Most polls show that about 90% of the general public believes in a personal God; yet 93% of the members of the National Academy of Sciences do not.
I continue to be fascinated that:

- some of the smartest and most generous people are atheist
And they called The God Delusion a marvelous book so I’ll have to get after reading it. (Newspaper articles that use the word marvelous are probably just a little biased, don’t you think?)
