Poetic atheism, cont’d: “I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it’s much more interesting.”

Richard Feynman beautifully explains his take on the universe:

Check out the rest of The Feynman Series (companion to the also-excellent Sagan Series) here.

More on poetic atheism here. And my thoughts on how science thrives on open questions here.

  2. George Carlin (no so poetic) on religion

    But in the bullshit department, in the bullshit department a businessman can hold the candle to a clergyman, because I gotta tell you the truth folks, I gotta tell you the truth…

    When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe … in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time!

    But He loves you. He loves you… He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He’s all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can’t handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy Shit!
