The Genius Of Charles Darwin: The Fifth Ape
In “The Genius of Charles Darwin” biologist Richard Dawkins proclaims that Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection is “perhaps the most powerful idea ever to occur to a human mind.” Dawkins obviously believes that evolution is no longer just a theory but a fact. As an avowed atheist Dawkins debates with several religious people in order to convince them about the fact of evolution. On the other hand, the 3 episodes of this documentary series will offer plenty of history, information, and the scientific facts related to the theory of evolution and Charles Darwin´s life.
In the second episode, “The Fifth Ape”, Dawkins discusses the human element, concluding that it is our morality and sense of altruism that set us apart from the “mindless brutality” that defines survival of the fittest in the rest of the natural world.
