Description

Heathens - "Bertrand Russell" Fabrizio Toigo Simone Cadorin Alfredo Monego Amedeo Casanova Maja Zisko VISIVA STUDIO "Why are you not a Christian?" "Because I see no evidence whatever for any of the Christian dogmas. I've examined all the stock arguments in favour of the existence of God, and none of them seem to me to be logically valid." "Do you think there's a practical reason for having a religious belief, for many people?" "Well, there can't be a practical reason for believing what isn't true. That's quite... at least, I rule it out as impossible. Either the thing is true, or it isn't. If it is true, you should believe it, and if it isn't, you shouldn't. And if you can't find out whether it's true or whether it isn't, you should suspend judgment. But you can't... it seems to me a fundamental dishonesty and a fundamental treachery to intellectual integrity to hold a belief because you think it's useful, and not because you think it's true." "I was thinking of those people who find that some kind of religious code helps them to live their lives. It gives them a very strict set of rules, the rights and the wrongs." "They would probably be able to find a rational morality that they could live by if they dropped this irrational traditional taboo morality that comes down from savage ages."
