In a world dominated by magical thinking, superstition and misinformation, give yourself the benefit of doubt. This is one skeptic's view of the Universe.
"Tell people there’s an invisible man in the sky who created the universe, and the vast majority believe you. Tell them the paint is wet, and they have to touch it to be sure."
“If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed”.
“Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense.”
The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species. It may be a long farewell, but it has begun and, like all farewells, should not be protracted.
Bill O’Reilly, July 9, on The O’Reilly Factor.
Erik Wemple of WaPo says it best, “Good point, O’Reilly. Back in 1972, a media organization never would have produced and aired a four-minute segment that resembled a presidential campaign attack ad.”
Thanks Bill. Your most honest statement in a while.(via thereisnogod)
Bill O’Reilly, on the “liberal media’s” reporting that Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring-Breivik is a Christian.
Conservative Christians have the right idea, because you know what Jesus really said was “give nothing to your brother, you are not his keeper, do not love thy neighbor as thyself, Christianity is the only true religion, white heterosexuals shall inherit the earth.”
Do we have to talk about “no true Scotsman” again?(via goodreasonnews)
So much facepalm…
Bill O’Reilly (Fox News, 7/21/11)
Stay classy Billo.
