If You Open Your Mind Too Much Your Brain Will Fall Out

Friendly Atheist 放出了 Tim Minchin 的一首歌曲:
If You Open Your Mind Too Much Your Brain Will Fall Out

除了赞叹运气运的好之外,歌词也让人喷饭:

If anyone can show me one example in the history of the world of a single Psychic who has been able to prove under reasonable experimental conditions that they are able to read minds

And if anyone can show me one example in the history of the world of a single Astrologer who has been able to prove under reasonable experimental conditions that they can predict future events by interpreting celestial signs

And if anyone can show me one example in the history of the world of a single Homeopathic Practitioner who has been able to prove under reasonable experimental conditions that solutions made of infinitely tiny particles of good stuff dissolved repeatedly into relatively huge quantities of water has a consistently higher medicinal value than a similarly administered placebo

And if anyone can show me one example in the entire history of the world of a single Spiritual or religious person who has been able to show either empirically or logically the existence of a higher power with any consciousness or interest in the human race or ability to punish or reward humans for their moral choices or that there is any reason – other than fear – to believe in any version of an afterlife

I’ll give you my piano, one of my legs, and my wife

试翻译如下:

如果有任何人能够告诉我古今中外有哪个通灵师在合理的实验中证明其可以读心

如果有任何人能够告诉我古今中外有哪个占星术士在合理的实验中证明其占星术可以预测未来

如果有任何人能够告诉我古今中外有哪个顺势疗法医师在合理的实验中证明其将有效成分在大量水中一遍又一遍稀释之后得到的包含无穷小药物颗粒的配方始终比安慰剂更有疗效

如果有任何人能够告诉我古今中外有哪个教会或宗教人士已经通过经验的或逻辑的证据证明存在一个有意识的或对人类感兴趣的或有能力惩罚和奖赏他们的道德选择的更高级的存在要么则是证明有其他任何理由——除了恐惧之外——相信有来生

我将送给你我的钢琴
加一条腿
以及我老婆
