The Priest: I don't think there's any such thing as an atheist. Everyone believes in God. I knew someone who claimed to be an atheist once. He claimed not to believe in God despite all our conversations. But we went to the beach one day, and he got caught in a rip and found himself being dragged out to sea. And guess what -- he called on God to save him. So much for atheism.
Me: For my part, I don't think there's any such thing as a believer in God. For example, you think it's terrible to kill someone. Why would that be, when their spirit just goes somewhere else? Secretly, I think you suspect there's no life after this, and you muster your faith every day just to keep that suspicion at bay. And you're right that people do turn to religion in times of crisis. That's because that's when people reason most poorly.
Priest: You think reason is good, and it is, as long as you listen to God. You need to remember that the foolishness of God is wiser than men.
Me: Unless God doesn't exist, in which case all the foolishness belongs to yourself.
