I thought you all might like to know that Richard Dawkins will be a guest on Bill Maher's show, "Real Time", on HBO. It'll be shown on 10/02/09 at 10 pm, with a repeat at 11 pm.

Bill's one of us, so it's no surprise that he would want to interview a man of Dawkin's stature. I'm setting up my DVR in preparation for next Friday's show, hope you can catch the show.

Hey, cool! My 2 most favorite personalities on 1 show. I wonder what they'll talk about?
I jest, of course. Bill and Richard have helped me educate more "lost" individuals than I can recall. Mr. Dawkins in particular is such a soft spoken tornadic force. His ease of tone helped me, many years ago, relieve my bestest friend of his (albeit tenuous) hold on a dangerous belief system.

I'm already trying to invite some Christian neighbors over to view the show with me. I've done the same thing with"Root of all Evil" and other documentaries. Seriously, what's the point unless one can help others cast off the shackles of ignorance in my opinion?

I've also handed out audio book exerpts from Dawkins' "God Delusion", Harris' "Letter...", Hitchens' "God Is Not Great", and julia Sweeney's "Letting Go of God" performance to some of my neighbors and friends, casually of course. This tactic seems to work well for some reason. Perhaps it's because most Christians have not even read their own dogma and yet go to church to have a preacher relay exerpts from scripture to them vocally. Not a truly scientific method, i realize, but again it seems to work fairly well.

Anyway, thanks Susan, for your post. (And sorry for rambling)
Hey, I like it when people have something to say! I agree, they're both influential in helping me "come out of the closet" with my atheism. Plus, Bill says stuff no one else will, which is exactly what this country needs to hear. It's now ok to say you're an atheist and not feel like you're Satan's best friend or something! I can't wait until Friday and I'm rounding up friends to come over that night and watch it with us. Who knows, maybe I'll have a convert in the bunch :)
