❝I’m not bashing religion, in fact, physicists spend so little time thinking about god they don’t bother worrying whether they are atheists — god is simply an irrelevance to physics.❞ —Lawrence Krauss

Christopher Hitchens – Quote

❝Modern humans have existed approximately 100,000 years. Our species suffered and died, most of its children dying in childbirth. Most other people having a life expectancy of 25 years. Famine, struggle, bitterness, war, misery.. All of that for 98,000 years. Heaven watches with complete indifference and thinks “that’s enough of that, it’s time to intervene.” And the best way to do this would be by condemning someone (Jesus Christ, the son of god) to human sacrifice somewhere in the less literate part of the Middle East. Let’s not appeal to the Chinese, for example, where people can read and write and study evidence and have a civilization. Let’s go to the desert and have a revelation there. THIS IS NONSENSE!❞

-Christopher Hitchens

One of the greatest gifts…


❝One of the greatest gifts science has brought to the world is continuing elimination of the supernatural, and it was a lesson that my father passed on to me, that knowledge liberates mankind from superstition. We can live our lives without the constant fear that we have offended this or that deity who must be placated by incantation or sacrifice, or that we are at the mercy of devils or the Fates. With increasing knowledge, the intellectual darkness that surrounds us is illuminated and we learn more of the beauty and wonder of the natural world.❞
