Separate humorium

Eliezer Yudkowsky may be my favorite humorist:

If the priests of Baal are allowed to survive, they will start babbling about how religion is a separate magisterium which can be neither proven nor disproven.

Or the slightly less rolling on the floor laugh inducing version:

The orthogonality of religion and factual questions is a recent and strictly Western concept. The people who wrote the original scriptures didn’t even know the difference.
