Robert Ingersoll

We have at last ascertained that miracles can be perfectly understood; that there is nothing mysterious about them; that they are simply transparent falsehoods.More Robert Ingersoll quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Progress is born of doubt and inquiry. The Church never doubts, never inquires. To doubt is heresy, to inquire is to admit that you do not know—the Church does neither.More Robert Ingersoll quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am simply in favor of intellectual hospitality-that is all. You come to me with a new idea. I invite you into the house. Let us see what you have. Let us talk it over. If I do not like your thought, I will bid it a polite "good day." If I do like it, I will say: "Sit down; stay with me, and become a part of the intellectual wealth of my world."More Robert Ingersoll quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The only thing that makes life endurable in this world is human love, and yet, according to Christianity, that is the very thing that we are not to have in the other world. We are to be so taken up with Jesus and angels, that we shall care nothing about our brothers and sisters that have been damned. We shall be so carried away with the music of the harp that we shall not even hear the wail of father and mother. Such a religion is a disgrace to human nature.More Robert Ingersoll quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
With their backs to the sunrise they worship the night.More Robert Ingersoll quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
