Richard Dawkins is Oxford University's "Professor for the Public Understanding of Science."


Author of the landmark 1976 book, The Selfish Gene, he's a brilliant (and trenchant) evangelist for Darwin's ideas.


In this talk, titled, "Queerer Than We Suppose - The strangeness of science," he suggests that the true nature of the universe eludes us, because the human mind evolved only to understand the "middle-sized" world we can observe.
