A Quote by sam harris on religion faith, dialogue, and belief

It seems profoundly unlikely that we will heal the division in our world through interfaith dialogue. Devout Muslims are as convinced as you are that their religion is perfect and that any deviation leads directly to hell. It is easy, of course, for the representatives of the major religions to occasionally meet and agree that there should be peace on earth, or that compassion is the common thread that unites all the world's faiths. But there is no escaping the fact that a person's religious beliefs uniquely determine what he thinks peace is good for, as well as what he means by a term like "compassion." There are millions---maybe hundreds of millions--of Muslims who would be willing to die before they would allow your version of compassion to gain a foothold on the Arabian Peninsula. How can interfaith dialogue, even at the highest level, reconcile worldviews that are fundamentally incompatible and, in principle, immune to revision? The truth is, it really matter what billions of human beings believe and why they believe it.

A Quote by sam harris on ethics, religion, spirituality, critical thinking, faith, and belief

One of the greatest challenges facing civilization in the twenty-first century is for human beings to learn to speak about their deepest personal concerns--about ethics, spiritual experience, and the inevitability of human suffering--in ways that are not flagrantly irrational. We desperately need a public discourse that encourages critical thinking and intellectual honesty. Nothing stands in the way of this project more that the respect we accord religious faith.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on belief, biology of belief, age of light, consciousness, enlightenment, love, unconditional love, enemy patterning, victim consciousness, conscious evolution, evolution, divinity, light, 2012, mayan calendar, intelligent design,

Many believe that the dawning Age of Light or Age of Consciousness defines itself in relation to our capacity for unconditional love, our ability to transcend enemy patterning and victim consciousness while adopting unity consciousness that sees divinity in all things. From this standpoint, it might be said humans are evolving into a “biologically conscious” species capable of holding and sharing the full light of unconditional love.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on leper, belief, fiction, make-believe, jesus, god, satan, luke soloman, funny, humorous, and hilarious

I’d never seen a leper before. To be honest I didn’t really believe in them. I’d always assumed they were just made-up Biblical characters like Jesus, God and Satan.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on philosophy, belief, doctrine, criteria, buddhism, judgment, tradition, imagine, teacher, examine, analysis, analyze, welfare, beings, and guide

Believe nothing, O monks, just because you have been told it, or it is commonly believed, or because it is traditional or because you yourselves have imagined it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings - that doctrine believe and cling to and take as your guide.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)
