If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.
"Religion is a culture of faith; science is a culture of doubt." ― Richard P. Feynman
'It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it's called Life.' - Terry Pratchett
Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

Yes, I enjoyed that. Thank you for posting it Tank. I thought the underlying conceit in religious humility was well stated (though the jargon was sometimes tiresome). However, clearly it is hard for our species to give up the desire for/intuition of ultimate significance. ;)
"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration — courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."
— H. L. Mencken
