What Jerry said

On Jerry Coyne's web site today (never call it a blog; he gets upset), I found this:
Religion and spirituality impact purpose by telling us false stories about the “purpose” of the universe, as well as giving us “purpose” in our life that’s grounded on fiction and false hopes of an afterlife; and they impact reality by distorting our notion of what is real and true by heaping respect on faith, which is the opposite of rationality.
I've been meaning to say this for some time. Now I don't have to.
