Thought for the Day

“The liberation of the human mind has never been furthered by such learned dunderheads [priests and pedants]; it has been furthered by merry fellows who heaved dead cats into sanctuaries and then went roistering down the highways of the world, proving to all men that doubt, after all, was safe — that the god in the sanctuary was finite in his power, and hence a fraud. One horse-laugh is worth ten thousand syllogisms. It is not only more effective; it is also vastly more intelligent.”
– H L Mencken –
