The Softer Side of Dawkins

A lovely video from the British Humanists emphasizing the positive values of humanism. Authors and philosophers speak, in addition to (of course) scientists like Dr. Dawkins, who manages to get through his part without calling anyone in *particular* an idiot.

A bit of science triumphalism here and I still believe there are worrying limitations to making reason (at least, as most people conceptualize reason) the keystone of humanism, but they do a fine job at expressing the uplifting, inspiring aspects of this worldview.
