Life of Pi (2012)
Adil Hussain: Santosh Patel
Santosh Patel : Piscine, you cannot follow three different religions at the same time.
Pi Patel (11 : Why not?
Santosh Patel : Because, believing in everything at once is the same thing as believing in nothing.
Gita Patel : He is young, Santosh. He is still trying to find his own way.
Santosh Patel : And how can he find his own way if he does not learn to choose a path? Instead of leaping from one religion to the next, why not start with reason? In ten years science has taught us more about the universe than religion has in ten-thousand.
Gita Patel : Yes, that is true. Science is very good at teaching us what is out there...
Gita Patel : [puts her hand over her heart] But not what is in here.
Santosh Patel : Some eat meat, some vegetarian. I do not expect us to agree about everything, but I would much rather have you believe in something I don't agree with, than to accept everything blindly.
Santosh Patel : You only need to convert to three more religions, Piscine, and you'll spend your life on holiday.
Santosh Patel : Animals don't think like we do! People who forget that get themselves killed. When you look into an animal's eyes, you are seeing your own emotions reflected back at you, and nothing else.
Santosh Patel : Spectacle. Don't let the stories and pretty lights fool you, boys. Religion is darkness.
