I think Francis Collins would've been funny in the Judas position.

Go to: Antimatter ‘measured’ for the first time, could reveal building blocks of the universe

What I don't get is how we can ever hope to control antimatter without dilithium crystals.

OK, at the risk of being crucified for disagreeing with Richard, I happen to have no problem with Rudolf. In fact my wife & I watch the old 60's rendition just about every year at Christmas time. (Along with The Grinch and a few others.) Call us silly or maybe kids at heart.

Neither am I offended by the Baby Jeebuses and other traditional Christmas trappings, religious or not, around the holidays. Let them have their silly displays; some of them are pretty. I don't put things up in my yard, but I don't want anyone telling me that I can't, either.

But I digress. Everyone is offended by something. We should choose our battles wisely when deciding to be vocal about it.

Another great quote in this article - though not Richard's - is A. C. Grayling's,

"Religion and science have a common ancestor, ignorance."

I love it! It's great because, without expounding, it is immediately apparent what the difference is between the two. Religion has been happy to wallow in its ignorance since antiquity. Science, on the other hand...

(Sorry, now I'm needlessly expounding.)

Anyway, I'm adding it to my list of potent quotables.

Anybody else?
