Dawkins vs. Haggard

Ted Haggard is the evangelical mega-star currently in the news because... well, you know. Everyone knows who Richard Dawkins is, but he's currently in the news because of his new book The God Delusion.

So it's interesting that Dawkins interviewed Haggard not so long ago as part of a documentary on the mad, mad world of hyper-religion. See the YouTube video of it here. Notice how Haggard's lips are twisted into a vicious snarl during the 1-on-1 interview with Dawkins. Guess T. H. was needing a meth fix, or at least a "massage".

On a lighter note, check out the Dawkins interview with Stephen Colbert here.

And then, since this is a science blog, check out Sean Carroll's review of The God Delusion.

Lastly, I might as well mention my own article on Steven Pinker's essay on Dawkins.
