15 hours of smart people and smart discussion

If you haven't already seen Beyond Belief 2006 then I suggest you check it out here. There's a whole 15 hours of relatively interesting debate and presentations from some very well known scientists and philosophers including the always on form Richard Dawkins. What's great about this is not the depth of the discussion, which quite frankly surprised me in the way that even at this level people trot out the same stupid arguments, but the beginnings of a genuine sense of responsibility within the scientific community to begin to take leadership in the promotion of critical thinking and the definition and dissemination of demonstrable truth. It's really quite exciting.
