  • Materialism isn’t a substitute for humanism, rather it is only a subtopic such as are pleasure, health, and security.


  • “Free Will” is the theological equivalent of a gravity free universe.


  • If we accept the existence of God, how is that we aren’t also simultaneously acknowledging that God is great? It is impossible to contemplate that God exists but is not great. Only by assuming the nonexistence of God, can God be assumed to be non-great, since that assumption exists only in the mind of non-great entities called humans.


  • Moralists are the kind of people who would ponder the question as to whether angels have dandruff.


  • Those that envy often seek to destroy the envied. This is also true of members of religions where those of another religion seem to be favored by God. Many of those of that religion, who envy, will seek the destruction of the envied, no matter how such acts violate the precepts of their own religion. It is clear that with some, their envy is stronger than their love for God.


  • The difference between faith and superstition is only a matter of context.


  • Religions’ strongest arguing point lies in the fact that God is easy to contend, and impossible to disprove.


  • Those who behave only because of their fear of God may be undeserving of God.


  • If we always “Trust in God”, it remains for us to guess “To do what?”


  • Never apply reason to religion, nor take a saw into a petrified forest.


  • When many seek the unknowable, they often invent the imaginary that they then will call reality.


  • It is easier to get others to accept an attractive myth than an unattractive truth.


  • Much of what was known by faith has been shown to be false. Much of what was known by faith has been shown to be true. We should expect nothing different of tomorrow.


  • That the meek shall inherit the Earth will be a questionable reward after it has been plundered and polluted by the bold.


  • WALT HASKINS
