I really enjoy posting in the category “Women overcoming wonky thinking”. And this one is a cracker!
This video shows Jane Caro as the second speaker opposing the motion: Atheists are wrong.
The debate started with philosophy and moralising from the believers. This was all very heady, stultifying and correct. Then in sweeps someone pragmatic, who has experienced the physical reality of living with religion – a woman. This was a ray of sunshine. No philosophy here, just raw practicalities. Jane Caro was clever, witty, and a real knockout. She made it very evident that god is manmade.
Even Buddhism and the Dalai Lama got it in the neck – hard to do, but she did!
