Quote of the day

"When humans act as spokesmen for the gods, mortality becomes more important than morality. Martyrdom corrects this discrepancy, but only for a brief interval. The sorry thing about martyrs is that they are not around to explain what it all meant. Nor do they stay to see the terrible consequences of martyrdom." - The Jesus Incident, Frank Herbert & Bill Ransom



  1. "The faith lives by the faithful
    - not the reverse -
    no matter that the faithful have this faith.
    The few who actually live off the faith,
    albeit the faith of others
    more than their own, see to this,
    belying again the faith of the faithful."
    Karlheinz Deschner
