Bertrand Russell on God

source: HumanistLife via Free Infidel 

If only there were more people like Bertrand Russell today...

As one of the world’s more famous atheists, Bertrand Russell always had the knack of combining a brilliant intellect and profound insights with a startling clear expression of his ideas. Here’s a classic example.

Bertrand Russell answers:
  • Why are you not a Christian?  
  • Is there a practical reason for having a religious belief?
  • Is the ordinary person not strong enough to find a personal ethic and therefore has to have something imposed upon them from outside? 
  • Do you have a fear of an afterlife?
