At its best, religion is a superfluous argument for doing what's right anyway. At its worst, it's everything that's wrong with the world.

"Ignorance is preferable to error; and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing, than he who believes what is wrong." - Thomas Jefferson (I know...a deist, but so beautiful a sentiment)

"It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so" - Mark Twain
It's not Jefferson's fault he was a deist... Even in those days, belief in 'something' woowoo was more or less necessary to operate in colonial America... Makes me wonder how many atheists stayed closeted throughout the bowels of history, in order to make change as deists or believers. I think it's harder to be a deist these days. We know enough through science now... People tend to either be fully deluded or not at all, in comparison...

"the fool says in his heart, there is no god; the wise man says it out loud" (unknown to me)

 

"The alleged short-cut to knowledge, which is faith, is only a short circuit destroying the mind." - Ayn Rand

God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent -- it says so right here on the label.  If you have a mind capable of believing all three of these divine attributes simultaneously, I have a wonderful bargain for you.  No checks, please.  Cash and in small bills.

A minister is one who prays publicly and preys privately
