Richard Dawkins & Daniel Dennett

On June 11, 2015 I had the privilege to spend an evening with Richard Dawkins (zoologist) and Daniel Dennett (philosopher) at the Chevalier Theatre in Medford, MA. They sat and chit-chated about science, religion and the future of our world. Richard Dawkins has been an inspiration to me ever since I read his first book, The Selfish Gene, many years ago.

In line at the book signing!

In line at the book signing!

Since there was a book signing, I figured I’d write them each a haiku and hand deliver them myself! Why not?

Richard’s haiku:

the fortunate ones
derive poetry from truth
and not vice versa

Daniel’s haiku:

a man of reason
finds freedom in dominos
he chooses free will
