Pike The great God Ra whose shrine once covered acres is filler now for crossword puzzles. -- Kieth Preston I've steered clear of god. He was an incredible sadist. -- John Collier Herein we see God's great mercy.... for the slaughter was in all 5,517, but ten of the enemies side were slain to one of ours.

Anatole France Clergymen: a ticket speculator outside the gates of heaven. H.L.Menken We need a new cosmology. New Gods. New Sacraments. Another drink.
