"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Sounds like "boiling a frog talk to me"
Here's some other humorous Glasgow "colloquialisms" from the back of Scottish author Christopher Brookmyre's book "A Tale Etched in Blood and Hard Black Pencil":

old firm - Ingenious idiot-identification scheme which tags halfwits, criminals, thugs and assorted neerdowells voluntarily in blue or green-and-white garments, making them easier for the rest of us to avoid.

jakey - Homeless indigent partial to Buckfast and superlager.

jakey sentence - An undaunting custodial term, like those commonly conferred on the above.

hingmy - All-purpose procrastinatory term for that which one cannot quite think of the name of yet. Equivalent of the French truc.

chook, is it - Expression of profound scepticism

afore - Earlier than the time when.

pish - Urine; urinary function. Also an incident considered sufficiently amusing as to imagine one rendered incontinent by laughter. See also deck, gut, and Morton blowing promotion in 2004.

Weird? Of course i'm weird! Life would be much less interesting otherwise. Eccentricity is the way to go.
