“The persistence of religious profession is irritating. It is a sign of something intellectually unserious in the professor and his appreciative audience. But it is not alarming once you realise that it is all just talk.”

    And it’s very revealing that when religious individuals are very ill, they seek an actual doctor. When there’s nothing that can be done, then they seek a priest. And that’s exactly what priests do for the dying: nothing.

    You can test this quote’s claim by making it into a drinking game. Grab a bottle of your favorite hooch, and switch on any religious channel. Take a shot every time the host says anything meaningful, or measurable, or realistically important. It’ll be the soberest, most boring drinking game you’ve ever had.
