Richard Dawkins talk

I had the pleasure of seeing Richard Dawkins talk about The God Delusion at ASU recently. The atmosphere was warm, like a coming out party for atheists. The ideas were clear, he was eloquent and entertaining. (There were a few ideas that didn't seem quite right, but I couldn't put my finger on why. I'd have to watch the talk again to remember. I got swept up in the moment, real thinking has to happen later.)

In a case of (very) mild irony, I ended up playing basketball in a Mormon church after the talk (we weren't supposed to even swear on the court.)
