The beliefs he advocate forming are about what stuff communicates, and the behaviour of the audience sounds like a perfectly good way to base such beliefs on. (You found out what “cat” or “shit” meant (denotatively and connotatively) in English by noticing what circumstances English speakers used “cat” and “shit” in, didn't you?)

Rationality witticisms suitable for t-shirts or bumper stickers

What are your best short witticisms, suitable for use on a t-shirt, bumper sticker, or similar location? Ideally something that might make someone reading it think, or get curious enough to ask about it. Simple in-group identification is fine too, though.

For context, therufs is spending today at the NC Maker Faire making t-shirts, and asked me for suggestions this morning. As I was still mostly asleep, I wasn't very helpful.
