Scientific community is supporting Dawkins on religion in general in the argument that God is a delusion and religion is rising. Scientific community in general is saying that refusal to thinking and denial to science cause religion grow. Here I put some info from my web search for you. They also say alienation and isolation paves the way to different reality and terrorism. I also put some info about the evils of internet because of greedy search engines. Google is giving 25 billions of search results for some word search. It is full of deception and impossible to tackle. So internet users feel helpless against deception and in search of good explanation. That helplessness and isolation from the the reality force internet users to fanaticism and terrorism. IBM has just unveiled self-learning self-rewiring brain-like cognitive chip in last August. IBM is building this chip for use of dictators. A dictator is a dictator, military or elected, does not matter. IBM and Google are so greedy and indifferent to the survival of our civilization. As you can see our survival as a mankind depends on getting good answers without confusion and hassle over the internet. My point is that scientific community should not harrass the religious community like Dawkins. Instead, they should focus on bringing this this IBM chip to the internet users, prevent it to be used by dictators. Same scientific community should not vaste brain and computer power to search for alien life. Instead they should focus on bringing this IBM chip to the internet users. Their mistake can cause terrible attacks or accidents on in our world. They need to change this strategy in order to save our world and transform it into an intelligent civilization…

U.S. officials believe the journey for Hammami – one of 14 U.S.-born and naturalized citizens to be indicted last week on charges of conspiring with a Somali terrorist organization affiliated with al Qaeda – took him from a small town in Alabama to a radical command role in Somalia.
Hammami was a late convert to Islam, becoming passionate about his father’s faith during high school in Alabama. He was born in Daphne, a small town nestled in the Bible belt where Islam was not only uncommon, but rebuffed. His hijab and public prayer made Hammami a target for insults in the conservative community.

The Misinformation Superhighway?
The editor of Web of Deception: Misinformation on the Internet, Anne Mintz is also the Director of Knowledge Management at Forbes Inc. and is an adjunct professor at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Journalism.
NOW: What prompted you to write a book about deception and misinformation on the Web? What do you hope readers take away from your book, “Web of Deception?”
ANNE MINTZ: My hope was that people searching the Internet would become more aware of the scams, hoaxes and hate sites and would apply critical thinking skills to evaluating the results of their searches.
NOW: The dissemination of misleading or deceptive information about political candidates is nothing new to U.S. politics. Do you think it is any worse today than it has been in the past?
AM: I don’t think it’s worse; I think it’s easier. The implosion of George Allen’s campaign for the U.S. Senate from Virginia last year after he used the word “Macaca” showed us how easy it is to disseminate any information about a candidate—in that case he really said it. And, he was undone by cell phone technology, as well as the Internet. However, I can imagine a doctored video at some point in 2008 that would be hard to disprove. This would make it “worse than in the past” because technology lets tech-savvy people do it rather anonymously (or post it from outside the U.S.).
The Root of All Evil?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the documentary. For other uses, see Root of all evil (disambiguation).
The Root of All Evil?, later retitled The God Delusion, is a television documentary written and presented by Richard Dawkins in which he argues that humanity would be better off without religion or belief in God.
Dawkins has said that the title The Root of All Evil? was not his preferred choice, but that Channel 4 had insisted on it to create controversy. The 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’ book The God Delusion, released in September 2006, goes on to examine the topics raised in the documentary in greater detail. The documentary was rebroadcast on the More4 channel on the 25th August 2010 under the title of The God Delusion.
