“Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”

–Steven Weinberg (winner 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics), address to the AAAS Conference on Cosmic Design, Washington, D.C. , April 1999

“Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.”

–Blaise Pascal, quoted in The Heretic’s Handbook of Quotations
