If you genuinely loved God, wouldn`t you want to understand him as best you can? When faced with different ideas about God, wouldn`t you want to ask some questions, and look at the supporting evidence for the different views, and try to figure out which one is probably true? Doesn`t it seem insulting to God to treat that question as if it didn`t matter? There are profound differences between religions. They are not trivial. And the different religions cannot all be right. (Although, as atheists like to point out, they can all be wrong.)

Greta Christina

When you look at the history of what we know about the world, you see a noticeable pattern. Natural explanations of things have been replacing supernatural explanations of them. Like a steamroller. Why the Sun rises and sets. Where thunder and lightning come from. Why people get sick. Why people look like their parents. How the complexity of life came into being. I could go on and on. All these things were once explained by religion. But as we understood the world better, and learned to observe it more carefully, the explanations based on religion were replaced by ones based on physical cause and effect. Consistently. Thoroughly. Like a steamroller.

Greta Christina

Why does God need arguments, anyway? Why does God need people to make his arguments for him? Why can`t he just reveal his true self, clearly and unequivocally, and settle the question once and for all? If God existed, why wouldn`t it just be obvious?

Adam Levine

I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn`t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.

Roger Ebert

When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future.

Dian Fossey

People think because I can make them laugh on the stage, I`ll be able to make them laugh in person. That isn`t the case at all.

All that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae.

Paul Walker

For a biologist the alternative to thinking in evolutionary terms is not to think at all.

Peter Medawar

From the sun coming up to the sun going down
Every breath we breathe in and breathe out
Blessings are given as we are living for Jesus
He`s the beginning and He is the end
He will be faithful again and again
We give Him praise for all the ways He loves us.

Moriah Peters

If I got locked away
And we lost it all today
Tell me honestly, would you still love me the same?
If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn`t be strong
Tell me honestly, would you still love me the same?

Rock City

If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is a compromise.

Robert Fritz

I had all the fame anyone could want, and I ran away from it.

Macaulay Culkin

The dumbest people I know are those who know it all.

Malcolm Forbes

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for, in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.
