I know this is a pretty old video, but I thought I would repost it. This is the best explanation of why science is important and why superstition is dangerous I have ever heard. It's also one of the friendliest, most science-based arguments for atheism I have ever heard.
I think Neil DeGrasse Tyson is my favorite person. If you have not seen this video, you should definitely watch it. This is the kind of video you could show to your christian family to get them turned on to why doubts are a good thing, and science has enough of the answers without religion.
In this section of the video that comes after 48 minutes, he talks about the fall of intelligent Islam. Algebra and algorithm are Arabic words; because before Islam made science and religion enemies, Muslims were very good at science. He also gives the best, most gracious explanation of intelligent design and the "God of the gaps" ever.
