The host is kind-of an idiot.

I love it that right at the end Dawkins points out that its not the smartest people who are having the most kids. The implication you could take is that if our current trend continues we are likely to become a less intelligent species long-term.

The host was not kind-of an idiot. He was a full blown idiot. Talk about beating a dead horse with his argument from majority, which was just as impotent each time he used it. And then he didn't have the decency to discuss Dawkins' latest book. It was the priest that the host tried to ambush Dawkins' with that moved the discussion back onto evolution and the book Richard was there to promote.

The man in the audience is very well read. He has a logical hiccup in his reasoning due to language. He says that Science cannot answer questions. The appropriate way to see it in light of scientific history is that science has not answered questions such as the causation of the big bang. There will always be questions. The lack of an answer doesn't require that one be made up. Some are talking of the universe as being elastic and the big bang was a "bounce". Is it true... not a clue but I'm ok with that.
