Just to be really OT there was an article about Dawkin's book in  
NewScientist a couple of months back.  He was saying that religion  
has been responsible for more killings than any other cause.  The  
writer of the article pointed out that the four or so "regimes" of  
the twentieth century that have been responsible for the most and the  
most systemic and state orchestrated killings have all been secular  
states: Germany under Hitler, Cambodia under Pol Pot, Russia under  
Stalin and China under Mao.  Perhaps religion has an ameliorating  
effect on human violence.
