Richard Dawkins - The God Delusion genre: Hip-Gnosis & Just Jihad

The following video segments comprise The God Delusion, episode one of a documentary called The Root Of All Evil?, featuring Richard Dawkins...in which he explores the impact of religion and questions its influence in modern society. He challenges many of the precepts that underlie religious institutions and makes a comparison to science while asking if the two can coexist. He points to the current trend to deny the theory of evolution as proof that the two are in conflict and will likely continue to diverge.

As a footnote, during the documentary Dawkins visits Reverend Ted Haggard's church at a time prior to the Reverends fall from grace. Haggard suggests to Dawkins that he is arrogant in his objection to religions conflict with science. Lastly, Dawkins draws comparisons between the extremists in the Islamic world and the emerging evangelical mindset as well as other religious affiliations.
