Interview with Richard Dawkins on Swiss TV

This was originally uploaded on Richarddawkins.net yesterday. The topic is The Greatest Show on Earth, but the interviewer is insistently trying to change the subject to The God Delusion. She asks ridiculous questions such as "do you think religious people are mentally ill" referring to the title, The God Delusion (insert facepalm here). Later, she suggests that if Bach had been an atheist, he probably wouldn't have composed beautiful music. However she ignores the fact that not all classical composers, artists and painters were inspired by God, they made art to live on too (besides some suggest that Beethoven composed Für Elise for Elisabeth Röckel, not for a Supreme Being e.g.).

actually, pretty bad interview in the sense that some of the questions were ridiculous.

But as always, dawkins handled it very well.
