The Troubling Thing About Faith

Is that it works. But only up to a point. It is a fact that it helps us survive. And even live. And even live well. But it never has and it never will help us be like the Beings we worship. To feed the hungry, to clothe the poor, to free the prisoner. To reach the stars. Only knowledge can do that.

Dafydd ab Hugh critiques Ben Stein's "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" here and here very thoroughly and thoughtfully.

And I like what Eric Clapton had to say on the subject too.
