Stephen Hawking
“There is a fundamental difference between religion, which is based on authority, and science, which is based on observation and reason. Science will win because it works.”
Stephen Hawking

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

Amit Ray
“Be brave. Be free from philosophies, prophets and holy lies. Go deep into your feelings and explore the mystery of your body, mind and soul. You will find the truth.”
Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations

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

Arthur C. Clarke
“Finally, I would like to assure my many Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, and Muslim friends that I am sincerely happy that the religion which Chance has given you has contributed to your peace of mind (and often, as Western medical science now reluctantly admits, to your physical well-being). Perhaps it is better to be un-sane and happy, than sane and un-happy. But it is the best of all to be sane and happy. Whether our descendants can achieve that goal will be the greatest challenge of the future. Indeed, it may well decide whether we have any future.”
Arthur C. Clarke, 3001: The Final Odyssey

“Science and Truth are simple phenomenon of nature, but it is the known that is preventing us from mastering the unknown.”
Chandrakanth Natekar

“As a citizen of the world, I will not confine myself within the gates of one nation or religion. I will not identify with only one species, sex, class or race; for I am a complete being, and that means that I embrace all of humanity, all of nature, every star and universe within the greater universe as a part of me. If we were all created in the image of God, and his love is unconditional, then why can't we love all living things with the same eyes as God? How can anybody say that one race is more superior than another, when we were all created in God's reflection?”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Abhijit Naskar
“The problem is not religion or God. The actual problem is authoritarianism, mixed with the desire to angrily impose one’s personal apparently idealistic beliefs on others.”
Abhijit Naskar

محمد عمارة
“العقل هو السبيل الوحيد لإدراك الألوهية واليقين بها”
محمد عمارة

Paul Kalanithi
“To make science the arbiter of metaphysics is to banish not only God from the world but also love, hate, meaning”
Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air

Abhijit Naskar
“If to a person religion means reading books and obeying every single word from it without the slightest bit of reasoning, then such perception would only bring destruction upon the person and the world. Also there are people who use the words from those books to justify their own filthy actions. Let’s take a conservative Muslim, for example. Say, the conservative Muslim male Homo sapiens (I won’t call such creature a human, regardless of the religion, since his action here shows no sign of humanity) is found to be beating his wife. Now, if someone says to him “this is wrong”, he would naturally reply, “this is a divine thing to do, my book says so”. Now, if a Christian says “my book is older, so you should stop obeying your book and start obeying mine”, there will come the Buddhist, and say, “my book is much older still, obey mine”. Then will come the Jew, and say, “my book is even older, so just follow mine”. And in the end will come the Hindu and say “my books are the oldest of all, obey them”. Therefore referring to books will only make a mess of the human race and tear the species into pieces.”

“Quite surprisingly the majority of religious and spiritual practices actually diminishes your brain’s ability to act out of rage and fear.”
Abhijit Naskar

Venkatraman Ramakrishnan
“A Culture based on superstitions will do worse than one based on scientific knowledge and rational thoughts”
Venkatraman Ramakrishnan

“Priesthood, Imamhood, Pundithood often come hand in hand with tyranny.”
Abhijit Naskar

“Addiction is the primary way people escape the modern world. Unfortunately, it is destroying the modern world.”
Christyl Rivers

Abhijit Naskar
“If you don’t act now, the day is not far, that this beautiful planet of yours, which you call home, shall be turned into a dry barren wasteland by the blood-sucking fundamentalists.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“There has been more bloodshed in the name of God than for any other cause. And it is all because people never attempt to reach the fountain-head. They are content only to comply with the customs of their forefathers, and want others to do the same.”
Abhijit Naskar, In Search of Divinity: Journey to The Kingdom of Conscience

Abhijit Naskar
“Good and evil are both within us. And when our primitive ancestors humanized these natural qualities of the mind, they got two completely opposite supernatural characters. One was the merciful lord almighty and the other was the wicked devil.”
Abhijit Naskar

Abhijit Naskar
“Current research in any field of Science has not yet reached the point where we could start exploring the existential question regarding God as a Supreme Entity driving causality in the universe. However, as modern Neuroscience progresses further and gets more advanced, we shall get to dive deeper into the physiological processes underneath the Qualia of God in human mind. What we have seen so far through our studies in Neurotheology, is that it is not God himself/herself/itself, rather it is people’s perception of God that influences the human life. The Qualia of God impact all aspects of human life by altering the body chemistry at a cellular level.”
Abhijit Naskar, What is Mind?

Abhijit Naskar
“Pathology can indeed evoke experiences of Absolute Godliness, but not all God experiences are caused by pathology. They can also occur due to disturbance in the geomagnetic field of our planet, consumption of psychedelics, excruciatingly extreme level of stress during a near- death situation, or ultimately through a natural and healthy procedure of meditation or/and prayer.”
Abhijit Naskar, Love, God & Neurons: Memoir of a scientist who found himself by getting lost

Robert K. Wilcox
“The burden of proof is now on the doubters.”
Robert K. Wilcox, The Truth About the Shroud of Turin: Solving the Mystery

Abhijit Naskar
“Real atheist is not the one that does not believe in an imaginary big monkey, but the one that gives the imagination more importance than the reality.”
Abhijit Naskar, Illusion of Religion: A Treatise on Religious Fundamentalism

Dan Brown
“Наука і релігія - не конкуренти, це дві різні мови, які говорять про те саме. У світі є місце для них обох.”
Dan Brown, Origin
