Would the World Be Better Off Without Religion?

According to the results of this recent Intelligence Squared debate, ... well, I won't give away the answer to who won based on post-debate polling. I will say that those proponents arguing the case for religion relied too much on debaters' parlor tricks, like floating straw-man arguments, obfuscation, and loud, blustery statements (Rabbi David Wolpe). They did themselves no favors, especially Dinesh D'Souza. Meanwhile, A.C. Grayling and Matthew Chapman did a nice job making the case against religion in a quiet, humble, and reasoned manner. Listen and decide for yourselves.
