A conversation with Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris. Both good friends of, and carries of the flame for, Hitch and his ideas. Dawkins and Harris were half of the well known Four Horsemen of the Non-Apocalypse (the others being Hitch and Dan Dennett). If you haven’t seen the video, check out the link. It’s a fascinating conversation around Hitch’s dining room table.
In case you haven’t heard, Richard Dawkins had a stroke last week. It appears that he is recovering. As many of you know, he was a great friend to Christopher, and is a strident spokesman for science and reason. Humorously, his doctor told him that in the future he should stay away from controversy. Good luck having that order followed, doctor.
Here is a personal audio. message from Richard Dawkins, which he recorded for his fans:
