Dr. Richard Dawkins is at it again, this time reading another batch of “fan mail” from his many eloquent admirers. 

Dawkins is an author, professor and evolutionary biologist, well-known for coining the term “meme” that sparked a field of study called memetics, an outspoken advocate of evolution, and the best-selling author of many books, including The Selfish Gene and The Blind Watchmaker. He is also an ardent critic of creationism and intelligent design. This has ... upset many people.

Note: Be careful when you watch the video, the language used is not “delicate” enough for many work environments. In fact, it can get downright awful.
