Trivia

Richard Dawkins has said that the title The Root of All Evil? was not his preferred choice, but that Channel 4 had insisted on it to create controversy. He wanted to title it "The God Delusion" after his book of the same name. Dawkins insisted that a question mark be added to the title because he does not believe that religion or anything is the root of evil. See more »

Quotes

Richard Dawkins: If God wanted to forgive our sins, why not just forgive them? Who's God trying to impress? Presumably himself, since He is judge and jury as well as execution victim.

one of the best atheist documentaries
21 December 2013 | by (Iraq, Baghdad) – See all my reviews

I totally agree with everything Dawkins says but the problem with atheists is that they too are fundamentalist believers just like theist ones, they are so sure that what we know yet about the universe, biology and evolution is the absolute truth and everyone else who disagree with them is blind and wrong. I don't believe that god exists (no evidence), we all know that, but I also don't believe that god does not exist as there is no evidence on this claim too, so I can say that I'm an atheist until proved otherwise. but what we think we know about god and the universe which is religion is bad and naive and causing much more harm than good to the human race(hatred, killing in the name of god, terrorism,myths and superstitions blocking our pursuit of the truth about this world). If there is a god somewhere (which I highly doubt given the indifference and lack of interference in our war torn world) I don't think that such a deity who made us in the first place and programmed us (genetics) to be good or evil would burn us in hell for eternity if he's to be fair, and if he's not then why bother praying and dedicating our time and finite resources to the stupid and meaningless rituals that we human beings do throughout our lifetime hoping that in the other life god will reward us and save us from hell when he already decided who wins and who loses.

Richard Dawkins - two thumbs up.
