Walt: If the bus isn’t here in five minutes, I’m calling a cab, so you’re on the clock.  Who knows?  Maybe you’ll change my mind – or maybe I’ll change yours.  You think about that?  Maybe I’m going to bring you around to the glory of skepticism, save you from a lifetime of ignorance and slavery.  If you’re willing to risk that, go ahead.  Tell me why you think god is real.
