With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." -- Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion

Dawkins discussed this quote when he spoke at ASU on his God Delusion University Tour 2008.

Great stuff, thanks. I liked his comment here also:

"I get emails from people who live in the Bible Belt and who tell me that they're afraid to go public as Atheists because they think it would affect the family business if people knew they didn't believe in God. Is this the kind of religious freedom that America is so proud of? 'Praise the Lord, or else....'? ... "

''Isaac is up in Heaven now.'' It was the funniest thing I could have said to a group of Humanists. I rolled them in the aisles. It was several minutes before order could be restored.



'And if I should ever die, God forbid, I hope you will say, ''Kurt is up in Heaven now.'' That’s my favorite joke.'
