How can we become fully and truly human in a world plagued by violence, pain, sorrow, greed, exploitation, war, failure and death?

Tony Benn and Richard Dawkins debate the value of religion
This is rather interesting: A militant and rude atheist - or so these hosts seem to think of him - versus a very generous, kind and unorhtodox religous man. My kind of debate! Though I agree more with Benn, I think he could have made a better case for some of it. Benn does, it seems to me, make some good points about ethics and religion as a "culture." Sadly, however, Benn misses the point of the discussion. And the hosts of the show are very unfair and not too polite to Dawkins.
