The second documentary in the Dawkins season was on last night. Here it is for anyone in the UK or in the UK by proxy. This one was a collage of clips from some previous documentaries so might not be new viewing for some. Dawkins (predictably) came to the conclusion that religion was not a force for good. He interviewed a number of dislikeable figures including wonderfully hypocritical evangelist pastor, a fundamentalist Muslim, a chap who supported the murder of an abortionist and a pastor that tried to scare people Christian with a hell themed horror play. He did not tackle any non-Abrahamic religions, nor did he spend much time at all interviewing moderates. The main problem with the documentary was his claim that religion is bad while the subsequent only successfully showed the negative influence of extremist religion. He conveniently ignored the moderate churches that do a lot of good for both the community and the wider world by way of charity. He called moderates fence-sitters but he did not explain why this was inherently dangerous for society. The documentary as a whole was pretty good none the less. Dawkins steeled my dislike for faith schools in the small section on the religious education of children, while the interviews varied from being very funny (a Rabbi the everyone's favourite fallacy, evolution is only a theory) to very worrying (the Jewish-Muslims extremist convert was a vile individual with some chilling opinions). Anyone else see it? Thoughts? EDIT: It was apparently a repeat of The Root of all Evil? under a different name.
