It was pointed out that a quote from Father George Coyne which I shared recently doesn’t quite put things accurately. I was able to track down some of the sources that were drawn on to make the composite quotation. The more problematic part comes from the interview with Richard Dawkins given above, in which Coyne is speaking off the cuff and so not articulating things as precisely as might be expected (although the wording is still surprising). Part of the quotation comes from an article in USA Today. And part seems to be from this interview with Bill Maher in Religulous:
Patheos Explore the world's faith through different perspectives on religion and spirituality! Patheos has the views of the prevalent religions and spiritualities of the world.
