When scientifically investigating the natural world, the only thing worse than a blind believer is a seeing denier.
Ignorance is a virus. Once it starts spreading, it can only be cured by reason. For the sake of humanity, we must be that cure.

I love the smell of the universe in the morning.
God is an ever-receding pocket of? scientific ignorance.
