Quote: "You can now buy a Picard facepalm statue.BY ALEX GILYADOV Star Trek captain Jean-Luc Picard's classic facepalm pose has finally been turned into a statue.

The bust, from IconHeroes, is available exclusively from ThinkGeek. It captures the USS Enterprise-D captain executing his glorious facepalm maneuver. Priced at $65 USD, the statue measures six inches tall and four inches wide."

Or if you're poor like me just quote the article.

But like religion itself it's an argument that really depends a lot on not thinking too deeply. For one Hitler himself didn't eliminate anyone personally he had a lot of foot soldiers most of whom were good Christians and they pushed people into the ovens. Religion has done a bad job of stepping up and preventing violence-prone bullies from doing their thing. If anything it usually justifies acts of madness. And 20th Century Fascism and Communism while not strictly religions as we've come to think of religion, really were religions. They were state religions. Hitler was seen as infallible and Godlike. Hirohito was absolutely a God on Earth to the Japanese people. We shouldn't get too hung up on the word religion.

"The bottom line is whether people think and act rationally or not and whenever they organize their lives around something that could best be described as groundlessness bad things happen. Even if the central story seems harmless like there's a God who loves you so much that he had his only Son whacked so that you could keep on sinning. Still, doesn't matter, once reality has left the building, once it's up there in the ether then anything can be extrapolated or tacked on by Preachers and Priesthoods and delusionally, power-hungry pricks. It's not that big a step from, 'Your God is the only God and he loves you very much,' to 'You really should get out there and start killing for him.'" (Bill Maher, Religulous) Consider
