"I thought this from Richard Dawkins was pretty powerful:
A quote from Kurt Wise who is an American geologist; he studied geology at Harvard, no less, under Stephen Jay Gould, no less. And he was set for a good career as an academic geologist which all his life he had desperately wanted. The problem was - it came from within - it was his religious upbringing; his firewall of faith. And he couldn't reconcile the two - his scientific education with his religion - and he literally got a pair of scissors and went right through the Bible and cut out every verse that would have to go if he accepted his scientific education. And in the end, he decided there was nothing left of his Bible. He therefore tossed out science and said, "with that, in great sorrow I tossed into the fire all my hopes and dreams in science." And he goes on, "I am a young age creationist because that is my understanding of the scripture. As I shared with my professors years ago when I was in college, if all the evidence in the universe turns against creationism, I would be the first to admit it. But I would still be a creationist because that is what the word of God seems to indicate. Here I must stand."
If religion can do that to a highly educated Harvard geologist, just think what it can do to an average school child or student."
