The Thinking That Inspires Us
“A wise man proportions his belief to the evidence.” — Scottish philosopher David Hume
“It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry.” — U.S. Founding Father Thomas Paine
“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who endowed us with sense, reason and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” — Galileo
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” — Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
“If the Old Testament were a reliable guide in the matter of capital punishment, half the people in the United States would have to be killed tomorrow.” — TV personality and skeptic Steve Allen
“Beliefs are what divide people. Doubt unites them.” — Actor, humanist and Renaissance man Peter Ustinov
