Skeptical scrutiny in religion, eh?
A fictitious TV character (House)said it best: "If you could reason with religious people, there would be no religious people"

And now, another DEEP THOUGHT from Carl Sagan:
“It is of interest to note that while some dolphins are reported to have learned English—up to fifty words used in correct context—no human being has been reported to have learned dolphinese.” – Carl Sagan
No human has ever read a dolphinese book, or used a dolphinese computer, or ridden in a dolphinese car, or flown in a dolphinese plane, or been treated in a dolphinese hospital. I suppose if Mr. Sagan were still alive, he would be musing over why humans don’t roll over, beg, & fetch for dogs.
"Experience has repeatedly confirmed that well-known maxim of Bacon's that 'a little philosophy inclineth a man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s minds about to religion.' At the same time, when Bacon penned that sage epigram... he forgot to add that the God to whom depth in philosophy brings back men's minds is far from being the same from whom a little philosophy estranges them." – George Santayana, The Life of Reason, Volume III: Reason in Religion
