“Our gods, if we choose to believe in them, must be forced to live up to ethics that far surpass our own human standards. If they fall short of the ethical conditions we place upon ourselves, what use are they to us - except to rationalize our own failures?”
Stifyn Emrys

“The most dangerous aspect of religion is its tendency to glorify the absurd and justify the abhorrent.”
Stifyn Emrys

“Obsoletes and absolutes are the stock in trade of religions that place their faith in an 'unchanging' god while faced with the reality of an ever-changing world.”
Stifyn Emrys, Requiem for a Phantom God

“The most dangerous aspect of religion is its tendency to glorify the absurd and justify the abhorrent.”
