RE: Favorite House of Cantor Quotes
Here's a great metaphor for what it means to be an atheist:


We're all at Mickey D's discussing the transcendental cheeseburger when a
crew trainee falls into the fryolator. BOOM! Back room's blazing; what
do we do?



What we don't do is go to Burger King, nor Starbucks, nor home. First,
we get the fuck out. All atheism is, is getting the fuck out.



Class dismissed.

An arrogant, self-important psychopath disguised as an arrogant, self-important psychopath? Why, that's brilliant... not.
Psychopaths like you give psychopaths like me a bad name.

Maybe we can string some of these together into Cantorian Chants. Yes

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Favorite House of Cantor Quotes
The first of the Cantorian Chants, believed to be one of the earliest works, the melody was scrawled on a coffee-stained bit of paper. While the topic seems particularly Cantorian, it lacks the wit and word count of later works, it's origin remains contested.

There was a variant text found on a small scrap of papyri from a 1st century Codex in Alexandria, decades before any other preserved documents, hence more likely to have a higher validity. In this much older fragment the more accurate translation is "Gwwwwwyyyyyynnnniiiieeeess, kneeeeeelllll beeeeefooooore Jooooooohhhhnnnnnnyyyyyyy's Jiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmmmmmmmy!!!!!!!!

However, I sorta beg to differ - it is only when you know squat that you can know everything. At least everything you want to know. Which is squat... Hmm, I seem to have given myself a headache...
