Richard Dawkins: unhand the lost boy now before he’s lost forever!
the priest: who are you?
Richard Dawkins: why i’m Superatheist come to save the day of course.

the priest, knowing he has no argument, backs off and retreats in shame. the boy races to Richard Dawkins’s side and the two confidently leave the church together.

the priest (waving his fist in the background): damn you, Dawkins, INRI does not stand for I’m Nailed Right In!

the boy: Mr. Dawkins, you’re my spiritual guru.
Richard Dawkins: i know, kid, i know *)

And off they flew through time and space to visit the Blind Watchmaker. I think he lives in Italy….*)

Time to hammer a few nails into the evil priest in an attempt to reinforce the difference between good and evil.

Strategically pinned nails, of course.:)

That’s the whole point, isn’t it?
