980) In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.

981) Two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity.
Friedrich Nietzsche The Twilight of the Idols (1888) [B16]
982) The Christian resolution to find the world ugly and bad has made the world ugly and bad.

983) Wherever there are walls I shall inscribe this eternal accusation against Christianity upon them - I can write in letters that make even the blind see [...] I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty - I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind [...]
Friedrich Nietzsche The Anti-Christ (1895) [CQ]
984) God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.
Friedrich Nietzsche The Gay Science (1882) [B16]
985) We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.
Jonathan Swift Thoughts on Various Subjects (1711) [ODQ] posted by Kevin Harris [UAQ] (5/31/95)
986) Religion is a monumental chapter in the history of human egotism.
William James The Varieties of Religious Experience (1902) Kevin Harris [UAQ] (5/31/95)
987) All religions are founded on the fear of the many and the cleverness of the few.
Stendhal (Marie-Henri Beyle) (widely attributed) quoted in The Cassell Dictionary of Insulting Quotations Jonathan Green, editor posted by Kevin Harris [UAQ] (5/31/95)
988) History does not record anywhere at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it.

Note: "3089/898" is the designation I've given to the project of posting all my collected quotes, excerpts and ideas (3089 of them) in the remaining days of the Bush administration (of which there were 898 left when I began). As of today, there are 609 days remaining in the administration of the worst American President ever.

If you read unfutz at least once a week, without fail, your teeth will be whiter and your love life more satisfying.
If you read it daily, I will come to your house, kiss you on the forehead, bathe your feet, and cook pancakes for you, with yummy syrup and everything.
(You might want to keep a watch on me, though, just to avoid the syrup ending up on your feet and the pancakes on your forehead.)
Finally, on a more mundane level, since I don't believe that anyone actually reads this stuff, I make this offer: I'll give five bucks to the first person who contacts me and asks for it -- and, believe me, right now five bucks might as well be five hundred, so this is no trivial offer.
