It's a very strange science, it's a science that does not use the
scientific method and, not surprisingly, a science that has discovered
absolutely positively nothing about the nature of the universe despite
working on the problem for thousands of years. However I will admit that
theology's rate of success is every bit as good as that other "science",

Yes all the great scientists were wrong about something, but unlike them
Aristotle was not just wrong he was also certain; he was so certain that
men have more teeth than women he didn't bother to look into his wife's
mouth. Even 2500 years ago that was lousy science.

The taunt that atheism is a religion didn't impress me when I first heard

Yes, chemistry is the product of alchemy and astronomy is the product of
astrology, but our knowledge has improved over the centuries and we no
longer need such crap.
