What kind of creatures are we? The video has just been published from the long-awaited discussion between evolutionary biologists Richard Dawkins and Bret Weinstein in Chicago in October.

In it, they explore vital disagreements about key issues in evolution, in particular the role of belief structures such as religion. Dawkins famously describes them as ‘mind viruses’ while Weinstein claims that this is not the case.

Rebel Wisdom’s David Fuller sat down with Bret Weinstein to discuss the debate and its fundamental importance to our understanding of human evolution.
