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

Ted Haggard: Sometimes it's hard for a human being to study the ear, or study the eye, and think that happened by accident.
Richard Dawkins: I beg your pardon, did you say by accident?
Ted Haggard: Yeah.
Richard Dawkins: What do you mean, by accident?
Ted Haggard: That the eye just formed itself somehow.
Richard Dawkins: Who says it did?
Ted Haggard: Well, some evolutionists say it did.
Richard Dawkins: Not a single one that I've ever met.
Ted Haggard: Really.
Richard Dawkins: Really. You obviously know nothing about the subject of evolution.

Truth
22 September 2007 | by viamundSee all my reviews

It's about time that somebody made a documentary like this. All religions are the same - foolish superstition -. Do these people actually believe that their holy books and myths were written by divine supernatural pan-dimensional beings? There were written by Human Beings not unlike themselves. There is no longer any purpose for these superstitions. They have no redeeming qualities - unless fear, shame, lies, intolerance and hatred are your ideas of good qualities -. God is dead... it's about time. Try having faith in Humankind instead because that's the only way things get done. Vapid religions succeed in creating hate, praise Mankind instead
