    Only a rookie who knows nothing about science would say
    science takes away from faith. if u really study science, it will
    bring you closer to God.

    There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love. -- Rumi

    There is a fountain inside you. Don't walk around with an empty bucket. --Rumi

    Out beyond ideas of wrong and right, there is a field. I will meet you there. -- Rumi


    I looked upon every Cross, in every church,
    yet He was not there.
    I went to the temples of India
    and the shrines of China
    yet He was not there.
    I searched the mountains of Herat and Candalar
    yet He was not there.
    I scaled the distant peak of Mount Qaf
    only to find
    the empty nest of the Phoenix.
    I visited the Ka’be
    but He was not in that tourist site
    amidst the pilgrims young and old.
    I read the books of Avicenna
    but His wisdom went beyond all the words.
    I went to the highest court,
    within the distance of “two-bow lengths,”
    yet He was not there.
    Then I looked within my own heart
    and there I found Him-
    He was nowhere else.

    A very long one, but probably one of Hitchens finest debate moments:

    "Staying in Africa, I think it will one day be admitted with shame that it might have been in error to say that AIDS is bad as a disease, very bad, but not quite as bad as condoms are bad, or not as immoral in the same way. I say it in the presence of His Grace, and I say it to his face, the teachings of his church are responsible for the death and suffering and misery of his brother and sister Africans, and he should apologise for it, he should show some shame. For condemning my friend Stephen Fry for his nature, for saying "you couldn’t be a member of our church, you’re born in sin". He’s not being condemned for what he does, he’s being condemned for what he is. You’re a child made in the image of God – "oh no, you’re not, you’re a faggot, and you can’t join our church and you can’t go to heaven". This is disgraceful, it’s inhuman, it’s obscene, and it comes from a clutch of hysterical, sinister virgins, who’ve already betrayed their charge in the children of their own church. For shame! For shame!"

    "Starships were meant to fly" - Nicki Minaj

    Because before that I had no idea that starships could fly, and after studying the matter intensively and spending money on research, this is in fact correct. Totally blows my mind. So thoughtful and deep.

    My high school science teacher once told me that Genesis was false.
    But since my high school science teacher did not prove he was God by
    rising from the dead Im going to believe Jesus instead.
    -Andy Stanley

    If one person were to prove this God of the Christians to us,
    we should be even less able to believe him. It is our preference
    that decides against Christianity, not arguements.
