“It was Nietzsche who told us God was dead, but he would be laughing in his grave if he knew how many are still heaving over the corpse,
frantically trying to revive it.”
agm  Andy Mulcahy

“The feeling of awed wonder that science can give us is one of the highest experiences of which the human psyche is capable. It is a deep aesthetic passion to rank with the finest that music and poetry can deliver. It is truly one of the things that make life worth living and it does so, if anything, more effectively if it convinces us that the time we have for living is quite finite.”
— Richard Dawkins, Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite for Wonder (1998), p. x., quoted from Victor J. Stenger, Has Science Found God? (2001)

“Nothing could be more grotesquely unjust than a code of morals, reinforced by laws, which relieves men from responsibility for irregular sex acts and for the same sex acts drives women to abortion, infanticide, prostitution and self-destruction.”
Susan La Follette 1893-1938

“The foundation of all morality is to have done, once and for all,
with lying; to give up pretending to believe that for which there
is no evidence, and repeating unintelligible propositions about
things beyond the possibilities of knowledge.”
— Thomas Henry Huxley, British biologist

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead

“A scientist seeks information so that he can ask better questions of the universe. The fool, in turn, seeks information that best corroborates his preconceived answer.”
Agm  Andy Mulcahy

“Men never do evil so completely — and cheerfully — as when they do it from religious conviction.”                                                                           Blaise Pascal

“I have little confidence in any enterprise or business or investment that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.”

Robert G. Ingersoll

“Let us help and support one another, for we are
on our own in this vast, uncaring universe.”
Agm   Andy Mulcahy

“I do not feel obliged to believe that same God who endowed us with
sense, reason, and intellect had intended for us to forego their use.”
Galileo

“Many people would rather die than think; in fact, most do.”

Bertrand Russell

“The Bible and the Church have been the greatest stumbling blocks in
the way of women’s emancipation.”

Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Free Thought Magazine, 1896

“Life is but a momentary glimpse at the wonder of this astonishing Universe and it is sad to see so many dreaming it away on spiritual fantasies.”
agm     Andy Mulcahy

“I was brought up to believe that the only thing worth doing was to add to the sum of accurate information in the world.”
Margaret Mead

“The Christian religion not only was at first attended with miracles,
but even at this day cannot be believed by any reasonable person without one.”

David Hume

“Though science has long since pulled the plug on religion’s life support system, the patient still has convulsions and will not die easily.”
