← Bad Faith Awards 2009: the polls are open

But why shouldn't it be Ratzinger?! I was very surprised to hear this from the author of "The God Delusion"!

After all, the aim of the poll is formulated as determining "the person deemed to have made the most outstanding contribution to the cause of unreason."

I know there could be more people on this list, but still: can there really be found any single person who did more for unreason than the Pope? We are talking about direct influence on over a billion people on the global scale here!

Various muslim and other fanatics may be doing more immediate harm, but their harm is much more localised...
