49,807.  Reason and Ignorance, the opposites of each other, influence the great bulk of mankind.  If either of these can be rendered sufficiently extensive in a country, the machinery of Government goes easily on.  Reason obeys itself; and Ignorance submits to whatever is dictated to it.  (Government & Reason & Ignorance)  Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man 1791

 

 

2,328.  He that rebels against reason is a real rebel, but he that in defence of reason rebels against tyranny has a better title to Defender of the Faith, than George the Third.  (Reason & Rebel & Tyranny & Faith)  Thomas Paine

 

 

59,008.  The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is reason.  (Error & Reason)  Thomas Paine

67,940.  Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.  (Common Sense & Belief & Reason)  Buddha

 

 

154.  I do not feel obliged to believe God endowed man with reason and intellect and intended for him to forgo their use.  (God & Intellect & Reason & Galileo)  Galileo Galilei

 

 

2,269.  In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.  (Science & Authority & Reason & Galileo)  Galileo Galilei

 

 

73,868.  Where the senses fail us, reason must step in.  (Senses & Reason & Galileo)  Galileo Galilei

 

 

235.  Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.  (God & Reason & Fear)  Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr 10th August 1787

 

 

2,335.  In a republican nation, whose citizens are to be led by reason and persuasion and not by force, the art of reasoning becomes of first importance.  (Reason & United States of America)  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

95,702.  Shakes off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched.  Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion.  (Prejudice & Reason)  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

328.  Nothing can be more contrary to religion and the clergy than reason and common sense.  (Religion & Reason & Common Sense)  Voltaire

372.  It is only be dispelling the clouds and phantoms of religion that we shall discover truth, reason and morality.  (Religion & Truth & Reason & Morality)  Baron d’Holbach

 

 

67,575.  Nothing can be more contrary to religion and the clergy than reason and common sense.  (Clergy & Religion & Reason & Common Sense)  Baron d'Holbach

 

 

428.  If there by any among those common objects of hatred I do condemn and laugh at, it is that great enemy of reason – virtue and religion, the multitude, that numerous piece of monstrosity, which taken asunder seem men, and the reasonable creatures of God; but confused together, make but one great beast, and a monstrosity more prodigious than Hydra.  (Religion & Reason & Passions)  Sir Thomas Browne, Religio Meidici 1643

 

 

449.  Men have lost their reason in nothing so much as their religion.  (Religion & Reason)  Sir Thomas Browne

769.  You see, Christians use Hell as a way to scare people into believing what they believe.  But to believe in something just because you’re afraid of the consequences of not believing in something is no reason to believe in something.  (Belief & Christianity & Reason & Religion)  South Park

 

 

777.  Epidemiology is also a ‘social construct’ with ‘societal causes’ etc. – but this doesn’t mean that the germ theory of disease isn’t true or that any rival ‘construct’ – like one suggesting that child rape will cure AIDS – isn’t a dangerous, deplorable, and unnecessary eruption of primeval stupidity.  We either have good reasons or bad reasons for what we believe; we can be open to evidence and argument, or we can be closed; we can tolerate (and even seek) criticism of our most cherished views, or we can hide behind authority, sanctity, and dogma.  The main reason why children are still raised to think that the universe is 6,000 years old is not because religion as a ‘social institution’ hasn’t been appropriately coddled and cajoled, but because polite people (and scientists terrified of losing their funding) haven’t laughed this belief off the face of the earth.  (Belief & Children & Reason)  Sam Harris

 

 

1,013.  It is time that we admitted that faith is nothing more that the license religious people give one another to keep believing when reasons fail.  (Faith & Religion & Reason)  Sam Harris, Letter to a Christian Nation

 

 

2,273.  Reason is nothing less than the guardian of love.  (Reason & Love)  Sam Harris, The End of Faith

 

 

834.  Fictions are necessary to the people, and the Truth becomes deadly to those who are not strong enough to contemplate it all in its brilliance.  In fact, what can there be in common with the vile multitude and sublime wisdom?  The truth must be kept secret, and the masses need a teaching proportioned to their imperfect reason.  (Truth & Fiction & Masses & Wisdom & Reason)  Albert Pike, Sovereign Grand Commander, Mother Supreme Council of the World, the Supreme Council of the 33rd degree, Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

 

 

931.  The word belief is a difficult thing for me.  I don't believe.  I must have a reason for a certain hypothesis.  Either I know a thing, and then I know it - I don't need to believe it.  (Belief & Reason & Disbelief)  Carl Jung

 

 

1,022.  Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted in spite of your changing moods.  (Faith & Reason & Mood)  C S Lewis
