I have to say, I thought this program was excellent. Dawkins's
argument and reasoning was crystal clear and I found myself agreeing
with all of the points he made.
He wasn't agressive in any way (that was left to the people he talked
to) - just explained calmly and rationally the ways in which religion
can cause problems. Top marks Dawkins!
The only thing that irritated me slightly was the overblown title, but
I doubt that was Dawkins's idea. More likely I think, to be Channel
4's attempt to over-dramatise the program in the hope of attracting
more attention to it.
I would be interested to see what everyone else made of it.
