5.0 out of 5 stars Two Awesome Hours With the Best!, July 10, 2008
This review is from: Discussions with Richard Dawkins, Episode One: The Four Horsemen (DVD)
If you are already an atheist or agnostic (which, according to Prof. Dawkins, is simply an atheist who doesn't want to admit to himself what he truly is) or are simply open minded, this is a fantastic dvd with the most out spoken, well informed, and controversial voices in the new atheist movement today. Prof. Dawkins of course brings the prespective of biology and hard science, Prof. Dennett is a philosopher and brings his own views from that angle, Sam Harris is a Ph.D. candidate in the field of neurology and has studied Buddhist meditation for over a decade and brings his experience in both of those fields, and of course, for wit, humour, and just mind blowing intellect, we have the immortal Mr. Hitchens who has travelled the world in his field of journalism (including Bosnia during the genocide) and has seen the horrors that men perpetrate against one another in the name of religion. I fully agree with the other reviewers: the only thing bad about this dvd is that it is simply too short. I could listen to these guys for another five hours without becoming even slightly bored! This is a great dvd and really helps to show just where each of the authors agrees and disagrees with the others as to dispute the claim by the religious that all atheists are mindless parrots (as if reiterating the same book for the past two thousand years makes one a freethinker). If you have read any of the authors or are simply curious about this subject, purchase this dvd today. You're in for some of the best hours of your life (you get a front row seat for a chat and smoke with Hitch! How can you refuse?).

Bruce Bain says:
It is laughable that you offer the claim that Richard Dawkins brings something you refer to as "hard science".
No "hard science" data is the basis of any conclusion in the roundtable discussion.

The liquor they were drinking at the table was hard though.
