Would The World Be Better Off Without Religion?

"The World Would Be Better Off Without Religion" is the latest 'Intelligence Squared' debate. In this riveting Oxford-style debate held last week at New York University, four accomplished thinkers on religion and philosophy, A.C. Grayling (philosopher and professor), Matthew Chapman (journalist, screenwriter and director), Rabbi David Wolpe (the rabbi of Sinai Temple in Los Angeles) and Dinesh D'Souza (president of The King's College and author) debate the motion.
 
The audience at New York University's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts voted 52 percent in favor of the motion and 26 percent against, with 22 percent undecided. Afterward, 59 percent of the audience agreed the world would be better off without religion, while 31 percent disagreed — making the side arguing for the motion the winners of the debate. Ten percent of the audience remained undecided.

Hi there, its fastidious post about media print,
we all understand media is a wonderful source of facts.

Kept waiting for D'Souza to respond to Grayling's accurate barbs...and once again, all we get is pseudo-psych babble.
Own goal for the godmongers.

Anyone who suits up, has a few letters after his name and claims to represent Jesus Christ is a total fake. Dinesh D'Souza and Pat Robertson spring to mind. Why they are even included in a gathering of intelligent scholars is the question, since all they can do is repeat dogma and spew inanities from a book with questionable credentials.
