Excerpt of comments to Cobb County Board of Education
Sept 26, 2002 during new policy adoption meeting and after theocratic
comments offering faith as science. Transcribed from Penn & Teller
show on Cobb County Creationism
"I'm flabbergasted!" .. "This is America ... OK ... And to deny that this whole issue is about religion is ludicrous to me. It is spin. When someone comes up to me and says intelligent design is science and then says it's based on God.. That's religion!........Do the right thing! If you pass this thing make sure you put correct science in the science classes!"
I then turned my back to the board, extended my arms out again, this time in a gesture embracing the audience and said:
"God bless all of you because I'm a religious person too."
