H.L. Mencken on the Cosmos & Religion

"To sum up: One, the cosmos is a gigantic fly-wheel making 10,000 revolutions a minute. Two, man is a sick fly taking a dizzy ride on it. Three. Religion is the theory that the wheel was designed and set spinning to give him a ride."

"Imagine the Creator as a low comedian, and at once the world becomes explicable."

"We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart." H.L.Mencken
