"Mr [William Jennings] Bryan [who prosecuted John Scopes for teaching evolution] was an honored friend of mine, yet this need not prevent the observation that the skull with which nature endowed him visibly approached the Neanderthal type.... Those who would legislate against the teaching of evolution should also legislate against gravity, electricity and the unreasonable velocity of light, and also should introduce a clause to prevent the use of the telescope, the microscope and the spectroscope...." - Luther Burbank

Peter says:
That quote is scary. But it also illustrates why Christianity is such a dangerous doctrine.

The Christian defines himself as a group or collective. It's a complete renunciation of free will, of the individual. Life is reduced to a state of being. Christianity is anti-life. The strong, the independent, the free spirit--which the collective calls "evil"--who dares stray from the flock has to be reformed or destroyed. Christianity and the individual cannot coexist. "One of us. One of us. One of us..."

"'What is love? What is creation? What is longing? What is a star?' thus asks the last man, and he blinks.

The earth has become small, and on it hops the last man, who makes everything small. His race is as in-eradicable as the flea-beetle; the last man lives longest.

'We have invented happiness,' say the last men, and they blink."
--Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration- courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and, above all, love of the truth."

but in opposition to what we know of Nature.

Ice Floe says:
FBR, if your beliefs help you through life I'm glad for you, but I have to say reading what you write about your beliefs I find nothing that would encourage anyone to embrace those beliefs. You come across as believing anyone not as "enlightened" as you is a poor creature forever doomed to damnation.
An example of your arrogance:
"To Isaac Asimov I would say that he is forgiven for his bitterness and his prideful hatred toward Christians."
Who are you to decide who is to be forgiven? I thought that would be left to your God! You are the kind of person who makes me hope that if there is a heaven and you're going to SOMEHOW end up there that heaven has separate wings for self righteous weasels like you and human beings!

"The essence of Christianity is told us in the Garden of Eden story. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your f***ing mouth shut and hadn't asked any questions.... 'Get smart and I'll f**k you over,' sayeth the Lord. Is this not an absolutely anti-intellectual religion?" - Frank Zappa

Seven Lights says:
The religious people here are always whining and screeching about how their beliefs aren't respected, and how nobody is nice to each other... Well, read on...

"You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don't have to be nice to them." - Pat Robertson, Fundamentalist Christian tele-minister, quote from The 700 Club television program.

This guy, one of their renowned leaders, comes right out with his hate speech toward other christians!! LOL...and they wonder where it comes from?

Your reply to Seven Lights's post:

Well, SL, there are Christians and there are "Christians." Pat is NOT a renowned leader except to the Christian "Right." And eveen among some of them he is suspect.

You and he seem to be peas in a pod. More or less.

"...But this is an extreme demand. The only field in which we can find absolute certainty is religion. In all other activities we must be content with the best (meaning both the simplest and the most data inclusive) interpretation we can advance, given the data as they now stand. After we accept that this is true in all secular inquiries..."
