I think it's clever, but weak. It makes a bad slogan because potential replies come so easily, and are no less true. This because it disingenuously compares the best fruit of science, with the worst of religion. Just as bad as:

a-la Stein: "Science leads to killing people, Religion leads to inner peace and meaning"

I think we can do better/smarter.

voss21: "If it's all God's plan, why do you pray?", that's the kind of thing. Thought provoking, attention grabbing, non-aggressive, but no easy answer.
