Religion and politics have always been an explosive mix, perhaps never more so than in the case of ISIS. But is the brutality that we’ve seen a result of violent ideology or a reflection of the darker side of human nature? Oksana is joined by Richard Dawkins, evolutionary biologist and controversial author, to discuss these issues
Oksana Boyko: Hello and welcome to Worlds Apart. Religion and politics have long been a dangerous mix, perhaps never more so than in the case of the so-called Islamic State. Is this violence and gloating evidence of everything that’s wrong with religion, or perhaps how religion can be used as a scapegoat for other, less than honourable fields of human activity? Well, to discuss that, I’m now joined by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. Mr Dawkins, it’s a great honour to have you on the show.
