<quoted text>The war we see today between worldviews is one of extremes. Polymath seems to be one of the more levelheaded skeptics here, and Quantum Bob seems to maintain a respectable tone even though we disagree passionately.
The "fundamentalists" and "militant atheists" are the ones at each others throats while the rest of us look on in disbelief at the ignorance on both sides.
Speaking of Winston Churchill, one of my favorite quotes from him came during an exchange with Lady Nancy Astor:
Lady Nancy Astor: "Winston, if you were my husband, I'd poison your tea."
Winston Churchill: "Nancy, if I were your husband, I'd drink it.Â”
And from an unknown author:
"It's better to be an optimist who is sometimes wrong than a pessimist who is always right."
