Abbot V Dawkins - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Believers,
starting from statistics,
wrested power,
and, confounding statistics,
expanded the abbey:
you see, you're not smart from not believing,
you're smart from efficiency.

Non-believers don't agree,
but nevertheless believe statistics:
protection in the abbey
breeds stupidity.
