 Something to Think About
Archive Quotes

It doesn't seem to me that this fantastically marvelous universe, this tremendous range in time and space and different kinds of animals, and all the different plants, and all these atoms with all their motions and so on, all this complicated thing can merely be a stage so that God can watch human beings struggle for good and evil - which is the view that religion has. The stage is too big for the drama. So I believe its not the right picture.

--Richard P. Feynman (Perfectly Reasonable Deviations, from the "Beaten Track")

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

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.
