Posting III: The Four Horsemen - Part 9 - Part 12 genre: Hip-Gnosis & Video-Philes

Anyone interested in understanding the thoughts which underly atheism and an opposition to the constructs of religion would be well served to watch this multi-part program. The participants are Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens. Each has drawn significant attention with their recent publications. Each is frequently misunderstood by those who view their words as little more than an assault upon theism.

Far removed from the hype and media attention paid to the writings of these four scholars, this round table discussion allows the viewer to see that atheism is far more an acceptance of reason than a rejection of religion. As such, the objective of atheism isn't premised upon vilifying religion for the sake of vilification; it is an attempt to establish a basis for human that is focused on what we share in our humanity and not what we embrace in the promotion of any particular iteration of religious ideology.

The following four video clips comprise the final entry of a three part posting here at Thought Theater. Part one can be found here and part two can be found here.

Please feel free to offer your thoughts on the many subjects discussed by these men. As Hitchens notes during the program, debate and dialogue are the essential elements in effecting a change in our existing and long-held constructs.
