Bit too long[edit]

IMO. Just the one long exposition from the student, and then the priest should drop his Bibles (KJV, ASV, ESV), his crucifix, his rosary beads, his communion wafers, and his chalk, and rush out of the room. Fuzzy. Cat. Potato! (talk/stalk) 02:32, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Actually...[edit]

...that young student's name was Christopher Hitchens. The following excerpt from page 87 of God Is Not Great reads;

In early April 2006 a long study at the University of Oregon was published in the journal Science. Based on the reconstruction of ancient genes from extinct animals, the researchers were able to show how the nontheory of "irreducible complexity" is a joke. Protein molecules, they found, slowly employed trial and error, reusing and modifying existing parts, to act in a key-and-lock manner and switch discrepant hormones "on" and "off." This genetic march was blindly inaugurated 450 million years ago, before life left the ocean and before the evolution of bones.

One does not simply lift passages out of my bible without me noticing. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 03:44, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
