In Religion Quotes
When we debunk a fanatical faith or prejudice, we do not strike at the root of fanaticism. We merely prevent its leaking out at a certain point, with the likely result that it will leak out at some other point. Thus by denigrating prevailing beliefs and loyalties, the militant man of words unwittingly creates in the disillusioned masses a hunger for faith. For the majority of people cannot endure the barrenness and futility of their lives unless they have some ardent dedication, or some passionate pursuit in which they can lose themselves. Thus, in spite of himself, the scoffing man of words becomes the precursor of a new faith.

In Religion Quotes
Various kinds of ideas can be classified by their relationship to the authentication process. There are ideas systematically prepared for authentication (theories), ideas not derived from any systematic process (visions), ideas which could not survive any reasonable authentication process (illusions), ideas which exempt themselves from any authentication process (myths), ideas which have already passed authentication processes (facts), as well as ideas known to have failed- or certain to fail- such processes (falsehoods - both mistakes and lies).

In Religion Quotes
In man's life, the absence of an essential component usually leads to the adoption of a substitute. The substitute is usually embraced with vehemence and extremism, for we have to convince ourselves that what we took as second choice is the best there ever was. Thus blind faith is to a considerable extent a substitute for the lost faith in ourselves; insatiable desire a substitute for hope; accumulation a substitute for growth; fervent hustling a substitute for purposeful action; and pride a substitute for an unattainable self-respect.

In Religion Quotes
The devil personifies not the nature that is around us but the nature that is within us- the infinitely ferocious and cunning prehuman creature that is still within us, sealed in the subconscious cellars of the psyche.

As each movement of the second hand eventually moves the hour
hand, so every mantra on a Hindu japamala or Buddhist prayer wheel, every mindful prayer on a Catholic rosary, every call to
prayer in a mosque has spiritual power.

In Religion Quotes
Some ancient religions have become so overlaid with extraneous
matter that their spiritual essence has become almost completely
obscured by it.
