Things that make you go hmmmmm

I came across this quote today and it struck me. I thought I'd share it with you and see what you think:

"With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion." - Steven Weinberg

I mostly agree with his statement, though I'd add a final premise to his logical flow: "For evil people to do good things, that takes religion."

The trick to his statement is to define a "good person" or an "evil person." If we're going by the biblical definitions, there has only been one good person.

The rest of us need religion.
