    Religion ends and philosophy begins, just as alchemy ends and chemistry begins and astrology ends, and astronomy begins.

    Before I came to MW, I didn't really understand that there were atheists who believed in supernatural beings other than a god. I find it tricky to get my head around sometimes.

    The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

I therefore have no choice but to find something suspect even in the humblest believer. Even the most humane and compassionate of the monotheisms and polytheisms are complicit in this quiet and irrational authoritarianism: they proclaim us, in Fulke Greville's unforgettable line, "Created sick Commanded to be well." And there are totalitarian insinuations to back this up if its appeal should fail. Christians, for example, declare me redeemed by a human sacrifice that occurred thousands of years before I was born. I didn't ask for it, and would willingly have foregone it, but there it is: I'm claimed and saved whether I wish it or not. And if I refuse the unsolicited gift? Well, there are still some vague mutterings about an eternity of torment for my ingratitude. That is somewhat worse than a Big Brother state, because there could be no hope of its eventually passing away."

    Oh this ^ one's just awesome.
