"No great mind has ever existed without a touch of madness." - Aristotle


The more brilliant people I meet, the more this rings true, and there are countless good examples of it right here on TTA forum.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

"Let me give you some advice, bastard: never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you." - Tyrion Lannister

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

It reminds me of 'better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.'

Not entirely convinced of that though but ok! Rolleyes Laugh out load

A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true.

Demosthenes.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Mikhail Bakunin.

Stendhal is one of my all time favourite authors. I love this quote from him.

"God's only excuse is that he does not exist”
― Stendhal

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: Great quotes
Here's a less philosobull quote, but a great one none the less.

One of the things that we end up doing when we're defending atheism, is we end up talking about morality. We end up talking about how can someone be moral without God. How can someone be moral without a supreme being looking over them for reward and punishment. Their always talking about that morality and can we have it without God.
One of my favourite questions when I talk to religious groups, I get it every time, and I wait for it, because I have an answer for it: They will stand up and they will ask "If there is no God, what stops you from raping and killing everyone you want to rape and kill? What stops you from doing that?"
And my answer is: You're absolutely right. I have raped and killed every single person I want to rape and kill. AND THE NUMBER IS ZERO, YOU EVIL MOTHER FUCKER. IT'S ZERO. IT'S A GOOSE EGG. AND IF YOUR NUMBER IS A POSITIVE INTEGER, SIGN UP FOR JAIL, GET THE FUCK OUT OF OUR SOCIETY.

- Penn Jillette

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
"Anti-environmentalism is like standing in front of a forest and going 'quick kill them they're coming right for us!'" - Jake Farr-Wharton, The Imaginary Friend Show.
