Richard Dawkins Vs Bret Weinstein (Debate Clip)

The last discussion before Pangburn melted down and folded. Eric reported on JRE that Bret showed Dawkins his ass, but he would be biased. Starting it......now!

I captured the last 30 min of the audio. Trying to make something happen with it.

 

Edit: I'll post a vid here if tonight's efforts prove fruitful. The thumbnail survives - ha ha you can't take that from us!

Thumbnail was the right side of what you see now. Good news is Think Club produced what you hear in the vid above. Best we could do given the circumstances. The full debate is still slated for release at some point, apparently.

I checked out Dawkins twitter and it's not working in his favor.

He was making fun of believers calling them air-heads, telling Democrats to vote in the midterms.

80% of Democrats are believers. It's still America we're talking about here.

 

Watching intelligent people NOT THINK is one of the worst things I know.k

the last 2 minutes of this clip are interesting, dawkins avoids weinstein's attempt to inject holocaust ideology into evolution theory. he brushes it off as nationalism with his go-to "that's evil" logic. the conversation is messed up.

Dawkins tries to end the discussion at the very end of this clip, and Bret wisely puts it to the audience who demand that they continue. I am probably one of only a handful that managed to watch the entire firs 49 minutes before it was yanked. Dawkins seems to be driven by political motivations - not science. It's weird.
