"Reality exists in the way it does independently of what any particular person believes about it - no amount of belief is going to change the laws of nature, or the age, scale, development and physical properties of the universe. Therefore the only way to ascertain what is true about nature is to derive our knowledge and understanding from observations of nature itself and adjust our beliefs accordingly".---
"Considering the demographics of beliefs, both religious and scientific, that exist in the world today, it is a mathematical certainty that most of the people on the planet are entertaining a belief system that is erroneous."------
"Therefore we must all make the provisional assumption that one or other of our beliefs is incorrect and in need of amendment. To do this we must free ourselves from the pride that convinces us that our beliefs are the right ones, we must not consider being wrong to be shameful, we must not "fall in love" with our beliefs and we must consider it a source of pride when we are willing to change our beliefs when they are no longer in accord with the facts."
Humility in life is the only gift I can expect when looking into the cosmos. My significance is defined by the value I give to my experiences. My purpose, however, is brought into perspective when I see the effect of my actions. They will die off, and any desire I might have had will ultimately be meaningless. We cannot focus our lives on what cannot be eternal, at least not beyond that of our achievable, self-fulfilling accomplishments and experiences. You're not eternal. Be happy now. You can.
"The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one."
~George Bernard Shaw
"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful."
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
(ca. 4 BC-AD 65)
"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration - courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and, above all, love of the truth."
- H L Mencken
"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God
who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use".
- Galileo Galilei
RELIGION IS ALLEGED TO BRING COMFORT. THINK OF THE COMFORT IT BRINGS TO GAYS, WOMEN, THE PERSECUTED, THE SACRIFICED CHILDREN, ETC. -THEREIZNOGOD
"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." -Stephen Roberts
A thorough reading and understanding of the Bible is the surest path to atheism
Can't religion just go away?
