    Alicia: Well, you never believed in me anyways. So what’s the difference?
    Devlin: It’s lucky for both of us that I didn’t. It wouldn’t have been pretty if I’d believed in you…
    Alicia: If you only once had said that you loved me. Oh, Dev.
    Devlin: Listen, you’ve chalked up another boyfriend, that’s all. No harm done.
    Alicia: I hate you.
    Devlin: There’s no occasion to, you’re doing good work.

    Inspired by this, I ran my Dawkins counter script again.

    This morning

    There are 40 mentions of ‘Richard Dawkins’ on the RDSR home page
    compared to 21 mentions of ‘science’ and 19 of ‘reason’;
    There are 4028 words on the whole page.

    On account of how articles there are attributed to their authors and sources, and many of them are by Richard Dawkins or from Truly, a sign of appalling egotism.
