Joseph Campbell - Myths

"God is a metaphor for a mystery that absolutely transcends all human categories of thought, even the categories of being and non-being. Those are categories of thought. I mean it's as simple as that. So it depends on how much you want to think about it. Whether it's doing you any good. Whether it is putting you in touch with the mystery that's the ground of your own being. If it isn't, well, it's a lie. So half the people in the world are religious people who think that their metaphors are facts. Those are what we call theists. The other half are people who know that the metaphors are not facts. And so, they're lies. Those are the atheists."

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it -
even if I have said it - unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."

- The Buddha

"I may disagree with everything you say, but will defend unto death your right to say it."
- Voltaire
