Richard Dawkins - Seven Wonders of the World

In this visually and intellectually stimulating video, just released from RichardDawkins.net, Oxford evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins explains his picks for what he considers to be the seven wonders of the world (check out Sir David Attenborough's choices for his seven wonders of the natural world).

As you've probably come to expect, Dawkins doesn't merely deliver fascinating examples: he provides thought-provoking questions that elevate his discrete choices to the level of the philosophical and the theoretical, elucidating the nature of the principles that make his choices worth considering and pondering about even long after he's finished explaining them, all described with his characteristic clarity and eloquence.
