"Compass presents one of the most contentious programs ever to be screened on ABC TV, when Oxford University Professor Richard Dawkins examines God, faith and religion, in this compelling two-part investigation of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Root Of All Evil? embarks on a personal and highly controversial journey to demonstrate that religion is exactly that - the root of all evil in the world. This strongly authored two-part program accuses the three main religions - Christianity, Islam and Judaism - of beliefs that defy science; of mental and child abuse; and of stunting the mind's capacity for understanding. Professor Dawkins investigates what fundamentalism across all three religions, and in particular, the rise of the neo-conservative evangelism in the United States, means for the future of the world. Professor Dawkins challenges what he describes as 'a process of non-thinking called faith'; ranging from the political influence of rich and powerful Christian fundamentalist institutions in America, to the deadly clash of Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the Middle East. He describes the Holy Land as the least enlightened place on the Earth. A microcosm of the threat to rational values and civilisation posed by religion, whose irrational roots, he says, are nourishing intolerance and murder. In part two, The Virus Of Faith Professor Dawkins takes strong exception to what he calls "religious brainwashing of children". He expresses his deep concern about faith attacking the young and infecting generation after generation. "Faith acts like a virus that strikes the young, and the good book that people follow for moral instruction actually reveals a god that is the most vindictive character in all fiction," he says.-- Website
