Richard Dawkins

“There`s an infinite number of things that we can`t disprove. You might say that because science can explain just about everything but not quite, it`s wrong to say therefore we don`t need God. It is also, I suppose, wrong to say we don`t need the Flying Spaghetti Monster, unicorns, Thor, Wotan, Jupiter, or fairies at the bottom of the garden. There`s an infinite number of things that some people at one time or another have believed in, and an infinite number of things that nobody has believed in. If there`s not the slightest reason to believe in any of those things, why bother? The onus is on somebody who says, I want to believe in God, Flying Spaghetti Monster, fairies, or whatever it is. It is not up to us to disprove it.”

–Richard Dawkins, quoted in Wired
