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
Faith in God is optional, but faith in the self
Abhijit Naskar
Religion without reason is merely an illusion of religion
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
If poverty defines greatness, then become the poorest person on earth, in terms of weakness and bigotry. And if wealth defines glory, then become the wealthiest person on earth, in terms of courage, confidence and reasoning.
Abhijit Naskar
Faith in God is optional, but faith in the self
Abhijit Naskar
Blind faith is not real religion my friend.
Abhijit Naskar
Being a fool is a billion times better than being blinded by the illusion of intellect.
Abhijit Naskar
A sex worker deserves a billion times more respect, than the mystical fraudsters of the society, such as astrologers, psychics and tarot card readers.
Abhijit Naskar
I have a little moral trouble with the term mankind, as it possesses an innate gender bias, which I cannot approve of, hence, I prefer the term humanity over it, and the term human over man.
Abhijit Naskar
Psychics, astrology, tarot cards - all these mystical non-sense are signs of a weak mind. Whenever such garbage starts grabbing hold of you, seek the help of a physician or therapist.
Abhijit Naskar
Progress of the human society is predicated upon the proper functioning of a key element of the human mind, that is reasoning.
Abhijit Naskar
Faith in God is optional, but faith in the self
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 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
Keep in mind my friend, if an answer is not rational, then it is not an answer, but a delusion.
Abhijit Naskar
No Lord Almighty created the humans out of personal will. Creationism is simply a myth created by the weak and ignorant humans out of a psychological need to have a sense of eternal security.
Abhijit Naskar
There is only one ideal in the world, which is, the light of knowledge
Abhijit Naskar
Changing the spelling of one's name to ensure success, performing rituals for good luck, wearing colored gem stones for success in business
Abhijit Naskar
Common people tend to term any kind of bizarre phenomenon as paranormal or supernatural. They often exaggerate it as the work of the Gods. Behind this belief is nothing but primitive ignorance. Social progress means that people must (a necessity, not a luxury) align their beliefs and behavior to new knowledge and understanding of nature.
Abhijit Naskar
When you don't have explanation for a certain phenomenon, as a real human, you should suspend judgement, instead of concocting supernatural explanations out of ignorance and primordial fanaticism.
Abhijit Naskar
Rationality attracts conscientious humans, whereas mysticism attracts fools.
Abhijit Naskar
Any scripture that demands irrefutable obedience must be discarded at once.
Abhijit Naskar
Faith in God is optional, but faith in the self
Abhijit Naskar
Make films that purify the soul with the flow of rational, vigorous and compassionate thinking.
Abhijit Naskar
It is an utter insult towards the fascinating neurons of your cerebral cortex, to believe anybody's words blindly, even if that person is a Scientist or a Philosopher. So, I urge to you, that you must exercise your own reasoning and judgment (that's what your cerebral cortex is for; to be specific the frontal lobes) at all times.
Abhijit Naskar
No Quran, no Bible, no Gita, no Cow, is greater than the human self.
Abhijit Naskar
It is all about the trade of ignorance. And India is such a bronze-age nation that is filled with these trades (astrology, palm reading, vastushashtra and others).
Abhijit Naskar
It is better to be foolish than a dilettante.
Abhijit Naskar
The greatest Church is within you, and it is made of love, courage and conscience.
Abhijit Naskar
Have faith in yourself. Have faith in the human first, then God if you want.
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 purpose of a scientist is not to present blunt facts to the people. It is to present the facts in a manner that's most suitable and beneficial for the whole humanity.
Abhijit Naskar
Mystics reign where lacks true education.
Abhijit Naskar
Modern society is modern because of its mental cocktail of reasoning and compassion. Turn the compassion network in the brain off, and it will be a society of heartless robots. On the other hand, turn the reasoning network off, and it will be a society of dumb sentimental apes.
Abhijit Naskar
Faith in God is optional, but faith in the self
Abhijit Naskar
I am a scientist, and as such I am proud to say that being stupid at times is a very human thing. Be proud to be stupid, be proud to be fool. Being a fool is a billion times better than being blinded by the illusion of intellect. I admit I am a fool, but at the very least, with each passing day I do my best to get lesser fool.

I see you better in music, I hear you better in wind, I feel you more in a flooding moonlight, that understands nothing, but darkness and silence.
Auliq-Ice
As many ideas you can generate, encourage them to form nests in your mind, for one will surely liberate you.
Auliq-Ice
Thinking makes man to be god & GOD to dwell in Man.

The SECRET to unravelling Life's MYSTERIES is thinking.
Benjamin Wiker
Like Aristotle, conservatives generally accept the world as it is; they distrust the politics of abstract reason
Christina Engela
I can understand backward patriarchal reasoning coming from a male, but from a woman - and of all people, a leader of women? It says something profound about leadership - and, if anything - what it says about followers is not very flattering at all.
David Hume
In our reasonings concerning matter of fact, there are all imaginable degrees of assurance, from the highest certainty to the lowest species of moral evidence. A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence.
Drexel Deal
Out of all the other gangs that were around, you could always have come to the reasoning table of the Rebellions without being fearful and present your case, and whatever is decided at the reasoning table you know that is what it will be, whether it's war or peace. Unlike the other gangs that were around, you didn't even know who to talk to. Scrooge, former leader of the Rebellion Raiders street gang that once boasted of having some ten thousand members

Elizabeth Gaskell
I'll not listen to reason... reason always means what someone else has got to say.
Elizabeth Gaskell
Thus, you see, he arrived at the same end, via supposed duty, that he was previously pledged to via interest. I fancy a good number of us, when any line of action will promote our own interest, can make ourselves believe that reasons exist which compel us to it as a duty.
Elon Musk
I think it's important to reason from first principles rather than by analogy. The normal way we conduct our lives is we reason by analogy. [With analogy] we are doing this because it's like something else that was done, or it is like what other people are doing. [With first principles] you boil things down to the most fundamental truths…and then reason up from there.
Galileo Galilei
In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
Gift Gugu Mona
It is reasonable to reason with God because when you only rely on human reasoning, you will be diverted from your purpose.
Hasse Jerner
Facts and science without the presence of wisdom and reason are worth a little less than nothing, while wisdom and reason without the presence of facts and science are worth far more than people without wisdom and reason are capable to expect.
Hector Avalos
By Hays' reasoning, penetrating a rectum with a penis is a violation of how God meant humans to function. However, penetrating a human body with a sword, a common way to kill people in biblical times, is acceptable. Apparently human bodies were designed to be penetrated by metal implements, but not by flesh.
Imran Bughio
When you leave reasoning & start believing than nothing is reasonable & everything is believable.
Jean Renoir
The truly terrible thing is that everybody has their reasons.
Julian Jaynes
Logic is the science of the justification of conclusions we have reached by natural reasoning. My point is that, for such natural reasoning to occur, consciousness is not necessary. The very reason we need logic at all is because most reasoning is not conscious at all.
Kemi Sogunle
Learn the truth...never assume.Understand the plight...never judge.Put yourself in someone's shoes...never hurt.Think before you act, reason before you react.
Margaret Mead
Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.
Miguel Queah
Rhetoric abounds in the cemeteries of reason.
Raheel Farooq
Intelligence seeks reasons behind things. Wisdom looks for things behind reasons.
Richard Mitchell
Training is a good dog, a constant companion and an utterly loyal and devoted friend, and everyone should have one. Education is a nagging counselor. And, I am convinced, everyone does have one. It happens, however, that some nagging counselors have grown strong by a certain kind of nourishment. Others are weak and puny, even infantile, having never been nourished at all.
Richard Mitchell
Here is a truth that most teachers will not tell you, even if they know it: Good training is a continual friend and a solace; it helps you now, and assures you of help in the future. Good education is a continual pain in the neck, and assures you always of more of the same.
Robert M. Pirsig
Now we've a real intellectual impasse. Our reason, which is supposed to make things more intelligible, seems to be making them less intelligible, and when reason thus defeats its own purpose something has to be changed in the structure of our reason itself.
Robin McKinley
As I have said, you have no reason to trust me, and an excellent reason not to.

Your mind can be your enemy or friend. If you always follow your heart, your mind will feel neglected. If you follow only your mind, your heart will never forgive you. Never ignore your conscience, yet always be conscious of reason. Make your heart and mind friends and you will have peace of mind throughout life's seasons.
Suzy Kassem
Empathy nurtures wisdom. Apathy cultivates ignorance.
Suzy Kassem
If achieving world peace and ending poverty were really genuine concerns to the majority, then they would have happened already by now. So, either people are not aware of their collective power, or their fears overpower their desires. The amount of money spent on the military-industrial complex in one year is more than enough to end hunger in Africa. Every problem on earth today has more than one solution. However, priorities are determined by values.
Suzy Kassem
You are not just for the right or left, but for what is right over the wrong.
Tarif Naaz
I don't understand how can people hold faith and reasoning in the same head. To my understanding, faith, like love, is blind.
Veronica Roth
Human reason can excuse any evil.
