since it is Stephen Hawkins documentary we are talking about, one has to ask evidence and proof you have of this
anyways, i dont think he is suggesting that it is the only thing that makes good people to do bad things, but that religions, by their very inhererent nature make people to do bad things.
Oh and his suggestion that scientists don't engage in blind faith is probably the msot stupid thing I've ever heard.
he probably would say that if a scientist would have blind faith in anything else but evidence, then he wouldn't be a scientist.
But yeah, awesome documentary, well worth watching and sharing with everyone!
