Dawkins interview…

A great series of short video interviews by John Harris, as part of his National Conversations series, also including clips from members of the public.

This is the Richard Dawkins one which obviously focusses on religion and God.

I also watched the Lauren Laverne one which talks about women’s role in television and gender issues.

Synthetic life…

Excellent cartoon from a while back from the Guardian…

‘Humanity will thank heaven that this creator of synthetic life is playing God’

‘Spare us the parade of ethicists and clerics. This is a moment in evolution, as radical an invention as agriculture or industry.’
