Wise words from the mind of Christopher Hitchens, from the closing of the “Holier Than Thou” episode of Penn & Teller’s “Bullshit!” (Season 3):

“Faith is the surrender of the mind. It’s the surrender of reason. It’s the surrender of the only thing that makes us different from other mammals. It’s our need to believe, to surrender our skepticism and our reason, our yearning to discard that and put all our trust or faith in someone or something that is the sinister thing to me. Of all the virtues, of all the supposed virtues, faith must be the most overrated.”
