Next Time You Hear Pascal's Wager...

Men never commit evil so fully and joyfully as when they do it for religious convictions

Atheism isn't a lot like religion at all. Unless by "religion" you mean "not religion". --Ciarin

"You are taking that statement out of context!!"

Favorite oxymorons: Gospel Truth, Rational Supernaturalist, Business Ethics, Christian Morality

"Theology is now little more than a branch of human ignorance. Indeed, it is ignorance with wings." - Sam Harris

The path to Truth lies via careful study of reality, not the dreams of our fallible minds - me

From the sublime to the ridiculous: Science -> Philosophy -> Theology
