When circumstances pour the minds of some young helpless individuals with hatred and rage towards the society, and when that pain, hatred, and rage become unbearable, they turn to the scriptures as the final resort, in a pursuit to find absolution, guided by the psychopathic, misogynistic, genocidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent, fundamentalist preachers.

If a person takes comfort in his or her faith upon divinity in times of distress, then who the hell am I to say, that the person is delusional.
Abhijit Naskar
In most cases, people argue over the term God, without having the perception of another person's own idea of the word. Hence, often people with an atheistic perspective of the world attribute the God of many religious individuals to be an angry, authoritarian and vengeful God who acts like a human being and lives in the clouds or in heaven. But the irony is, most religious individuals do not conceive God in an anthropomorphic or angry way. Rather, in their personal psychological domain of religious or spiritual beliefs, they conceive God in more abstract, spiritual and merciful way.

Liberty is my religion and Humans are my God.
Abhijit Naskar
The poor, the illiterate, the helpless, the distressed
Abhijit Naskar
Blind faith is not real religion my friend.
Abhijit Naskar
Dare to contradict the scientist, not because of your scripture, but because of your own rational thinking.
Abhijit Naskar
The greatest Church is within you, and it is made of love, courage and conscience.
Abhijit Naskar
A Christian sits in his or her well and thinks that the whole world is his or her well. The Jew sits in his or her little well and thinks that it is the whole world. A Muslim sits cooped up in his or her tiny well and believes it to be the whole universe. The same goes for a Hindu and all others. Also, atheists are no different from all those orthodox believers.
Abhijit Naskar
Experience, derived from scientific investigation, led to all the scientific literature in history. Likewise, experience, derived from religious transcendence, led to all the religious scriptures in history. It's never the other way around.
Abhijit Naskar
Acceptance is religion, sectarianism is blasphemy.
Abhijit Naskar
In the hands of thinking humanity, the purpose of the tool of Divinity or Religion is not the service of bookish doctrines, but the realization of the self.
Abhijit Naskar
All religions are mere echoes of this one great religion of Humanism.
Abhijit Naskar
Christ the man died long ago, but Christ the idea of love, still exists, not in any church, rather in the mind of humans.
Abhijit Naskar
Belief is indeed psychologically important for the human mind of general population, but that belief should be nicely compatible with scientific reasoning, otherwise that belief turns into prejudice, which is never beneficial to the human life.
Abhijit Naskar
Religion is an experience, not a bunch of doctrines.
Abhijit Naskar
Humanism is the purest expression of your soul as a human. It has no God to be concerned with, except for the living Gods, that is the humans. It has no doctrine to abide by, except for the natural doctrine of love and benevolence. That's the religion we need my friend.
Abhijit Naskar
Without even knowing, humanity actually worships not an Entity, rather a mental state.
Abhijit Naskar
The moment the religious population of the world begins to see the prophets what they really were - mortal teachers of the mortal world, a great portion of the world's religious conflicts shall vanish into thin air.
Abhijit Naskar
Due to the monstrous activity of a handful of extremists, the majority of the human society has been conditioned to believe that the term 'musalman' is somehow synonymous with terrorism. But the reality is, the term 'musalman' refers to someone with 'musallam iman,' that means, a pure conscience. Thus any individual whose conscience is pure and clear, is a musalman or muslim, regardless of socio-religious background. Likewise, any human being who loves his or her neighbor is a Christian. Hence, scriptures can't define your religion, only your actions with other people do.
Abhijit Naskar
One who does not believe in the self is an atheist. If you believe in yourself, then you are the most religious person on earth.
Abhijit Naskar
When the mind is without fear and prejudice, and the head is held high with the strength of reasoning, then only the brightest rays of religion can penetrate the darkest corners of the human society.
Abhijit Naskar
The same Sermon on the Mount that influenced Tolstoy to write The Kingdom of God is Within You, inspired me to a great extent in my work Principia Humanitas.
Abhijit Naskar
Real religion does not mean Gods - it does not mean Angels and Demons - it does not mean miracles of healing. Real religion is all about you and your fellow humans. There is nothing else.
Abhijit Naskar
Science works through replication, rectification and modification. But when it comes to religion, people simply tend to accept the theoretical preachers and their claims of historical God experiences without a single question. If there has been one experience in this world in any branch of knowledge, it absolutely follows that that experience will be repeated eternally. If they are not repeated through natural processes, the thinking humanity would have no way but to disprove that such an experience ever occurred in the history.
Abhijit Naskar
People fight over religion, because they don't understand religion. They think reading a few Bibles, Qurans and Vedas makes them religious. Books are not religion my friend. Real religion is realization of the Self.
Abhijit Naskar
The world needs the kind of religion that sets humanity free, not the kind that binds it with textual fanaticism. The world needs the kind of religion that humanizes the society, not the kind that dehumanizes it.
Abhijit Naskar
If you want to consume the cream of Christ's philosophy, then don't read the Bible, read Tolstoy.
Abhijit Naskar
It has always been science versus fundamentalism, not science versus religion.
Abhijit Naskar
Religion without reason is merely an illusion of religion
Abhijit Naskar
My Sikh sisters and brothers proclaim with utter glory and faith Jo Bole So Nihaal, Sat Sri Akaal, I say Jo Anubhava So Nihaal, Sat Sri Akaal. My translation of the former is He who utters 'Great Eternal Truth' becomes joyous, while the latter translates to He who experiences 'Great Eternal Truth' becomes joyous.
Abhijit Naskar
Religious fundamentalism advocates homophobia, misogyny, xenophobia, polygamy and many other primitive evils. Can you imagine, somebody telling you, your love for your dearly beloved is a sin! Can you imagine, somebody telling you, women are inferior to men, and are meant only serve the men! Can you imagine, somebody telling you, a man can have multiple wives, and yet be deemed civilized! Here that somebody is a fundamentalist
Abhijit Naskar
There has been more bloodshed in the name of God than for any other cause. And it is all because people never attempt to reach the fountain-head. They are content only to comply with the customs of their forefathers, and want others to do the same.
Abhijit Naskar
Any scripture that demands irrefutable obedience must be discarded at once.
Abhijit Naskar
Scriptures are meant to serve humanity, not humanity to serve scriptures.

Say, you teach a five year old child a few verses from the Bible. And after memorizing them, he will become a part scholar in Christian theology. But that won't make him realize what Jesus actually meant when he said 'love thy neighbor'.

If you take each step, as if it was your last. You would appreciate the world in all its glory and bask in the glory of god for in his wisdom he created us and the universe all around us.

God believes in you. So why don't you?
Anthony T. Hincks
Dad? Jesus asked.Yes, son? God replied.Do we look like man or does he look like us? Jesus asked.Man made god in his image, God said.Why? Jesus asked.Because it's easier to believe in someone and something if it looks like you or is a symbolic representation of you, God answered.If that's true. What do we look like then? Jesus asked.God smiled, We look like everything.Jesus laughed, Could I look like a giraffe then?Yes, if the giraffe believes in you, God laughed.Jesus smiled and had tears of joy in his eyes.
Anthony T. Hincks
A smile is the key to the gate of heaven and love is the road which will get you there.

Dad? Jesus said.Yes son. What is it? God replied.Why have you left the stars turned on. It's night time, Jesus asked.It's so that people can find their way home, God said.What do you mean? Jesus asked his dad.Well God started to say, sometimes a person loses their way in life and when that happens all they have to do is look up at the stars and then they will find their way back home to me.But, what about if it's daytime and there are no stars? Jesus now asked.Then, I will send them a rainbow to show them the way, God told his son.

I don't have to touch God to know that he's real.

Dad? Jesus asked.Yes, son? God asked.Why do people get sick? Jesus asked.When they live, life is all about learning so that when the are ready, they can join us here, God said.But, doesn't it hurt? Jesus asked.Yes, it does. But, to learn about life you have to learn of pain and suffering or else you don't learn what life is all about, God said.Will I suffer like that one day? Jesus now asked his dad.Yes, because we all have to learn, and that includes me too, God replied sadly.

Buddha lets me see the world in color so that I can appreciate its color.Just as God too lets you see the color of beauty in the world.And so too with Allah because he lets you see the beauty in everything.....I cannot begin to understand all religions, but I know one thing.Color brings love into our world regardless of who we are; what we preach or what we believe in.And to me, that is the only truth that I know.
Anthony T. Hincks
The beauty of God, is God himself.
Anthony T. Hincks
Dad? Jesus asked.Yes, son? God asked.Why are people so scared of dying? Jesus asked.Because they believe that they only get one life and then they die, God said.But dad, nothing ever dies, Jesus said.You know that and I know that, but sadly, they don't know that, God said and the two of them then looked down towards the Earth.
Anthony T. Hincks
Dad? Jesus asked.Yes son? God replied.Why does man have so many religions? Jesus asked.It's because they all have different beliefs, God said.Why? Jesus asked.It's because they have a free mind. It's up to them to choose what they wish to believe in, God said.But, what if they forget about you? Jesus asked his dad.God replied, Even though they may forget about me, they will always remember me. Would you ever forget me? God asked.Never! said Jesus, How could I ever forget my father?Exactly! And so it is for them, God added.
Anthony T. Hincks
The beauty of having faith, is that no matter what the time of day, whether it be day or night I know that someone is always there with me to give me comfort.It doesn't matter whether it is Buddha, God or Allah because whoever it is, is special to each of us. And that is the beauty of having faith.

Dharma is not about believing in God. It's about making the right choices, doing the right things and leading the right life.

Belief is a wonderful way to pass the time until the facts come in.

All creation necessarily ends in this: Creators, powerless, fleeing from the things they have wrought.

Everybody dies. Including your messiahs. And gods.
John Stuart Mill
It is a bitter thought, how different a thing the Christianity of the world might have been, if the Christian faith had been adopted as the religion of the empire under the auspices of Marcus Aurelius instead of those of Constantine.
Kai Nielsen
There is no religious language or scientific language. There is rather the international notation of mathematics and logic; and English, French, Spanish and the like. In short, religious discourse and scientific discourse are part of the same overall conceptual structure. Moreover, in that conceptual structure there is a large amount of discourse, which is neither religious nor scientific, that is constantly being utilized by both the religious man and the scientist when they make religious and scientific claims. In short, they share a number of key categories.

The sweetness of prayer is the prosperity of the soul.
Linda Wells~Harr
We do not have to believe something is right- to believe a person has a right to choose it. God doesn't force us to serve him. It is a freewill choice we make, so why in the name of all that is holy and right do we think we can force other people to live by our particular brand of religion? We are commanded to Love if we are Christ servers.
