Status: 2 part documentary
Premiered: August 13, 2007
Show Categories: Documentary
Planned number of episodes: 2

The Enemies of Reason is a two-part television documentary, written and presented by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins.

From the makers:

Is it rational that the dead can communicate with the living and give sound advice on how they should live their lives? What about sticking pins into your body to free the flow of Chi energy and cure your illness? Or the bending of spoons using your mind alone? Is that rational? Richard Dawkins doesn’t think so, and feels it is his duty to expose those areas of belief that exist without scientific proof, yet manage to hold the nation under their spell. He will take on the world’s leading proponents in their field of expertise, meet the victims who have used them and expose the history of the movements – from the charlatans who have milked these practices to the experiments and testing that have failed to produce conclusive results.

Well that is one of the general problems, and where do we draw the line? Are we defending a certain view of the universe, or are we merely using those views to back-up our hypotheses in order to advance towards the truth? We have the laws of physics and other important theorems that need to be kept defended in order for the future science to make sense. But this in turn is also a problem, science makes so many discoveries that the math and scientific knowledge we know today is changing. As an example, scientists recently supposedly broke the speed of light by method of quantum tunneling (no surprise there, if we were to ever break the speed of light we'd have to go quantum). I guess in order for us to actually progress in humanity, we have to keep questioning our lives and scientific discoveries, and not just take everything that is fed to use as the ultimate truth.

Yay! Dawkins is fantastic. It is great to see someone stand up against nonsense.
