Matt Dillahunty: The Atheist Experience.

Science relies on evidence to lead us to the best possible conclusions about what happened and religion relies on something other than evidence. Why? Because they don’t have evidence, faith is the excuse people give when they have no good reason for their beliefs. If you had a good reason, you wouldn’t need faith.

Dom Helder Camara

When I give food to the poor, the call me a saint.
When I ask why the poor have no food, the call me a communist.
Dom Helder Camara, Brazilian archbishop, as quoted in Peace Behind Bars : A Peacemaking Priest’s Journal from Jail (1995) by John Dear, p. 65; this is a translation of “Quando dou comida aos pobres chamam-me de santo. Quando pergunto por que eles são pobres chamam-me de comunista.”

Professor…

Professor, that man claims the Earth is 6000 years old!
So? Just use your head and don’t concern yourself overmuch with what other people think.
But he says the fossils in the mountains were put there in a flood!
Well, evidence suggest that they were not.
But he–
A million people can call the mountains a fiction, yet it need not trouble you as you stand atop them.
But he believes the silliest things!
So?
The universe doesn’t care what you believe.
The wonderful thing about science is that it doesn’t ask for your faith it just ask for your eyes.
But he’s a US senator!
Ah. Then yes, we do have a bit of a situation.
