Quotastic.

In science, ‘fact’ can only mean ‘confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.’ I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.
-Stephen Jay Gould (1941-2002), paleontologist

All religions have this in common, that they are an outrage to common sense, for they are pierced together out of a variety of elements some of which seem so unworthy, sordid and at odds with man’s reason that any strong and vigorous intelligence laughs at them.
-Pierre Charron (1541-1603), Catholic priest
