The Enemies of Reason is a two-part television documentary, written and presented by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. A classical Dawkins approach on the paranormal and superstitious thinking. Communication with the dead, alternative medicine, spoon bending are just some examples of such superstitious thinking that Dawkins is eager to debate with. He calls it the “epidemic of superstition” that is actually just a runaway from the reality…Dawkins then points to scientific achievements claiming that it frees people of superstition and gives real hope in better reality.
