The Enemies of Reason

What have New Age, astrology, 9/11 conspiracies in common? Most of you lot already know the answer, but none of them are rational.
"Apparently harmless but utterly irrational belief systems from astrology to New Age mysticism, clairvoyance to alternative health remedies are booming. Richard Dawkins confronts what he sees as an epidemic of irrational, superstitious thinking...
He explains the dangers the pick and mix of knowledge and nonsense poses in the internet age, and passionately re-states the case for reason and science."
Episode 1 of 2: Slaves to Superstition
Annom edit: Richard Dawkins: An atheist's call to arms:

That was interesting and funny!

I love Dawkins! He has started a (peaceful) war against religion with reason as his WMD.

There are some good quotes in this video, but I forgot them :)

I'm waiting for the next episode!
