SEX, DEATH AND THE MEANING OF LIFE

In the bustle of daily living, we rarely give any thought to life's big questions. It is usually in our quiet moments, or when we have experienced a life-changing event, or when we arrive at the departure lounge of life that we begin to reflect on our lives and ponder on what lies ahead for us.

BBC recently screened the 3-part series "Sex, Death and the Meaning of Life". Each episode follows Richard Dawkins, renowned atheist, English ethologist, evolutionary biologist, author and former University of Oxford's Professor for Public Understanding of Science, as he sets out on a quest to seek answers to some of life's big questions: Does God exist? Is there meaning in life? What part do we play in it? What is the role of sex in religion? Is everything, including natural disasters, predestined?

Join Richard Dawkins in his journey that takes him from the casinos of Las Vegas to Buddhist monasteries in the foothills of the Himalayas, to India's slums and to Joplin, Missouri, a city devastated by a tornado.

Whoa have to watch the 3 videos in two days. Need some time to digest them for the answer "Why do you bother to get up in the mornings?" However one thing for sure I have learned that our cousin is not the chimpanzee or monkey any more. Its an eye opener when R Dawkins says "This plant is your cousin. Just a weed?' tQ so much for the videos
