Life was a funny thing that happened to me on the way to the grave.
There are some real beauties posted here!

I've found out the truth ... about 'the truth'
I like this snippet from Orwell's 1984
"Nothing is your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull"
and when family were berating me saying that I must be mad to reject the "body of truth" we had known all our lives as taught by the "men we all admired" ....Orwell also wrote :
"Being in a minority, even a minority of one does not make you mad.There was truth and there was untruth and if you cling to the truth even against the whole world - you were not mad"
It is easy to call on the devil, the difficulty is in watching him arrive.
"If you have to cheat to defend your beliefs, your beliefs don't deserve to be defended." :smirk:

"The Evolutionary model says that it is not necessary to assume the existence of anything, besides matter and energy, to produce life. That proposition is unscientific. We know perfectly well that if you leave matter to itself, it does not organize itself - in spite of all the efforts in recent years to prove that it does."
"The ancient Creationist Book says that it is not necessary to assume the existence of anything, besides energy, to produce God. That proposition is unscientific. We know perfectly well that if you leave energy to itself, it does not organize itself becoming omniscient and omnipotent - in spite of all the efforts in thousands of years to prove that it does."
I always cry a bit when people point at lack of evidence and supposed unscientific reasoning to plead in favor of any highly unscientific and unproven assumption that any God exists.
