I will be taking a reduced role at Atheist Nexus as of Oct 1, 2017.  I will not be moderating this group after that time, and I will be re-zeroing most of my groups and comments.

If there are quotations that you wish to save, I recommend that you save them now.

Since this is a popular group, I recommend that a member start up a new group for quotations, so that the members can continue adding and reading their favorite quotes.

Thanks and happy reading!

Very good article Bertold.

Good one, Daniel.  Here's another, same vein:

"The man who masters himself is delivered from the force that binds all creatures."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Most people would rather be certain they’re miserable, than risk being happy.

Religion is the off switch of the human mind

Steve Pavlina

[from an entertaining article titled 10 Reasons You Should Never Have a Religion]

I regard monotheism as the greatest disaster ever to befall the human race. I see no good in Judaism, Christianity, or Islam -- good people, yes, but any religion based on a single, well, frenzied and virulent god, is not as useful to the human race as, say, Confucianism, which is not a religion but an ethical and educational system.
-- Gore Vidal

I very much like the distinction which Vidal brings to this statement, in separating people from the god and dogma some of them have created. And it is, indeed, a disaster, and one which will require a great deal of blood and treasure to get us shut of it.

We are all slaves to our histories. If there is to be a ... bright future, we must learn to break those chains.
-- Mimbari Ambassador Delenn, Babylon 5

Mira Furlan as Delenn brought a wonderful quality to that series, and never more so than with the above lines.

. . . you have likely come across more bullshit so far this week than a normal person living 1,000 years ago would in their entire lifetime.


--Gordon Pennycook

Good quote, Gary!

Despotic power is always accompanied by corruption of morality.
