Dawkins - Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life

It's really great to see Richard Dawkins keep producing thought-provoking TV series like this.

This time, he's not arguing if there's God or not, which I think is a settled question in most people's minds.

He's asking, if there's no God, then, what is it that makes us good?

What happens when we die?
If there's no afterlife, how we should prepare for it without being despaired?

What is the meaning of life? What is the point if this is the only life and sooner or later we will check out?

These are profoundly important questions.
The point he's making through this series is a familiar one for people like me who have been following him for a long time.

Still, I hugely admire him for keeping his life long mission of educating us with reason and science, making us think for ourselves, emancipating us from tyranny of false consolation, that is true nature of religion.
