[Yes, it's Sunday and I am bored...]
- Richard Feynman: But I don’t have to know an answer. I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose — which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell, possibly. It doesn’t frighten me
- Frank Zappa: The essence of Christianity is told us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the tree of knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on.
- Richard Dawkins: I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.
- Sir David Stevens: Its 90 degrees in the shade in Jerusalem.. where did Noah get two penguins and two polar bears from?
- Jon Stewart: Religion. It’s given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.
- Geoff Mather: Can I just pin you down a little here? What exactly IS a god? You don’t know. What is it made of? You don’t know. Where is it? You don’t know. You learnt about it from a Bronze Age book that claims truth for itself. And at your parents’ knee. Is that where your outrageous certainty comes from?
- Richard Dawkins: The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
- Mark Twain: I do not fear death, in view of the fact that I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.
