Джеймс Уотсон (James Watson) Джеймс Уотсон (James Watson) “The biggest advantage to believing in God is you don't have to understand anything, no physics, no biology. I wanted to understand...

Nobel Laureate James Watson, Youngstown State University speech, quoted in The Vindicator, Dec. 2, 2003

"I don't think we're for anything, we're just products of evolution. You can say 'Gee, your life must be pretty bleak if you don't think there's a purpose' but I'm anticipating a good lunch."
Interview with Richard Dawkins
