The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

RE: Great quotes
We have heard talk enough. We have listened to all the drowsy, idea-less,
vapid sermons that we wish to hear. We have read your Bible and the works
of your best minds. We have heard your prayers, your solemn groans and your
reverential amens. All these amount to less than nothing.
We want one fact. We beg at the doors of your churches for just one little fact.
We pass our hats along your pews and under your pulpits and implore you for just one fact.
We know all about your mouldy wonders and your stale miracles. We want a this year's fact.
We ask only one. Give us one fact for charity. Your miracles are too ancient.
The witnesses have been dead for nearly two thousand years.
-- Robert Green Ingersoll

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

RE: Great quotes
Just noticed your sig, it is more like "Every silver lining ends up in a cloud and then death". Some would call that fatalistic and pessimistic. What is wrong with the reality of saying "I got lucky and sometimes I have good times and I will enjoy the ride while it lasts even though I know it will end".

'then death,' you added that part. lol Hmmm... I'm not pessimistic, but rather realistic. I guess I've always lived my life with holding my breath when good things are happening, for surely the other shoe will drop soon enough. (and it often has dropped) Sad
