Xenophanes - But if cattle and horses and lions had hands
or could paint with their hands and create works such as men do,
horses like horses and cattle like cattle

"I think it's better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that.

"I don't know what that says to you, but to me it says that following these faiths based on mythological figures ensures the destruction of one's inner being.

"Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored." -- Aldous Huxley
"He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave." -- William Drummond

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken!" -- Colonel Sanders
