"In your case, you don't just fall for it out of ignorance, you actively support believing in stupid things over truth and reason. You are not just dumb. You are passionately dumb, and you want others to be as dumb as you." - Tayana42

"Science asks questions that may never be answered; Religion provides answers that must never be questioned." - crosshatch

"The potter does not exist. There do exist, however, some roughly pot-shaped critters who nevertheless have egos so massive that they insist that their misshapen, poorly-functioning selves could only have been wrought by some infallable artisan." - Flux1370

"As for people who don't want to hear "Darwin" or "evolution". Well, boohoo, tough luck. When I'm sitting in a plane, I don't wanna hear "Newton" or "gravity" either, but that doesn't make me think that the laws of gravity can be ignored. Reality is what it is, not what you think it should be." - Seeker000

Naturally, since [the Sumerians] didn't know what caused the flood anymore than we do, they blamed the gods. (That's the advantage of religion. You're never short an explanation for anything.)- Isaac Asimov

Many have made a trade of delusions and false miracles, deceiving the stupid multitude - Leonardo Da Vinci

If you pray hard enough, you can make water run uphill. How hard? Why, hard enough to make water run uphill, of course! - Robert A. Heinlein

The hope of science is the perfection of the human race. The hope of theology is the salvation of a few and the damnation of almost everybody - Robert Ingersoll

Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? - Douglas Adams

Stoning non conformists is part of science. Stoning conformists is also part of science. Only those theories that can stand up to a merciless barrage of stones deserve consideration. It is the creationist habit of throwing marshmallows that we find annoying.

Life can be beautiful, profound, and awe-inspiring, even without an irate god threatening us with eternal torment -- or god's self-appointed spokespersons imposing their various notions of proper god-subservient behaviors on everyone else - Judith Hayes

The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church - attributed to Ferdinand Magellan

Atheists can't find 'God' for the same reason that Arctic explorers can't find Santa's Workshop - Clawed LeMew

That's the problem with fundies; if you can't even rely on them to provide fodder for a decent drinking game, how can you rely on them to save your soul? - SavannaKing2
