Religious - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

Don`t blindly believe what I say. Don`t believe me because others convince you of my words. Don`t believe anything you see, read, or hear from others, whether of authority, religious teachers or texts. Don`t rely on logic alone, nor speculation. Don`t infer or be deceived by appearances. Do not give up your authority and follow blindly the will of others. This way will lead to only delusion. Discover for yourself what is truth, what is real.

Buddha

Watch out for people who call themselves religious; make sure you know what they mean - make sure they know what they mean!

John Irving

Religious structure often dilutes the spiritual experience.

Steve Maraboli

Myths, whether in written or visual form, serve a vital role of asking unanswerable questions and providing unquestionable answers. Most of us, most of the time, have a low tolerance for ambiguity and uncertainty. We want to reduce the cognitive dissonance of not knowing by filling the gaps with answers. Traditionally, religious myths have served that role, but today - the age of science - science fiction is our mythology.

Michael Shermer

People believe in God because we are pattern-seeking, storytelling, mythmaking, religious, moral animals.

Michael Shermer

People are never so completely and enthusiastically evil as when they act out of religious conviction.

Umberto Eco

Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion - several of them.

Mark Twain

I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious theories of heaven and hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God.

Thomas Edison

True, you don't have to be religious to be crazy, but it helps.

Daniel Dennett

If history and science have taught us anything, it is that passion and desire are not the same as truth. The human mind evolved to believe in the gods. It did not evolve to believe in biology. Acceptance of the supernatural conveyed a great advantage throughout prehistory, when the brain was evolving. Thus it is in sharp contrast to biology, which was developed as a product of the modern age and is not underwritten by genetic algorithms. The uncomfortable truth is that the two beliefs are not factually compatible. As a result those who hunger for both intellectual and religious truth will never acquire both in full measure.

Edward O. Wilson

No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful.

Kurt Vonnegut

Faith is a great thing, and really religious people would like us to believe that faith and knowing are the same thing, but I don`t believe that myself. Because there are too many different ideas on the subject.

Stephen King
