Richard Dawkins: The Greatest Show on Earth

Unknown year Science 2.52K Views 0 Comments
When he has that fire in his belly, Richard Dawkins is arguably the greatest living popularizer of evolution.

His foundational work, <em>The Selfish Gene</em>, inspired a generation of evolutionary biology students, while The <em>God Delusion</em> was a powerfully effective self-esteem booster for atheists in the closet.

With his new book, splendidly titled The Greatest Show on Earth, Dawkins joins other popularizers in what has become almost a rite of passage – to <em>make the case</em> for evolution to the general public.

It’s like the <em>ring the bell</em> game at the county fair where every able young male feels obliged to step up and swing the giant mallet.
