“I think it is a pity to live your life in ignorance and embrace that ignorance – for instance with ideas like intelligent design. We live in a world that is entirely powered by reason: everything in your office and my house exists because of reason. It is a very odd world where people reject reason and yet benefit from the riches of reason.”

They’re presently curled up next to each other in a little nest in their little cage looking as snug as two bugs in a rug.
