Roaring Science

Here is a quote from PZ Myers that I find to be fantastic:

Typical apologetic rubbish. Atheists aren't trying to weaken anyone's happiness; atheists are happy without god. We've discovered that you don't need a veneer of lies to make it through life, and that the truth and reality and the real world are satisfying and beautiful — and that the nonsense the priests tell you is squalid and pathetic. The Trinity is a feeble glimmer next to the glory of the Calculus, Genesis is a short, limping, clumsy limerick next to the epic poetry of Evolution, and the mewling whining of sanctimonious theologians is a simpering whimper drowned out in the vigor and rigor of good, roaring science.
