The Virus of Faith (2006)

In Part 2, Dawkins opines that the moral framework of religions is warped, and argues against the religious indoctrination of children. Dawkins has said that the title "The Root of All Evil?" was not his preferred choice, but that Ch. 4 had insisted on it to create controversy. His sole concession from the producers on the title was the addition of the question mark. Dawkins has stated that the notion of anything being the root of all evil is ridiculous. Dawkins's book The God Delusion, released in 2006, explores these ideas in greater detail.
