Bertrand Russell on ‘Why I am not a Christian’

In this fragment from an interview given by Bertrand Russell in 1959 to the BBC in the programme ‘Face to Face’ ones of Britain’s most famous academics and Nobel Laureate explains his stance on Christianity and more.

The full video is available here.

For those of you who do not mind reading there is a very interesting transcript of a lecture given by Russell to the National Secular Society in 1927 in which Russell develops multiple arguments against Christianity in general and God, Christ and immorality in particular. It can be found here.

I of course do not own the rights to any of these video’s or texts.

Enjoy!
