I watched that one, and part two (part two is listed on the right side of the YouTube screen, working on part 3). I like in the second video how he points out that religion is the only thing in the world that we're taught to respect regardless of the method behind the belief. We don't do that for medicine or science or engineering. However, overall he seems like a less effective Richard Dawkins (at least at public speaking).

Actually to amend that, I'm getting to the point in the lecture where's he's talking about how religion and science actually ARE at odds with each other, which I agree with - I've always thought that it was BS that science and religion were not mutually exclusive.
