Quote of the Day


This about this for a moment… or 50.
Now think about how that affects your life and how it should affect your life. The simple statement that where there is fact, we do not speak of faith.

Originally posted on Walking Upright Citizen's Brigade:

 “Where there is evidence, no one speaks of “faith”. We do not speak of faith that two and two are four or that the earth is round. We only speak of faith when we wish to substitute emotion for evidence.”

Bertrand RussellHuman Society in Ethics and Politics[6], London: G. Allen & Unwin, 1954, LCCN 54004060OL 14246427M

    Very true indeed. And it’s amusing to note that people still make the argument about faith today, when Russell answered it so well in 1954

    • If WLC can make a living making a failed argument I suppose normal believers can continue to make failed arguments
