A PZ Myers Quote

"What has occurred over the course of the last few centuries is a growing (but by no means universal or certain) recognition that science gets the job done, while religion makes excuses. Sometimes they are very pretty excuses that capture the imagination of the public, but ultimately, when you want to win a war or heal a dying child or get rich from a discovery or explore Antarctica, you turn to science and reason, or you fail."

- PZ Myers, biology professor

2. You're absolutely wrong. Christian Scientists prove God exists and that he has a sense of humor.

(Paraphrase of Mark Twain. Mary Baked Eddy proves God has a sense of humor.)

Keep doing what you do, NeoGreen! Love your posts.

6. Yes, but it's still a great way to get people to take sides and back irrational causes.

To me, religion is sanctified politics.

7. And that's exactly why it should scrutinized..

And criticized.

Religion is sanctified bullshit. But you said tactfully and eloquently.
