    "Have you made your peace with God?" "I wasnt aware I had a quarrel with him..." Henry Thoreau.

    This one resonates with me.

    The people (religion) selling me a solution are the ones claiming that I have a problem (sin). Does something not seem right about that?

    This one, Paula:

    In some awful, strange, paradoxical way, atheists tend to take religion more seriously than the practitioners. Jonathan Miller.

    (except, of course, when the practitioners are Jehovah's Witnesses)

    One of my favourite quotes on the subject:

    Religious distress is at the same time the expression of real distress and the protest against real distress. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people. (I'm sure I don't have to tell you who said it).

    Yes Nickolas, your quote strikes a chord........but I dont think I knew it as well as I thought I did.....always thought it was "opium of the masses..."

    All the quotes were taken from a website called "The Quote Garden" Sorry, cant post a link. Lots of interesting topics about life, love, relationships, children, jokes etc......

    I'm chuckling at a few of them (including the one Was mentioned).

    This one resonates with me:

    A man without religion is like a horse without a bridle. Latin Proverb

    I like that one. Christ DID come to set us free from the burdens that the 'religion and religious leaders' weighed the people down with.

    I love Bertrand Russell's take in the final quote in your post.

    May I share one of my favorites? This is from Sam Harris' book 'The End of Faith':

    "Whatever their imagined source, the doctrines of modern religions are no more tenable than those which, for lack of adherents were cast upon the scrap heap of mythology millennia ago: for there is no more evidence to justify a belief in the literal existence of Yahweh and Satan than there was to keep Zeus perched upon his mountain throne or Poseidon churning the seas."

    In fact, if I may add - it makes more sense to worship Zeus and tremble at Poseidon, for these God's are 'older' than the Judeo/Christian versions of God, if you track the roots. At least this is the argument that many of religion use about the Bible/God/Jesus - their relative age to that of our modern society should compell us to believe in them.
