Why I love PZ Meyers

Because the guy keys in on just the right word or image:

Even worse, how can we sense this evidence? We need to use a special instrument.
That instrument is the heart. "It is the heart which perceives God, and not the reason". "The heart has its reasons, which reason does not know". Pascal's reasons of the heart are meant to take over from an intellect that operates on hard evidence but has run out of it. "The heart has its order, the mind has its own, which uses principles and demonstrations. The heart has a different one".
It's all fluff and nonsense. Tingley doesn't have a skeptical or scientific neuron in his head, and it shows that he's trying to think with a muscle.
