Biologist Richard Dawkins launches into a full-on appeal for atheists to make public their beliefs and to aggressively fight the incursion of religion into politics and education. Dawkins’ scornful tone drew strongly mixed reactions from the audience; some stood and applauded his courage. Others wondered whether his strident approach could do more harm than good. Dawkins went on to publish The God Delusion and become perhaps the world’s best-known atheist.

Richard Dawkins spoort atheïsten aan om openlijk voor hun positie uit te komen — en om de invloed van de kerk in de politiek en de wetenschap tegen te gaan. Een strijdvaardig, grappig en krachtig pleidooi. (Nederlandse onderteling door Maarten Hofman, gecorrigeerd door Dietseleeuw)

Recorded in February 2002 at TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) in Monterey, California.
