Richard Dawkins - Queerer Than We Suppose - 2005



Richard Dawkins' jaw-dropping talk on our bizarre universe (TEDTalks)
TED Conferences
22 min 42 sec - 27 Sep 2006

Richard Dawkins is Oxford University's "Professor for the Public Understanding of Science." Author of the landmark 1976 book, The Selfish ... all ยป Gene, he's a brilliant (and trenchant) evangelist for Darwin's ideas. In this talk, titled, "Queerer Than We Suppose: The strangeness of science," he suggests that the true nature of the universe eludes us, because the human mind evolved only to understand the "middle-sized" world we can observe. (Recorded July 2005 in Oxford, UK. Duration: 22:42)
