I wish that I had allowed more time to add many more fine thoughts from my friends. Trouble was that I prepared the bulk of the book of atheist quotations between 2000 and about 2014, and then other priorities (chiefly in academic archaeology, fieldwork and writing) took over.
Loren Miller, 14 November 2009, Atheist Nexus: "We live now in the age of science, methodology and logic, where rational thought is slowly but surely displacing superstition as the primary means of evaluating our reality, how it behaves and what we can do with it. The brand of "crossing your fingers" which Pascal's Wager represents has no place and is unsupportable by any form of rational analysis."
Re Quote of the Day: "Something which does not exist cannot help us, but chronic dependence on something which fails to exist does active harm to all of us." Loren C. Miller. From page 82, of the book "Q".
