Dawkins clip

For those curious about Dawkins’ documentary, “Root of All Evil?”, you can find a short excerpt of the segment with Ted Haggard online. Haggard is extraordinarily creepy—keep some Pepto-Bismol handy if you watch it.

    I think the documentary can still be obtained via bittorrent. Try searching for ‘root of all evil’ on torrentspy.com.

    Molly, the easy but unsatisfactory answer is that they “believe”. If their religious leaders told them horse-poo was cake with icing, they would unflinchingly gobble it up. Over and over, I’m sure you’ve read and seen how intelligent persons point out that they have corrected “misnomers” that creationists make, but their, and my personal experience is belief, however idiotic or irrational wins out for them because the minister said so. It’s very sad

    I have to say that I think Dawkins was being a bit of an jackass with that whole “Nuremburg” comment, I mean he’s right in a way but I still think it makes him look like a jackass for saying it.
    I don’t think Haggard is a Nazi; Clearly Haggard is just your standard religious huckster who’s milking a bunch of unthinking sheep for all they have.

    P.S: If you ignore the lunatics and the congestion, Colorado Springs can be a nice place to visit.

    Many have asked – so – if the content of “The God Murders” found at thegodmurders.com can be of assistance in examining the Bible and Its God, feel free to use it as you wish.
