Islam: Death for sorcery.

As long as I can access richarddawkins.net in heaven, I'll be happy. I imagine God has an amazing connection speed.

Go to: Francis Collins selcected to head NIH

I'm reminded of a quote I heard, I believe from the Fox show House. In the episode, there was a debate about praying for someone going into difficult surgery, the lead surgeon says that prayer is important and is essential, but it's for the waiting room, not the operating table. When I first heard the quote, I was angered, but then realized that it makes the most sense.

No matter the amount of debate, some people just can't let their theological 'blankies' go, If the person is skilled, whether it be a surgeon or public figure, leaving that nonsense behind during important work is obviously key.

This atheist is going to give Dr. Collins a shot, I only can "pray" he doesn't screw it up.
