Publisher's Summary

Hear British scientist Richard Dawkins and geneticist Francis Collins on this edition of Fresh Air. Richard Dawkins is a professor of the public understanding of science at Oxford University. The New York Times Book Review has hailed him as a writer who "understands the issues so clearly that he forces his reader to understand them too". In his latest book, he writes about what he sees as the irrationality of a belief in God, examines conceptions of God in all forms, and sets down his arguments for atheism. His book (and audiobook) The God Delusion is now out in paperback. (Original Airdate: 3/28/2007) Then, Francis Collins, the director of the National Human Genome Research Project. Previously, as head of the National Genome Project, he helped decode the human genome. Collins is also an evangelical Christian and author of the book The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief, which is now out in paperback. (Original Airdate: 3/29/2007) [Broadcast Date: March 7, 2008]

Dominated by Dawkins

During the program, we hear from Dawkins for about 25 minutes but from Collins only about 10. I was disappointed each guest did not have the same amount of time to plead his case.

Save your change and watch on Youtube

I love debates, especially science/creation debates. Both arguers represent there points well in this, but it is less of a debate and more of a crappy compilation of interviews and book promotiona shoved together and called a podcast debate. You get 25 minutes of actual argument material (15 plus mintes Dawkins, less then 10 minutes Collins, all old material), horrible questions from some interuptive NPR host, actual musical breaks and 8 extra minutes of some sci-fi movie review from a different NPR show. $0.66 is literally to much to waste on this audible title.
