Richard Dawkins will be turning his fierce rationalist gaze on new age therapies, and I can't wait. To be shown on channel 4 this month the two part series titled, The Enemies of Reason, will cover angel therapy, kinesiology and homeopathy amongst others.

Ummm, I kind of want to say that I do love you and I do care – but that wouldn't have been his character." (Or that of many middle-class father figures of his generation, a sceptic might have said.)
But Dawkins let her continue. "I'm aware that you don't have you dad's photograph out" – it was true, he didn't – "so I'm a little bit concerned why. So I'm going to ask you: why don't you have it out?" Dawkins had a bombshell ready: "Well, he might be aware that I don't have it out because he comes to the house about once a week." "Oh, he's still here," she said, adding after a few seconds: "I don't feel it's working."
"Is that because you thought my father is dead and discovered that he's still alive?"
"No, nothing to do with that. I don't know."
She commented later: "As a clairvoyant you're only as good as the client."Link
