I wish to propose for the reader's favorable consideration a doctrine which may, I fear, appear wildly paradoxical and subversive. The doctrine in question is this: that it is undesirable to believe a proposition when there is no ground whatever for supposing it true.
--Bertrand Russell

The metaphysical speculations on which most of the world's religions are based would have to be thrown out the window if Russell's advice is taken.

That is OK by me.

I have always been a fan of his writing.
