Just over a week ago, I went to the Union, where organized religion’s harm to society was debated. After queueing for over an hour, and then waiting for an hour more already in my seat, the debate finally started. I was looking forward to Richard Dawkins’ speech of course, and, not wanting to miss a word that came out of his mouth, I hadn’t taken my camera. But as I had come straight from the library, I still had pen and paper, and soon found myself sketching the speakers.
(With regards to the debate, it was very interesting, and also very civil. Most of the speakers made good points, though I wished the topic was one where Dawkins’ brilliance could be made clearer: he’s not a sociologist, and he couldn’t use his arguments against the existence of god or use his knowledge of science for this topic.)
