I still don't entirely agree with the use of mockery against religious ideology. Not to say I'm against using mockery for social change, it's proved very effective against repressive and violent honour cultures. But mockery is at base an appeal to common sense; and many of science's most fundamental concepts affront common sense (though not evidence or logic) just as much as religious beliefs.
