The Screen Guide

In this episode, Dr. Reanney advances the controversial theory that man invented the concept of God to answer a basic biological need. He believes that man's awareness of death created a need for a belief in a hereafter. The concept of God helped to enforce a moral order, necessary for the functioning of a complex society. Dr. Reanney looks at the conflict between this moral order and the biological legacy of individual selfishness.
