Comment by Loren Miller yesterday

Be sure to lie to your kids about the benevolent, all-seeing Santa Claus. It will prepare them for an adulthood of believing in God.
― Scott Dikkers

Just love the snark on this one!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner yesterday

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

Martin Luther King Jr.
This expresses the core of meaning and morality for me.
Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner yesterday
Attacking science is attacking democracy. Denying Science is denying democracy. Rejecting science is rejecting democracy.

Shawn Otto, author of the 2016 book, The War on Science

All great quotes, folks! Thanks.

Comment by Joan Denoo yesterday

“The new education must teach the individual how to classify and reclassify information, how to evaluate its veracity, how to change categories when necessary, how to move from the concrete to the abstract and back, how to look at problems from a new direction—how to teach himself. Tomorrow’s illiterate will not be the man who can’t read; he will be the man who has not learned how to learn.

Psychologist Herbert Gerjuoy of the Human Resources Research Organization 

Quoted by Alvin Toffler in Future Shock. (The book’s notes state that “Gerjuoy’s comments are from an interview with the author”.)

The purpose of literature is to turn blood into ink.
— T. S. Eliot

Comment by Gary S on Sunday

Just to add one more science quote

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust.

- Dr. Lawrence Krauss

Comment by Gary S on Sunday

It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.

- Albert Einstein

Comment by Loren Miller on Sunday

I believe the simplest explanation is, there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization that there probably is no heaven and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe and for that, I am extremely grateful.
― Stephen Hawking

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on Sunday

Good Sam Harris quote and Sagan too, Loren.

That Native American Proverb is perfect, Joan! 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on Sunday

“Preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.” - Carl Sagan
