On Friday night, Bill Maher had evolutionary biologist and author of The
God Delusion Richard Dawkins <http://richarddawkins.net/> on his show
Real Time with Bill Maher <http://www.hbo.com/billmaher/> for a powwow
on atheism. Aside from equating a belief in God to having an "imaginary
friend," the two discussed how it is that some scientists can also be
religious.

Perhaps predictably, Francis Collins, the head of the Human Genome
Project <http://www.genome.gov/10000779> , who at 27 converted to
evangelical Christianity
<http://www.salon.com/books/int/2006/08/07/collins/> and in 2006 wrote
the book The Language of God came up. Take a look at the video below to
see how Bill Maher caused Dawkins to lose some of his esteem for
Collins. (Around 3:40 into the video.)
