he seems to make sense. I would like to see this movie =)
It should be pointed out that Galileo was a devout Catholic. He meant that there is no reason why he can't use his intellect while believing in God. He did NOT mean that he reasoned away God with his intellect.

Hence why Obama's 'bitter' remark about gun-toting lower class Republican-voting social conservatives was dead on the money. It's also how the Repubs who keep these very same people down can keep getting their votes as long as they stump on anti-choice pro-homophobia.

"Religion is poison." - Mao Zedong. The butcher isn't actually a hero of mine, I've worked with people who somehow survived the cultural revolution. But it's a good quote nonetheless.

EDIT: The problem with most revolutions is that they're ugly, brutish affairs, and the leaders have a nasty habit of... well, it's all in 'Animal Farm'. Absolute power.

Calm down, nowhere in the quote did it say "God doesn't exist."

That was calm. I myself don't believe in God but just noticed the meaning of that quote seeming to be misconstrued.
