|What They Opined...|
|John Burroughs||Man is, and always has been, a maker of gods.|
|Arthur C Clarke||Perhaps our role on this planet is not to worship God, but to create Him.|
|Albert Einstein||Morality is of the highest importance to Men -- but not for God.|
|Epicurus (341-270BC)||If God listened to the prayers of men, all men would quickly have perished. For they are always praying for evil against each other.|
|Betty Sue Flowers||God is a holding place for everything we don't understand.|
|Robert Frost|| I turned to speak to God
About the world's despair;
But to make bad matters worse
I found God wasn't there.
| Epicurus' old questions
are yet unanswered. Is God unwilling to prevent evil, but not
able? Then he is impotent. Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then
what is evil?
Webmaster's Note: Many authors have written mysteries about a rich man inviting guests to his private island, locking them out, and hunting them down for sport. Are we His angels with temporary amnesia just to enjoy this game with Him, or are we simply His stupid toys?
|Robert G Ingersoll (1833-1899)||Those who love God are not always the friends of their fellow-men.|
|Dave Matthews||If there is a God, a caring God, then we have to figure that he has done an extraordinary job of making a very cruel world.|
|W Somerset Maugham|| What mean and cruel
things men can do for the love of God!
I cannot believe in a God who has neither humor or common sense.
|Mignon McLaughlin||Most sermons sound to me like commercials -- but I can't make out whether God is the Sponsor or the Product.|
|H L Mencken|| God is the immemorial
refuge for the incompetent, the helpless, the miserable. They
find not only sanctuary in His arms, but also a kind of superiority,
soothing to their macerated egos: He will set them above their
CREATOR -- A comedian whose audience is afraid to laugh.
|Montesquieu||If triangles made a God, they would give him three sides.|
|Napoleon||[Fear of God] is what keeps the poor from killing the rich.|
|Stephen Henry Roberts||I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do.|
|Gene Rodenberry||If this is your god, he's not very impressive. He has so many psychological problems. He's so insecure. He demands worship every seven days. He goes out and creates faulty humans, and then blames them for His own mistakes. He's is a pretty poor excuse for a Supreme Being.|
|Bertrand Russell||And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence.|
|Percy Bysshe Shelly||If [God] is everywhere, why erect temples for him?|
|Homer Simpson (cartoon character)||God bless all those pagans.|

been mighty good to your fields, Mr Farmer.
FARMER: You should have seen how He treated them I wasn't aroud.
|Walt Whitman||There is no God any more divine than Yourself.|
|Frank Lloyd Wright||I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.|
