Quotation of the day

[E]very time I am presented an argument for the existence of a god, it is a pungent pile of watery crap. It's never pie; I'm disappointed every time. And it's not as if they even come close, like maybe they come up with a small biscuit or a tiny sliver of pastry; no, every goddamned time it's this malodorous, reeking inanity accompanied by some squeaking, quacking idiot of an acolyte who tries desperately to reassure me that the maggoty filth he is bearing truly is a splendid pie.

PZ Myers


  1. Unfortunate that it's just a bit too long for a T-shirt -- or bumper sticker.

  2. An excellent quote. Another I like that I found the other day is Larkin on religion:

    That vast, moth-eaten musical brocade
    Created to pretend we never die

    Might work on a T-shirt...

  3. I read that as though Eddie Izzard were saying it. That makes it even better.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
