spiked-culture | Article | Is religion the root of all evil?

A fuzzy-thinking response to Dawkins’ absolute antitheism
(in ‘Spiked’). Author Neil Davenport says:

“religion expresses kernels of humanism that sometimes appear progressive compared to contemporary thinking. For example, the major religions recognise that as humans are capable of making moral choices, we are fundamentally different from animals. How many secularists share such views today?”

But I suspect that a morality based on “recognising” a falsehood may be less robust than one based on a truer understanding of our probable position in the universe.
