On Friday night, Bill Maher had evolutionary biologist and author of The God DelusionRichard Dawkins on his show Real Time with Bill Maher for a powwow on atheism. Aside from equating a belief in God to having an "imaginary friend," the two discussed how it is that some scientists can also be religious.
Perhaps predictably, Francis Collins, the head of the Human Genome Project, who at 27 converted to evangelical Christianity and in 2006 wrote the book The Language of God came up. Take a look at the video below to see how Bill Maher caused Dawkins to lose some of his esteem for Collins. (Around 3:40 into the video.)
