In doctor who did the doctor ever state something somewhat like "they discovered a beetle that couldn't have evolved which proved god existed and since god is based on faith he must not exist" – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk).
- You're thinking of a passage from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, not Doctor Who. It's the Guide's entry on the Babel Fish. You can see the versions of that entry from the Hitchhiker's TV series the movie, on YouTube if you search for "Babel Fish" (ignore the first result from "21st Century Cat"). (I'd link you directly to them, but that would violate this site's video policy.)
- So, no, there's nothing like that in Doctor Who. Doctor Who has never said anything explicit about the existence, or non-existence, of God (though several stories have criticized religion, directly or indirectly). However, Douglas Adams, who wrote The Hichhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, was script editor for Doctor Who for a while, and did slip in a few references — including one to Oolon Colluphid, who is mentioned in the Babel Fish passage as having written a book titled Well, That About Wraps It Up for God. You can decide for yourself what (if anything) that means about the Doctor Who and Hitchhiker's universes. —Josiah Rowe talk to me 04:35, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
