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
