"We've heard some pretty extreme statements of hatred and bigotry - such as I haven't really heard before. I don't see what future the world has as long as people think like that. And people are going to go on thinking like that - as long as they're brought up, from childhood, from the cradle, to think that there's something good about faith. To think that there's something good about believing because you've been told to believe rather than believing because you've looked at the evidence."
- Richard Dawkins, "The Root Of All Evil - The God Delusion"
