Have a Blasphemous Day!

If your religion can’t stand up to historical scrutiny, your religion sucks.

If your religious founder was a charlatan, your founder sucks.

If you react violently to any disagreement with your “faith”, you suck.

It’s about time that the faithful give a little thought to what they have been taught,

because it’s quite obvious to some of us that it’s all wrong.

When an old and distinguished person speaks to you, listen to him carefully and with respect – but do not believe him. Never put your trust in anything but your own intellect. Your elder, no matter whether he has gray hair or has lost his hair, no matter whether he is a Nobel Laureate, may be wrong. The world progresses, year by year, century by century, as the members of the younger generation find out what was wrong among the things that their elders said. So you must always be skeptical – always think for yourself.” Linus Pauling (1954 Stockholm)
