The statement, which I believe comes from a 19th century writer, "God is my
favorite fictional character." And also Laplace's supposed "I have no need for
that hypothesis" reply to Napoleon.

You are too kind sir. Nowthen, a question for you, since you are up to speed on
religion and for the rest of you religion hipsters:
*What is the best refutation of religion you have ever seen, heard or read?
It can be a book or anything you want, a lecture by Dawkins, even the ExI-chat
archives. Before I present my answer, I will offer the second best, and one
that Max More might suggest: Bertrand Russell's Why I am Not a Christian.
But I have in mind one that is better still than that devastating volume, which
I will share once I see some of your answers.
