    I know this is kind of not the right place, but i always remember something that Tupac said (when he was being serious, and not in a song) that i want to add here.

    Did it ever occur to people that God is just good minus an o and Devil is evil with a D at the front. Religion was invented as a way of keeping the people in check! Religious are a plague on humanity! More lives have been lost through religions than every other cause of death!

    I definitely trust Bill Nye more. Neil just talked about wasting money on a statically improbable event instead of trying to solve problems we currently deal with. If a house is burning, you get out of it and put the fire out BEFORE you think about a car not stopping and crashing into your house...
