Seen in someone’s sig:
A simple test of the relative merits of science and religion is to compare lighting your house at night by prayer or electricity.
Two problems with this:
- Most religious people with access to electricity use it. (Maybe we should try prayer… it worked for the Holy Prophet Elias [Elijah]!! 😉 )
- Survey data indicate that most scientists have some form of religion. (Wonder why they don’t try saving their souls with science?!!)
