I led a classroom of London high schoolers for a Channel 4 documentary, on the subject of Charles Darwin and evolution. It inspired questions from curious young minds that I then engaged with - about the nature of religious belief, about time and space, and about the truth of the origin of life.توسط Richard Dawkins

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is one of my heroes, for all the work she has done to expose ignorance and oppression, for her stance on the human right to liberty. I am surprised she aligns herself with Christianity - and I fear she mixes being a Christian up with being a good human being. Here's a heartfelt letter I wrote to her about it. Tickets to Dissident Di…

The human eye and the human brain help us process reality. How accurate is our shared perception of reality? Scientific knowledge helps us clear the rubble from the path and see things for what they are. In the last part of Growing Up In The Universe, I take you through virtual reality models in the human mind and in computers. Through them we exam…

You cannot make complex, efficient working objects, like the human eye or the wings of an eagle, in a single step. It would be like getting from the bottom of a mountain to the top in a single leap - highly improbable. The third part of the Christmas Lectures demonstrates this fact, and illustrates how evolution from simplicity to complexity takes …

When language is warped to redefine “violence” as including the non-physical act of "misgendering" (Which I might see it as a mild discourtesy), yet excludes incitement to real violence, such as "If you see a TERF, punch them in the fucking face," and when obvious satire is characterized as bigotry, you have to wonder whether debate will be shackle…

I interviewed the Nobel laureate and theoretical physicist Steven Weinberg to understand physics as the bedrock of science, its efforts to explain the world and answer questions about the universe. What, if anything, came before the Big Bang and before the period of Inflation? How real are string theory and the multiverse? Does anyone really unders…
