Interesting Today 3/31/11

tell me again how being religious makes you a better person  it's not true, they've actually done studies

"Tell a devout Christian that his wife is cheating on him, or that frozen yogurt can make a man invisible, and he is likely to require as much evidence as anyone else, and to be persuaded only to the extent that you give it. Tell him that the book he keeps by his bed was written by an invisible deity who will punish him with fire for... eternity if he fails to accept its every incredible claim about the universe, and he seems to require no evidence what so ever." - Sam Harris
old one, but good one. dawkins nails it... again! i heart him, too.
death anxiety powerful motivator to believe
"It's natural to think that living things must be the handiwork of a designer. But it was also natural to think that the sun went around the earth. Overcoming naive impressions to figure out how things really work is one of humanity's highest callings." — Steven Pinker
"Progress is born of doubt and inquiry. The Church never doubts, never inquires. To doubt is heresy, to inquire is to admit that you do not know—the Church does neither. "
— Robert G. Ingersoll
