    In this video Richard Dawkins makes an impressive and humorous comparison between scientific thinking and religious thinking. A very good example of why it must be "faith" and not "fact". :D

    Dawkins on Bill O'Riley. O'Riley: "If science can't prove where it all started, I'm throwing in with Christianity." Apparently because Christianity has more authority (regardless of the lack of proof) to explain where it all began...

    Tom, you had it right. It's a shame those who quote you most choose to ignore some of your better quotes.

    Who was it that said, "You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think"? Oh that's right, it was Dorothy Parker. Never-mind.
