39. I disagree.

The quotes are close, but they are both short and referring to religious extremists flying planes into buildings. But OP quote was an overt reference to a common concept of faith (moving mountains) and a real result of faith (destroying skyscrapers). Your quote is intended to contrast the real result of science with the real result of religion.

They're both good quotes, and are indeed similar, but I wouldn't assume the OP quote was derived from this one. (But I'm often too eager to extend the benifit of the doubt, so there we are.)

Thanks for the quote, though. :)
