I think Dawkins missed the point about the "Heil Hitler" reference. I suspect the critic meant that, even in the absence of religion, other justifications are found for atrocities, such as political ideology. Any form of supremacist thought, whether based in religion or not, can lead to the most horrible crimes. Organized religion is just one form of supremacist thought.

Debra very well may be right about that. I was a bit thrown by that turn in the speech as well.

At the same time, I understand why Dawkins is sesitive to that accusation....I've heard it countless times myself.
