a film by Richard Dawkins

Here is science as epiphany! For Richard Dawkins, science fulfills the human needs that religions once filled. This documentary brilliantly and clearly describes life, the universe, and our human place in it. In this film, Dawkins unrolls an educational gem that mesmerizes young and old alike. His demonstrations are illuminating as are his wildlife, his adventures in virtual reality, and his special guests including Douglas Adams. Dawkins will enable us to understand the way the universe works around us and in us. He is an arresting speaker, never shy of controversy or bold statement. Perhaps he is the Carl Sagan of a new generation. His capacity for clear explanation, assisted by excellent and beautiful illustrations, is formidable. This is a film you can learn from and enjoy and please bring your children too -- it could change their lives!

Wheelchair accessible at 411 28th Street

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Vegetarian Tea House
