Need a line from Kevin Smith's "Dogma"

I need a line from the move Dogma by Kevin Smith. I can't find a script anywhere online (at least the entire script, for free).

The line(s) are at the very end. I think Chris Rock speaks them. Something about not believing in anything, but acknowledging the possibility of certain things.

This?

I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant.

I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can't generate. Life becomes stagnant. That was one thing the Man hated - still life. He wanted everyone to be as enthralled with living as He was. Maybe it had something to do with knowing when He was going to die. but Christ had this vitality that I've never encountered in another person since. You know what I'm saving?"

And then later:

"RUFUS
When it rains, it pours. You saying you believe?

BETHANY
No.
(beat)
I have a really good idea . Beliefs are too
dangerous."

Found it at the cached link here.

The end of the script has a portion talking about God:

RUFUS
She's not really a woman. She's not really anything.

BETHANY
No - She's something, alright. Something comforting.

RUFUS
Crisis of faith over?

BETHANY
I think I'm now burdened with an over-abundance.

RUFUS
When it rains, it pours. You saying you believe?

BETHANY
No.
(beat)
I have a really good idea . Beliefs are too dangerous.
