Not Thinking Clearly

“How do you convince someone they’re not thinking clearly, when they’re not thinking clearly? What we’re actually saying is no magic, no afterlife, no higher moral authoritative father-figure, no security, and no happy ever after. This is a tough sell.”

—–Phil Plait, astronomer and skeptic, in a talk called, “Don’t be a dick” at The Amazing Meeting 8, a conference put on by the James Randi Educational Foundation, held in Las Vegas in July, 2012.
