Scientist, Darwinian and atheist Richard Dawkins has written many books. They very quickly hit the bestseller list, thanks to his ability to translate complex scientific ideas into language the general reader can understand, without doing any violence to the science itself. His latest book The Greatest Show on Earth is his presentation of the evidence of evolution, from palaentology and embryology to genetics and geography.

He’s the King of All the Atheists, and now Richard Dawkins is hammering home what he sees as his key argument against the existence of God. In his book, The Greatest Show on Earth, Dawkins aims to put the theory of evolution in a factually unassailable position.
Here, at Adelaide Writers’ Week in 2010, he goes through his book chapter by chapter, and in doing so attempts to convince his audience of the absolute veracity of Darwin’s theories.

British biological theorist Richard Dawkins is perhaps the world’s best known atheist. He is certain that we have evolution to thank for life on earth, not a creator. Evolution is the topic of his new book, "The Greatest Show On Earth." Dawkins says the book is his "personal summary of the evidence that the ‘theory’ of evolution is actually a fact - as incontrovertible a fact as any in science." He joins Doug on Tuesday to discuss the evidence for evolution.
Evolutionary biologist and unapologetic atheist Richard Dawkins taught for many years at Oxford University as the Charles Simonyi Professor of the Public Understanding of Science. The Economist called his international bestseller, The God Delusion, "a particularly comprehensive case against religion." His other works include The Selfish Gene and The Blind Watchmaker. A follow-up to The God Delusion, The Greatest Show on Earth uses scientific evidence to argue the case for evolution.
