Quote of the Week

"[Religious] Belief can be explained in much the way that cancer can. Certainly the idea of a God that can answer prayers and whom you can talk to, and who intervenes in the world - that's a hopeless idea. There is no such thing."

~ Daniel Dennett, Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University
