"I'm a member of no party. I have no ideology. I'm a rationalist. I do what I can in the international struggle between science and reason, and the barbarism, superstition and stupidity that's all around us."

"My problem with relativism - the idea that there is no absolute truth - is that, in the end, you have to say so what? It doesn't matter that you can't prove that we're not the dream of a genie because it's functionally uninteresting. I get frustrated that it's culturally acceptable to place opinion on a pedestal that doesn't seem to relate to information. Science is a structure in place to stop people imposing personality onto the pursuit of knowledge. Pragmatically, it's the best system. Nothing else predicts anything, or generates anything."
- Tim Minchin
"There are only three things I'm afraid of and Nicolas Cage is four of them."
