← UPDATED: Beyond New Atheism?

There is a crisp logic here. I agree with Dawkins. But... Because entertainment value aside it is surely false, as well as politically unwise and, well, pretty impolite, to say that "all theology" is irrelevant (some of it is moral reasoning, isn't it?), still worse to say that "religion poisons everything", or that without religion there would be no war, or that bringing a child up within a faith is tantamount to child abuse...

Caspar Melville implies that Richard Dawkins thinks that "without religion there would be no war". Somehow I have not ever had that impression myself.

Quotes anyone?
