If we took all the holy books and burnt them, they wouldn't come back in a thousand years. But if we took all the science books and burnt them, in a thousand years they would be back.

I bet the religions that replaced the current ones would be very similar though. Religions didn't spring out of no where. They are complex systems, formed over thousands of years, devised to contain the inherent savageness of humanity, and moderate the horror of existential realization.

I don't fully understand this quote. By saying all science books come back, that means that they can be proven to be universaly right. By stating that holy books wouldn't come back, you are kind of disproving current religion because in a thausand years we would come with another religion, meaning the current one is fake as well as the future one.

Yeah I've always been a fan. I'm also a fan of anything that mocks, or sheds a negative light on, religion

Yeah, absolutely! Gervais is the man.
