Richard, Dawkins. Is Science a Religion? (The Humanist 57: 1997), (26-39) Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, or even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence…Faith, being belief that isnt based on evidence, is the principal vice of any religion…Faith is one of the greatest evils in the world, comparable to smallpox, only more difficult to exterminate.
When people proclaim their adherence to a particular faith they subscribe to claims for which there is no evidence. Pascal Boyer. Nature: Religion: Bound to Believe. (Vol. 455: October, 2008.)

Dinesh Dsouza. When I debate atheists…I always keep in mind that despite their confident assertions that there is no life after death, this is a subject on which they cannot be sure…In other words, they act as if they know that there is no such life…So what do they know that we dont, and how did they come to know it. (Life after Death p. 17 & 21)
Timothy Keller- It is one thing to say that science is only equipped to test for natural causes and cannot speak to any others. It is quite another to insist that science proved that no other causes could possibly exist. - The Reason For God
Alvin Plantinga to argue that no supernatural cause for any natural phenomenon is possible is like the drunk who insisted on looking for his lost car keys only under the streetlight on the grounds that the light was better there. (Plantinga in Keller – p. 86)
Do we have good reasons to believe in God? YES!!!
