Single-God Religions and Morals
Controversies and Philosophical Absurdities

The Nobel Prize-winning American physicist Steven Weinberg said, 'Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, it takes religion.'

"The God Delusion"
Prof. Richard Dawkins (2006)1

Blaise Pascal (he of the wager) said something similar: 'Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.'
