Produktbeschreibung (Text der Cover Box)
There are two ways of looking at the world - through faith and superstition or through the rigours of logic, observation and evidence. In this documentaries, evolutionary biologist, atheist and best-selling author, Professor Richard Dawkins, makes a compelling argument for how reason and a respect for evidence are the source of human progress and our safeguard against fundamentalists and those who profit from obscuring the truth.
Disc 1: THE GENIUS OF CHARLES DARWIN (138 mins. in 3 parts)
In 1859, Charles Darwin published Origin of Species - and nothing would ever be the same agein. Evolution by natural selection is probably the most powerful idea anyone ever had.
In this three-part series for Channel 4, Richard Dawkins, the evolutionary scientist and bestselling author, takes us on a journey of discovery. How does evolution work? How do we know it's true, and why do some people still deny it? As evolved creatures, do we have to be callous, selfish and immoral? Dawkins echoes Darwin's emphatic "No".
Disc 2: THE ENEMIES OF REASON (184 mins.)
Part 1: Slaves to Superstition (44 mins.)
Part 2: The Irrational Health Service (47 mins.)
In this two-part documentary Dawkins confronts the dangers of the pick and mix of knowledge and nonsense in an internet age and passionately restates the case for reason and science.
