wasn't me what said it

“I don’t believe in God because I don’t believe in Mother Goose” - Clarence Darrow

“When a man is freed of religion, he has a better chance to live a normal and wholesome life.” - Sigmund Freud

“Of all religions the Christian is without doubt the one which should inspire tolerance most, although up to now the Christians have been the most intolerant of all men.” – Voltaire

“In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.” - Friedrich Nietzsche

“What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof.” - Christopher Hitchens

(And what’s really going on here…)

“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful”. - Seneca the Younger

(Seems there is another side to the coin...)

Nice to see your cut and paste skills are improving.

(The other side of the coin is tails)

That all ya got? "The other side of the coin is tails" Will send out some more quotes you'll like later. You can read 'em after evening prayers, I suppose. BTW, Selwyn use your picture in his article? Scary! I'm afraid!

?

In the 18th or whatever century, when the term was coined... it was not PC to call the two sides of the coin heads and asses. It was probably all of those darn Putitans. Save your quotes, they were falatulence when they were said and cyber methane today.

How about a quote from your favorite "wise man" Darwin,

"We civilised men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilised societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man itself, hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed."

?

And yet more from the tormented mind of Voltaire


"What is faith? Is it to believe that which is evident? No. It is perfectly evident to my mind that there exists a necessary, eternal, supreme, and intelligent being. This is no matter of faith, but of reason."

Question Mark Man (?):

Take it easy! Stop with the Google-ing for neat-o quotes. You want to feel better? Go to confession or something. I don't care.
