This month's debate statement: Quote from Yann Martel's Life of Pi, when the lead character is discussing a favoured science teacher: "I felt a kinship with him. It was my first clue that atheists are my brothers and sisters of a different faith, and every word they speak speaks of faith. Like me, they go as far as the legs of reason will carry them -then they leap." He goes on to add: "I'll be honest about it. It is not atheists who get stuck in my craw, but agnostics. Doubt is useful for a while... but we must move on. To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation."
