Oh irony,how sweet!
I have been rereading some old books on my shelf, I recently started "the age of fable" by Thomas Bulfinch.

I don't know how I missed this the first time but, I just wanted to share this incredible sentence. I think I have found no greater ironic statement then the one found on the first page of chapter 2 : Prometheus and Pandora

"The creation of the world is a problem naturally fitted to excite the liveliest of man, its inhabitant. The ancient pagans, not having the information on the subject which we derive from the pages of Scripture, had their own way of telling story, which is a follows:"

How could a man that spent a great deal of his life learning about the mythology of other cultures not see the flaws of his own? I don't know but it does not bode well for those of us that hope to change the minds of our religious brethren.

"It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness; that is life." - Captain Jean Luc Picard

"If we're going to be damned, let's be damned for what we really are." - Captain Jean Luc Picard
