"Belief means not wanting to know what is true."

"Heresies are experiments in man’s unsatisfied search for truth."

"The truth is that Christian theology, like every other theology, is not

only opposed to the scientific spirit; it is also opposed to all other

attempts at rational thinking. Not by accident does Genesis 3 make the

father of knowledge a serpent -- slimy, sneaking and abominable. Since

the earliest days the church as an organization has thrown itself

violently against every effort to liberate the body and mind of man.

It has been, at all times and everywhere, the habitual and incorrigible

defender of bad governments, bad laws, bad social theories, bad

institutions. It was, for centuries, an apologist for slavery, as it

was the apologist for the divine right of kings."

-- H. L. Mencken

(1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic
