The enemies of reason is a television documentary in two parts, written and presented by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. Is it rational that the dead can communicate with the living and give advice on how to live their lives? What about sticking pins into your body to free the flow of Chi energy and cure your illness?

O bending spoons with his mind alone? Is that rational? Richard Dawkins does not think so, and feels it is their duty to report to the areas of belief that exist without scientific proof, however, manage to keep the nation under his spell. He will face the world’s leading proponents in their field of expertise, meet the victims who have used them and expose the history of movements – from the charlatans who have milked these practices to the experiments and tests have not produced conclusive results.

Dawkins points out that some of the achievements of science and describes it as the release of most of the people of superstition and dogma. Picking up his superstition-reason distinction in the root of all evil? (While recycling some pictures of him), then says reason is facing an “epidemic of superstition” that “impoverishes our culture” and enter gurus who persuade us “to escape reality.” He calls this day in dangerous times. Return to the achievements of science, including the fact that, by extending the life expectancy of people, helping them to take more advantage of living. He turns his attention to astrology, which criticizes the stereotypes without proof.
