Summary
In the face of catastrophe, spiritual people look to God for relief from their suffering. But how do atheists cope? If there is no grand cosmic plan to explain tragedy or alleviate the tedium of daily responsibilities, why bother to get up in the morning? In this program, biologist and atheist Richard Dawkins explains how science can provide meaning in a universe devoid of God
