Religion - Quotes


No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

Nelson Mandela

Religion, like poetry, is simply a concerted effort to deny the most obvious realities.

Henry Louis Mencken

Each religion, so dear to those whose life it sanctifies, and fulfilling so necessary a function in the society that has adopted it, necessarily contradicts every other religion, and probably contradicts itself.

George Santayana

Religion is like drugs, it destroys the thinking mind.

George Carlin

If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again.

Penn Jillette

God has no religion.

Mahatma Gandhi

The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

In science it often happens that scientists say, "You know that`s a really good argument; my position is mistaken", and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn`t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

Carl Sagan

There are many sources of spirituality; religion may be the most common, but it is by no means the only. Anything that generates a sense of awe may be a source of spirituality. Science does this in spades.

Michael Shermer

If humans were inclined to goodness, religion would not be necessary.

Steve Maraboli

One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion. So now people assume that religion and morality have a necessary connection. But the basis of morality is really very simple and doesn`t require religion at all.

Arthur Charles Clarke

Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion - several of them.

Mark Twain

Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep insights can be winnowed from deep nonsense.

Carl Sagan

The history of science is riddled with abject failures of scientific objectivity. But that is just the point-these have been failures of science, discovered and corrected by-what, religion? No, by good science.

Sam Harris

We must respect the other fellow`s religion but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.

Henry Louis Mencken
