Jonathan Miller's: A Rough History of Disbelief
(and The Atheism Tapes)

→ by Danieru
THE best documentary of all time is up, ready and available to view on Veoh video.

Jonathan Miller's A Rough History of Disbelief explores the development of atheism as a singular mode of being, clarifying quite spectacularly the emergence of secular thought over the past 500 years. Featuring interviews with Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennet, Arthur Miller, Colin McGinn and other secular luminaries, it is a MUST see.

Watch all three episodes here:

Episode 1: Shadows of Doubt
Episode 2: Noughts and Crosses
Episode 3: The Final Hour

UPDATE: The spin-off interviews from the series, called The Atheism Tapes, are now online:

Watch all six interviews here:

Parts 1 & 2 : Colin Mcginn and Steven Weinberg
Parts 3 & 4 : Arthur Miller and Richard Dawkins
Parts 5 & 6 : Denys Turner and Daniel Dennet

Yeah, for some reason when I uploaded that one Google rejected it. I am trying again. There will be a way!

Look out for Miller's follow-up to the series. 6 interviews cut from the program were edited for release themselves. They are called 'The Atheism Tapes' and some of them can be found on google/youtube etc.

Luckily each episode is standalone. I managed to find another copy of episode 3 lurking on google, although it was about 1/2 the file size (and hence quality). Good enough though.

A more interesting documentary than Dawkin's Root of all evil. I am rapidly becoming totally addicted to documentaries on Google. Thanks to all who post them. There is a very good Richard Feynman interview (about 45 mins) on a Horizon episode somewhere.

The little I have read of this book: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Blank_Slate was both relevant to this piece and interesting.
