Excellent Penn Jillette quote.  So true.

Comment by Loren Miller 2 hours ago

If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again.
― Penn Jillette

This is what happens when something is based on NOTHING, as opposed to something based in REALITY.

Comment by Loren Miller yesterday

I'll tell you what you did with Atheists for about 1500 years. You outlawed them from the universities or any teaching careers, besmirched their reputations, banned or burned their books or their writings of any kind, drove them into exile, humiliated them, seized their properties, arrested them for blasphemy. You dehumanized them with beatings and exquisite torture, gouged out their eyes, slit their tongues, stretched, crushed, or broke their limbs, tore off their breasts if they were women, crushed their scrotums if they were men, imprisoned them, stabbed them, disemboweled them, hanged them, burnt them alive.

And you have nerve enough to complain to me that I laugh at you.
― Madalyn Murray O'Hair

SING IT, Madalyn!

Comment by Joan Denoo yesterday

Thanks to a previous quote posted by Bertold Brautigan on December 17, 2015 at 6:10pm

. . . if theism facilitates hate, terrorism, and reinforces bad behavior with a false morality, then how can a moral person be apathetic toward religion? How can one not care that we, as a society and as a species, are being endangered in real ways because people are too reverent to the liars and victims who run religion out of nothing more than tradition and political correctness?

--David Silverman, Fighting God

Comment by Loren Miller on Saturday

The difference between faith and insanity is that faith is the ability to hold firmly to a conclusion that is incompatible with the evidence, whereas insanity is the ability to hold firmly to a conclusion that is incompatible with the evidence.
― William Harwood

Ummm ... Bill?  Where's the difference?!? [chuckle!]

Comment by Loren Miller on Friday

I feel that we should stop wasting our time trying to please the supernatural and concentrate on improving the welfare of human beings. I think that, uh, we should use our energy and our initiative to solve our problems, and stop relying on prayer and wishful thinking. If we have faith in ourselves, we won't have to have faith in gods.
― Ruth Hurmence Green

I would quibble about the word, "faith," because I want a substantial REASON to trust people.  In any case, I do not trust those things which don't exist!

Comment by Plinius on Friday

I love that one, Carl!

@ Loren: Sorry about that; you get a snowflake pass for the rest of the week.

Nice one, Carl.

We gotta start teaching our daughters to be somebodies instead of somebody’s. -- Kifah Shah

Naughty, naughty Bertold!  You triggered me again!

You have a right to your own opinions, but you do not have a right to your own facts. [emphasis mine]
-- Daniel Patrick Moynahan
