Dawkins rips Humphrys apart

I caught Richard Dawkins ripping the BBC's toughest and rudest interviewer apart on Radio 4 this morning. It was great radio. He berrated Jon Humphrys for going too easy on religious interviewees. Towards the end of the three-minute interview, Humphrys (himself an atheist, I believe) clearly realised he didn't have a leg to stand on. You can listen to the interview in horrible RealPlayer format for the next seven days here.

The interview arose as a result of recent comments made by Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, the UK's top Roman Catholic.

Curious factoid: Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor is a friend of a friend of a friend of mine. I wonder if he knows Kevin Bacon.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
