Richard Dawkins to web chat with Mumsnet
Popular parenting and discussion website, Mumsent, which occasionally makes news with its high-profile group interviews with public figures, will be going head to head with Professor Richard Dawkins tomorrow, with discussion based around his upcoming TV show on ‘faith’ schools.
We’re pleased to welcome Richard Dawkins for a webchat on Wednesday 23 June from 10am-11am. Richard is a celebrated evolutionary biologist and atheist, and author of the best-selling God Delusion.
He has presented programmes on Channel Four that range from enthusing about the Genius of Charles Darwin to arguing against religion in Root of All Evil?
His latest project is taking a long hard look at education and the role religion continues to play in it.
He wants to hear first-hand from Mumsnetters what faith and church schools are really like. How successful are they? Are they selection by another means? Are they divisive? And are they making hypocrites out of non-believing parents who go to church just to send their children to them?
