The Big Question (3 of 5) Why are we here? - Richard Dawkins

The human race is one of the wonders of the universe. We may be unique. But why are we here? What is the purpose of life? To professor Richard Dawkins, science can tell us why are we here, and the purpose of human existence.

There are some ten million species on Earth. But before Charles Darwin, no one knew how animals came to be so varied, so complex.

For centuries people try to understand why animals was so perfectly equipped for their tasks. They assumed there was only one explanation: Natural world was designed. The designer was God. Reverend William Paley, writing half a century before Darwin, put the case with his famous watchmaker argument.

If there is no designer, how did the complexity and variety of life come about?
