Favorite quotes[edit]

  • Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. ~Albert Einstein
  • Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory says a lot, but does not really bring us any closer to the secret of the 'old one'. I, at any rate, am convinced that He does not throw dice. (God does not play dice with the universe). ~Albert Einstein
  • Science seems irrelevant. Science can heal, or science can kill. It depends on the soul of the man using the science. It is the soul that interests me. ~Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, Angels & Demons
  • Do scientists really believe quarks and mesons inspire the average human being? Or that equations could replace someone's need for faith in the divine? ~Sylvie Baudeloque, Angels & Demons
  • Science may have alleviated the miseries of disease and drudgery and provided an array of gadgetry for our entertainment and convenience, but is has left us in a world with out wonder. Our sunsets have been reduced to wavelengths and frequencies. The complexities of the universe have been shredded into mathematical equations. Even our self-worth as human beings has been destroyed. Science proclaims that Planet Earth and its inhabitants are a meaningless speck in the grand scheme. A cosmic accident. Even the technology that promises to unite us, divides us. Each of us is now electronically connected to the globe, and yet we feel utterly alone. We are bombarded with violence, division, fracture, and betrayal. Skepticism has become a virtue. Cynicism and demand for proof has become enlightened thought. Is it any wonder that humans now feel more depressed and defeated than they have at any point in human history? Does science hold anything sacred? Science looks for answers by probing our unborn fetuses. Science even presumes to rearrange our own DNA. It shatters God’s world into smaller and smaller pieces in quest of meaning… and all it finds is more questions. ~Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, Angels & Demons
  • Scientific growth is exponential. It feeds on itself like a virus. Every new breakthrough opens doors for new breakthroughs. Mankind took thousands of years to progress from the wheel to the car. Yet only decades from the car into space. Now we measure scientific progress in weeks. We are spinning out of control. The rift between us grows deeper and deeper, and as religion is left behind, people find themselves in a spiritual void. We cry out for meaning. And believe me, we do cry out. WE see UFOs, engage in channeling, spirit contact, out-of-body experiences, mindquests — all these eccentric ideas have a scientific veneer, but they are unashamedly irrational. They are the desperate cry of the modern soul, lonely and tormented, crippled by its own enlightenment and its inability to accept meaning in anything removed from technology. ~Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, Angels & Demons
  • Who is this God science? Who is the God who offers his people power but no moral framework to tell you how to use that power? What kind of God gives a child fire but does not warn the child of its dangers? The language of science comes with no signposts about good and bad. Science textbooks tell us how to create a nuclear reaction, and yet they contain no chapter asking us if it is a good or a bad idea. ~Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, Angels & Demons
  • Who is more ignorant? The man who cannot define lightning, or the man who does not respect its awesome power? ~Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, Angels & Demons
  • Show me proof there is a God, you say. I say use your telescopes to look to the heavens, and tell me how there could not be a God! You ask what does God look like. I say, where does that question come from? The answers are one and the same. Do you not see God in you science? How can you miss Him! You proclaim that even the slightest change in the force of gravity or the weight of an atom would have rendered our universe a lifeless mist rather than our magnificent sea of heavenly bodies, and yet you fail to see God’s hand in this? Is it really so much easier to believe that we simply chose the right card from a deck of billions? Have we become so spiritually bankrupt that we would rather believe in mathematical impossibility than in a power greater than us? ~Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, Angels & Demons
  • Science and religion are not in this together! We do not seek the same God, you and I! Who is your God? One of protons, masses, and particle charges? How does your God inspire? How does your God reach into the hearts of man and remind him he is accountable to a greater power! Remind him that he is accountable to his fellow man! ~Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, Angels & Demons
  • Man cannot put God's Creation in a test tube and wave it around for the world to see! ~Camerlengo Carlo Ventresca, Angels & Demons
  • Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? ~Juvenal
    • Translation: Who will guard the guards?
  • There are more things in heaven and earth, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. ~Hamlet, Act I, scene v
  • A mathematician is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat which isn't there. ~Charles Darwin
  • If you can't see God in All, You can't see God at All. ~Harbhajan Singh Yogi
  • People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people. ~V for Vendetta
  • Life is a shipwreck, but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats. ~Voltaire
  • Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same. ~Flavia Weedn
  • We wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,—
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.
Why should the world be over-wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.
~Paul Laurence Dunbar
