The Root of All Evil

I just watched an amazing documentary series on the BBC recommended to me by a friend called, “The Root of All Evil“. I highly recommend it. One of the most telling quotes from the movie was one originally from Steven Weinberg, the novel prize winning physicist.

“Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you’d have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.”

I think this will be one that I WILL memorize. There is also another great quote in that series:

“You can think of chimps as MS-DOS and humans as Windows 2000”.

For humanities sake, I hope the latter quote is not true. 😉
