As he suggests, all the evidence points in our direction. And it’s a good thing we stopped relying on what we thought was rational and began relying on science to guide us. If we depended on our logic alone, would we have realized that the Earth revolves around the sun? That we exert a gravitational force on the planet? That all living things are related?

Religious beliefs may seem rational, but they don’t stand up to the evidence. Reality is often irrational, but that’s where the evidence leads. I know which side I prefer.
