Novella on skepticism

Skepticism is about the serious business of doing science, which combines open-minded curiosity with rigorous methodology. Of course what happens is that whenever skeptics point out a lack of rigorous methodology the true believer claims that we are trying to kill their curiosity.
– From Steve Novella

He's talking about Deepak Chopra's penchant for pseudoscience, but I think it's an apt description of theologians as well.
