Excellent!
Say what you will about the sweet miracle of unquestioning faith, I consider a capacity for it terrifying and absolutely vile. — Kurt Vonnegut
"God... a being whose only definition is that he is beyond man's power to conceive." Rand
"The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly teaches
me to suspect that my own is also."
-- Mark Twain
Mark Twain is definitely the king of these!
