“Man is a marvelous curiosity…he thinks he is the Creator’s pet…he even believes the Creator loves him; has a passion for him; sits up nights to admire him; yes and watch over him and keep him out of trouble. He prays to him and thinks He listens.
Isn’t it a quaint idea.”
“Unfortunately, we are unlikely to get rid of religion
because gullibility is evolutionarily advantageous”
“The problem with Government solutions
is that they have a half-life of the next election.”
“Postulating a god does not change a pointless,
meaningless, futile universe
into one with a point and meaning –
it just means it’s deliberately
pointless, meaningless, and futile…”
Something to keep you up worrying at night:
If salmon always return to the river they were born in to spawn,
how the heck did they ever spread to more than one river?
