Science and Religion

“What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.”

Christopher Hitchens


“People say religion and science have to be compatible because there are scientists who are religious. And lots of religious people accept science.

“If you’re going to believe that, you have to believe that Catholicism and pedophilia are compatible.”

Jerry Coyne*


“The invisible and the nonexistent look very much alike.”

Jerry Coyne*

* Jerry Coyne is a professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago and author of the 2009 book, Why Evolution is True.
