Dawkins' show was pretty good. But the targets - astrologers, psychics and mediums - are pretty easily shot down. Also the sort of people who trust in such nonsense are the sort of people who simply refuse to be told that it is nonsense, no matter how much evidence is shown to them.

Next week's show, about alternative medicine, homeopathy and the rest, should be better on the basis that there are plenty of supposedly intelligent people who believe that shite is legit.

Skeptico does a sweet job making Melanie Phillips of the Daily Mail (who tries to critique Dawkins and his show) look clueless and totally out of her depth on the subject at hand. She'll go a long way in journalism.
