Dawkins and Krauss Go on the Road

A new film is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival this week.  It's called "The Unbelievers," starring Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss.  Apparently it is edited from various conversations they have held with each other and with diverse audiences around the world. 

Watch their television promos, thanks to the Jesus Saves ... at Citibank youtube channel.  I'm also  sharing two of their road trip videos below the telly appearances.  The two videos  come from the Australian leg of their road trip.  The first is Richard Dawkins vs. an Idiot Catholic Cardinal (Caradinal Pell).  The second is from the next day, with Dawkins & Krauss together in front of a less hostile audience.  They reference the appearance with Cardinal Pell during that video.

Hah, and just today I was remarking that there don't seem to be any worthwhile movies around. I'll definitely look for this one.

I understand where Krauss is coming from but he would be better off not saying 'something from nothing' as he is stealing the xtian thunder and pissing them off. The xtain really make that claim as what material was used by gawd? Why NOTHING!
Yet the xtian can't wrap their tiny little minds around the same thing when Krauss says it.
When the woman asked about where morals? Dawkins should have said 'from the same place you get yours, from social interactions and thinking about what works.' or some such.
I always have s ball when idiot xtians ask me that silly question.
You may have heard the 'the buyBull says so, I believe, so that's it'. Well actually it should be 'I don't think or need to, the buyBull says so, I believe cuz it saves me the trouble to think, so that's it'.

That's exactly the thing I've wondered about believers. If there can be an uncaused god then why not an uncaused universe?

L.Long said...

Well Lady because the uncaused Universe does NOT supply heaven.
Of coarse neither does the gawd but they can make believe S/He/IT can.

I have been waiting for this movie to come out. I was super excited when I first heard about it... and still am.

I hope it comes here to Fundytown, or maybe I'll try to bring it here
