Russell's Teapot by David Raphael - 2010

Russell's teapot, sometimes called the Celestial Teapot, is an analogy first coined by the philosopher Bertrand Russell (1872–1970), intended to refute the idea that the philosophic burden of proof lies upon the sceptic to disprove unfalsifiable claims of religions. Russell's teapot is still referred to in discussions concerning the existence of God.

Russell's Teapot and Sagan's "Dragon In The Garage" are both classics, and I'm glad to have both in my arsenal!
