" Phil — Just a quick note to encourage you to do the right thing and shoot yourself in the head. Don’t waste any more time, do it today. It is truly the greatest contribution to life that you will ever make. "
"Man can never have enough knowledge to explain the universe, and all of those answers are not intended to be found in the Bible. Do we need the Bible to show us the beauty of a flower, the elaborate dance of bees, the phases of the moon? Of course not, these things are here in our world for our observation, for us to learn about on our own.
Belief in the infallibility of man’s language and in culture’s memory, diminishes the meaning of the book and its stories. Leaving nothing for discovery or for understanding puts mankind on a pedestal, as if we could have perfect understanding. That perfect understanding requires us to be perfect as well, and we are not. We are both less and more than that.”
