Happy Birthday Col. Robert Green Ingersoll!



Here is the thing about potential...You either use your gift or your gift uses you. You are either a rocket or a bomb.

Tolerance is giving to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself.

RE: Happy Birthday Col. Robert Green Ingersoll!
The Declaration of Independence announces the sublime truth, that all power comes from the people. This was a denial, and the first denial of a nation, of the infamous dogma that God confers the right upon one man to govern others. It was the first grand assertion of the dignity of the human race. It declared the governed to be the source of power, and in fact denied the authority of any and all gods. Through the ages of slavery — through the weary centuries of the lash and chain, God was the acknowledged ruler of the world. To enthrone man, was to dethrone God.

Justice is the only worship.
Love is the only priest.
Ignorance is the only slavery.
Happiness is the only good.
The time to be happy is now,
The place to be happy is here,
The way to be happy is to make others so.
Wisdom is the Science of Happiness

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

“Reason, observation and experience--the Holy Trinity of science--have taught us that happiness is the only good; that the time to be happy is now, and the way to be happy is to make others so. This is enough for us. In this belief we are content to live and die. If by any possibility the existence of a power superior to, and independent of Nature shall be demonstrated, there will be time enough to kneel. Until then, let us stand erect.” (Robert G. Ingersoll, The Gods) Consider

Stirner would not have agreed with Ingersoll.

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.
