Is Religion a Force for Good or Evil?

This is the most respectful debate I have seen on this issue. It’s like a breath of fresh air!
“In this debate on what are arguably two of the most important questions in the culture wars today[most important questions in life!] — Is Religion a Force for Good or Evil? [man is the force for good or evil. Religion is only a tool] and Can you be Good without God? — the conservative Christian author and cultural scholar Dinesh D’Souza and the libertarian skeptic writer and social scientist Michael Shermer, square off to resolve these and related issues, such as the relationship between science and religion and the nature and existence of God. This event was one of the liveliest ever hosted by the Skeptics Society at Caltech, mixing science, religion, politics, and culture.“
