    Re: Religious Quote of the Day

    The whole history of these books [the Gospels] is so defective and doubtful that it seems vain to attempt minute enquiry into it: and such tricks have been played with their text, and with the texts of other books relating to them, that we have a right, from that cause, to entertain much doubt what parts of them are genuine. In the New Testament there is internal evidence that parts of it have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds. It is as easy to separate those parts, as to pick out diamonds from dunghills.

    -Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Adams

    Sorry, as far as I can tell, it hasn't been proven one way or the other.

    Got a link to prove otherwise?

    Status: We have not found this quotation in any of Jefferson's known writings.
    I'd think if he wrote it these people would know about it.

    Great!!

    Until the original source has been proven one way or the other, I'll just use their theist tactic and say, if you can't prove he said it or not, I believe he did!

    Jefferson or not, I agree with the sentiment 110%.:judges:

    Re: Religious Quote of the Day

    I don't mind the quote here. I was only challenging the source. I don't believe he said it at all. He was not a true Christian, but he was a believer and his other writings show hat he respected religion and its influence on Man. He wasn't a God Hater.

    Re: Religious Quote of the Day

    I'm predicting THIS will become your new favorite:

    "The Christian god is a three headed monster; cruel, vengeful and capricious. If one wishes to know more of this raging, three headed beast-like god, one only needs to look at the caliber of people who say they serve him. They are always of two classes: fools and hypocrites."-- Attributed to old TJ by the God Haters

    Still, it has no proven source.
