Thought of the Day: Science vs. Religion

“Science flies rockets to the moon. Religion flies planes into buildings.”

TheUnbeThat’s not my thought but rather a slogan on a sign I saw in a fantastic new documentary: The Unbelievers. It looks at the work renowned scientists Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss have been doing, travelling the globe to talk about the importance of science and reason in a world that’s becoming increasingly subjugated by religion – particularly politically motivated religion. I encourage everyone to see it. Not only is the content quite thought-provoking, and frankly spot-on, but the film is also very well done. And be sure to stick around for the credits, as they feature clips from a number of notable non-believers, including some brilliance from Ricky Gervais.
