"The most savage controversies are those about matters as to which there is no good evidence either way. Persecution is used in theology, not in arithmetic."
-- Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), British author, philosopher, "An Outline in Intellectual Rubbish," Unpopular Essays (1950)

That is a great quote, isn't it? I love Bertrand Russell. His "Why I Am Not a Christian" was the first book about atheism I ever read, and I still consider it to be one of my favorites.

Hey, I've been snooping around since you left your comment on my blog last night. You've got some good information on here. Is this a new blog? I don't see anything earlier than February.

I wanted to thank you for visiting my own blog and leaving your comment.

vjack - I wanted a blog name which expressed atheism in a poetic manner. I'm more of a Dawkins person myself, but Russell has far better quotes. Besides, it somehow reminds me of that other great atheist writer - Douglas Adams

noell - yes new blog, 10 days old today.
