  • The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion. — Thomas Paine
  • The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. — George Bernard Shaw

And here is one conclusion – by Daniel Miessler whose rather interesting blog I discovered with a little help (thanks John! 🙂 ) –

  1. Religion is based on absolute fantasy.
  2. Yes, it helps people through altered perception of the world, but so do three glasses of wine.
