Ninety-nine percent of everything that goes on in most Christian churches has nothing whatsoever to do with the actual religion. Intelligent people all notice this sooner or later, and they conclude that the entire one hundred percent is bullshit, which is why atheism is connected with being intelligent in people's minds.
― Neal Stephenson

Good one, Loren.

Comment by Loren Miller yesterday

I don’t know if God exists, but it would be better for his reputation if he didn’t.
--Jules Renard

No argument!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

A million million spermatozoa
All of them alive;
Out of their cataclysm but one poor Noah
Dare hope to survive.

And among that billion minus one
Might have chanced to be
Shakespeare, another Newton, a new Donne--
But the One was Me.

Shame to have ousted your betters thus,
Taking ark while the others remained outside!
Better for all of us, froward Homunculus,
If you'd quietly died!


-- Aldous Huxley (1920)

Comment by Grinning Cat yesterday

Yes! Anne Lamott famously quoted her "priest friend Tom":

“You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.”

Comment by Loren Miller yesterday

A corollary:

You know your god is man-made when he hates all the same people you do.
-- from Usenet

Comment by Grinning Cat yesterday

“The gods that we’ve made are exactly the gods you’d expect to be made by a species that’s about half a chromosome away from being chimpanzee.” -Christopher Hitchens (ihateallyourgods.tumblr.com)(click to enlarge)

Comment by Loren Miller on Friday

The philosophy of Atheism represents a concept of life without any metaphysical Beyond or Divine Regulator. It is the concept of an actual, real world with its liberating, expanding and beautifying possibilities, as against an unreal world, which, with its spirits, oracles, and mean contentment has kept humanity in helpless degradation.
― Emma Goldman

Aw, did I "trigger" the snowflake? Do you need a safe space?
