Quote of the Day by Phasespace

What I reject are the claims made by the people who claim to speak for God. I reject the notion that you know what you are talking about. I reject the notion that you or anyone else has any sort of connection to such a being. I reject the notion that the existence of a god of some kind is self-evident. This is a far cry from rejecting the actual being, if it exists. The evidence suggests and is much more parsimonious with the conclusion that religion is an attempt to understand the world and our place in it, before we understood how to understand. Or at least before discovering more reliable methods for attempting to do so.
