Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful.
The world of the living contains enough marvels and mysteries as it is … I am too firm in my consciousness of the marvellous to be ever fascinated by the mere supernatural.
- Joseph Conrad
Thus the sum of things is ever being reviewed, and mortals dependent one upon another. Some nations increase, others diminish, and in a short space the generations of living creatures are changed and like runners pass on the torch of life.
The Christian god can easily be pictured as virtually the same god as the many ancient gods of past civilizations. The Christian god is a three headed monster; cruel, vengeful and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this raging, three headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites.
- Thomas Jefferson
If the gods listened to the prayers of men, all humankind would quickly perish since they constantly pray for many evils to befall one another.
Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a whiff of science or a dose of common sense.
