 Something to Think About
Archive Quotes

"Fundamentalism" might have been revived even if the Great War had not occurred. But it is reasonable to suppose that it would have not assumed such an intolerant and vituperative form, if so many educated men, in positions of leadership, had not deliberately cultivated resort to bitter intolerance and to coercive suppression of disliked opinions during the war... Until highly respectable and cultivated classes of men cease to suppose that in economic and political matters the importance of the end of social stability and security justifies the use of means other than those of reason, the intellectual habit of the public will continue to be corrupted at the root, and by those from whom enlightenment should be expected.

--John Dewey (Science, Belief, and the Public, 1924)

Religion & History


The Dark Bible
  The Bible describes God as wrathful, jealous and scatological. These quotes show the pornographic, atrocious, and questionable moral verses from the KJV Bible.


Should we admire Jesus?
  Does the character Jesus in the Gospels merit the admiration that so many have bestowed upon him? The Bible's own words throw doubt on the workable morality of the alleged Jesus "the Christ."


Did a historical Jesus exist?
  Did a historical Jesus actually live? All accounts of him come from hearsay writings, non-contemporary sources, forgeries, and beliefs. No good evidence exists for the god-man.


Martin Luther's dirty little book
  Few Protestants realize the venom and hatred that Martin Luther spewed toward the Jews. In 1543, Luther wrote a book titled "On the Jews and their lies."


Problems with Creationism
  A refutation to an argument from Design from a Christian Creationist. Inconsistencies derived from illogic, faith and a lack of evidence have produced an unworkable hypothesis about a universe invented by a Designer (God).


Hitler's Christianity

Thomas Jefferson on Christianity

The United States of America is not, in any sense founded on the Christian religion
  Religious Right groups have dishonestly attempted to rewrite history by claiming the U.S. government derived from Christianity. This simply does not hold to the historical evidence. Example: the Treaty of Tripoli explicitly reveals, in a lawful document, the intentions of our Founding Fathers.


History to consider
  U.S. currency originally never used the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST." The original Pledge of Allegiance never mentioned "God." How the Christians stole Christmas and Easter, and more.
