Science!

Salon has an interview with evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. There's no way to really summarize in this post other than to reprint their lede:

Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins explains why God is a delusion, religion is a virus, and America has slipped back into the Dark Ages.
Yeah... It's scratchin' me where I itch. There's a cool section in which he compares the human brain to a computer and religion to a computer virus. It's a clever analogy. Offensive if you're the religious sort, I suppose. But agree or disagree, you should give this interview a read.

My uncensored opinion.

Oh my, not Richard Dawkins. This guy takes evolutionary theory and makes an entire philosophy out of it. What a bitter old hopeless man.
