The separation of religion and state is held as the hallmark of modern society, and as the recent rise of ISIS highlighted, great evils are still being committed in the name of religion. Is Islam compatible with democracy, and what are the dangers of mystical thinking insinuating into political decision making? Oksana is joined by Nobel Prize laureate Sir Harrold Kroto to shed light on these issues.

Stephen Law lays out an interesting new argument that can be used against anyone who believes in an all-good god. This argument shows that a maximally good god cannot be established to be any more probable than a maximally evil god. Believers will generally reject the evil god hypothesis as absurd, but since there is such perfect symmetry in the arguments used defending the character each type of god, if theists are willing to reject the evil god hypothesis on the basis of counter evidence (the problem of good), they should be willing to reject the good god hypothesis as well.

Religion of peace….
A Muslim mob beat a Christian couple to death in Pakistan and burnt their bodies in the brick kiln where they worked for allegedly desecrating a Qur’an, police have said.
The attack in Kot Radha Kishan, 40 miles south-west of Lahore, is the latest example of violence against minorities accused of blasphemy.
“A mob attacked a Christian couple after accusing them of desecration of the holy Qur’an and later burnt their bodies at a brick kiln where they worked,” local police station official Bin-Yameen said.
Another police official confirmed the incident. The victims were only identified by their first names, Shama and Shehzad, and were married.
Pakistan’s brick-kiln workers are often subject to harsh practices. A study by the Bonded Labour Liberation Front Pakistan estimated that 4.5 million are indentured labourers.
Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif has constituted a three-member committee to fast track the investigation of the killings and ordered police to increase security at Christian neighbourhoods in the province, an official from his media office said.
Blasphemy is a hugely sensitive issue in the majority-Muslim country, with even unproven allegations often prompting violence.
Anyone convicted, or even just accused, of insulting Islam, risks a violent death at the hands of vigilantes.
