Richard Dawkins – The Genesis of Purpose

These are a series of videos that evolutionary biologist (among other things)) Richard Dawkins did back in 1991for the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures for Children talking about the theory of evolution. Still definitely a worthwhile watch. I’ve been streaming them in my car (at great expense to the battery life of my phone it seems) during work. It’s in 5 parts that are about an hour each, but really is a fascinating lecture whether you think that something just appeared and created everything less than 10,000 years ago or that we’ve slowly been evolving over millions of years. The videos are after the jump. Alternatively, you can more than likely use something like that File2HD to download them to your computer so you can watch or listen to them whenever you want.
