Quote of the Day 4-18-16 (Marie Castle)

“Most religions have been and are started by nonbelievers–atheists, technically speaking, but basically con artists–‘faithless men who use the faith and belief of others to steal from them with lies.’ They have no functioning moral compass and they hurt people, unlike most self-identified atheists whose atheism is a morally sound, well thought out conclusion. You don’t need a god to have a heart, and neither do you need one if you are heartless. However, as physicist Steven Weinberg says, if you have a heart, it takes a religion to enable you to be heartless.”

–Marie Alena Castle, “Understanding Atheism: What It Is, What Works, What Doesn’t, What Might” in the March-April 2016 issue of The Moral Atheist, published by Atheists for Human Rights

    Religion for the people, religion for the masses, religion for the barges, religion for the crashes. Religion for the seafarers, Religion for the cold. Religion for the unsought. Religion for the bold. Each in time. Each in rhyme, forgetting what made him want by finding what finding might find in finding worth in the jaunt.
