The difference between science and religion

Science requires evidence.
Religion requires wishful thinking.

Scientific progress requires curiosity.
Religion requires cowards.

Science advances human progress.
Religion gets in the way of progress.

Science requires brilliant people who can think.
Religion requires gullible morons who are willing to believe any bullshit if it makes them feel good.

Science is reality.
Religion is fantasy.

Science is a search for truth.
Religion is a dishonest business for assholes who are too lazy to get a real job.

Without science we would still be living in the Dark Ages.
Religion is for people who never left the Dark Ages.

Without science we would have never learned who we are or how we got here.
Without religion biology teachers could do their jobs without being harassed and threatened.

Science makes progress possible.
Religion makes violence possible.

Science ignores religion.
Religion must accommodate science.

Science will last forever because human progress depends on it.
Religion will go extinct because it's bullshit.

There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, and science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works.
-- Stephen Hawking
