoning with them, no matter how much scientific evidence you show them.
