Isaac Newton
“Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who sets the planets in motion.”
Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton
“This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.”
Isaac Newton, The Principia: Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy

Brandon Sanderson
“Ignorance is hardly unusual, Miss Davar. The longer I live, the more I come to realize that it is the natural state of the human mind. There are many who will strive to defend its sanctity and then expect you to be impressed with their efforts.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

Isaac Newton
“How came the bodies of animals to be contrived with so much art, and for what ends were their several parts?
Was the eye contrived without skill in Opticks, and the ear without knowledge of sounds?...and these things being rightly dispatch’d, does it not appear from phænomena that there is a Being incorporeal, living, intelligent...?”
Isaac Newton, Opticks

Isaac Newton
“Blind metaphysical necessity, which is certainly the same always and every where, could produce no variety of things. All that diversity of natural things which we find suited to different times and places could arise from nothing but the ideas and will of a Being, necessarily existing.”
Isaac Newton, The Principia: Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy

Nikola Tesla
“Science is opposed to theological dogmas because science is founded on fact. To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end. The human being is no exception to the natural order. Man, like the universe, is a machine. Nothing enters our minds or determines our actions which is not directly or indirectly a response to stimuli beating upon our sense organs from without. Owing to the similarity of our construction and the sameness of our environment, we respond in like manner to similar stimuli, and from the concordance of our reactions, understanding is born. In the course of ages, mechanisms of infinite complexity are developed, but what we call 'soul' or 'spirit,' is nothing more than the sum of the functionings of the body. When this functioning ceases, the 'soul' or the 'spirit' ceases likewise.

I expressed these ideas long before the behaviorists, led by Pavlov in Russia and by Watson in the United States, proclaimed their new psychology. This apparently mechanistic conception is not antagonistic to an ethical conception of life.”
Nikola Tesla, Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla

Amit Ray
“Science is observing truth in the light of head. Religion is observing truth in the light of heart. Humanity is using both the lights. And education is developing that humanity.”
Amit Ray

Dan Brown
“…Our sunsets have been reduced to wavelengths and frequencies. The complexities of the universe have been shredded into mathematical equations. Even our self-worth as human beings has been destroyed.”
Dan Brown, Angels & Demons

H.L. Mencken
“It is the natural tendency of the ignorant to believe what is not true. In order to overcome that tendency it is not sufficient to exhibit the true; it is also necessary to expose and denounce the false. To admit that the false has any standing in court, that it ought to be handled gently because millions of morons cherish it and thousands of quacks make their livings propagating it—to admit this, as the more fatuous of the reconcilers of science and religion inevitably do, is to abandon a just cause to its enemies, cravenly and without excuse.”
H.L. Mencken, American Mercury

David Bentley Hart
“Lest we forget, the birth of modern physics and cosmology was achieved by Galileo, Kepler and Newton breaking free not from the close confining prison of faith (all three were believing Christians, of one sort or another) but from the enormous burden of the millennial authority of Aristotelian science. The scientific revolution of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries was not a revival of Hellenistic science but its final defeat.”
David Bentley Hart, Atheist Delusions: The Christian Revolution and Its Fashionable Enemies

Frank Olvera
“The assumption of no God cannot be proven by science.”
Frank Olvera, Under the Thelián Sky: Beyond the Great Unknown

Abhijit Naskar
“Humans are not simply higher than Gods, Gods are mere mystical representations of the humans themselves.”
Abhijit Naskar, Principia Humanitas

Abhijit Naskar
“Nanak’s encounter of God and God’s court was in fact a profound hallucinatory Near-Death Experience caused by drowning that strengthened his pre-conceived notion of a rational, compassionate and unorthodox society.”
Abhijit Naskar, Neurons, Oxygen & Nanak

Abhijit Naskar
“Imagine the ancient society of India, and in fact all over the world, a few thousands years ago. In those days, rational thinking was quite scarce. Ignorance was the default mode of thinking. Only a handful of individuals were capable of higher intellectual thinking.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“All religions are mere echoes of this one great religion of Humanism.”
Abhijit Naskar, Neurons, Oxygen & Nanak

Abhijit Naskar
“A being with no faith in the human self is a being with no spirit of life, regardless of how many Fathers or Holy Spirits or Sons it believes in.”
Abhijit Naskar, Principia Humanitas

Abhijit Naskar
“In a society of thinking humanity, it should always be, humans first, and then Gods, Krishna or otherwise.”
Abhijit Naskar, The Krishna Cancer

Abhijit Naskar
“The sacred texts of human history from all over the world, can never be perceived by the rational mind as texts of historical accuracy. They can only be a glaring representation of the traditions and ideals of the people. Now, it is up to the rational mind, to analyze those texts and thereafter consume the good elements from them, while discarding the rest.”
Abhijit Naskar, Rowdy Buddha: The First Sapiens

“It is said that science demystifies nature, but scientists on the frontier are awed by the elegance and harmony of nature.”
Daniel C. Matt, God and the Big Bang, 2nd Ed.: Discovering Harmony between Science and Spirituality

“What science shows us about the evolution of our universe and ourselves is as awe-inspiring as the accounts in Genesis or the Kabbalah.”
Daniel C. Matt, God and the Big Bang, 2nd Ed.: Discovering Harmony between Science and Spirituality

Joey Lawsin
“Unless SETI can find an earth-like environment in other planets; its purpose to find intelligent beings means nothing but failure. The Caveman in the Box.”
Joey Lawsin

“I blindly believe that the many unanswered questions, that we have yet to discover, are not on this planet.”
Efrat Cybulkiewicz

Abhijit Naskar
“People fight over religion, because they don't understand religion. They think reading a few Bibles, Qurans and Vedas makes them religious. Books are not religion my friend. Real religion is realization of the Self.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“The moment the religious population of the world begins to see the prophets what they really were - mortal teachers of the mortal world, a great portion of the world's religious conflicts shall vanish into thin air.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“No Lord Almighty created the humans out of personal will. Creationism is simply a myth created by the weak and ignorant humans out of a psychological need to have a sense of eternal security.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism
