    The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.


    Mark Twain

    "He commanded Adam not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; To disobey could not be a sin, because Adam could not comprehend a sin until the eating the fruit should reveal to him the difference between right and wrong. So he was unfair in punishing Adam for doing wrong when he could not know it was wrong.

    It ain't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand.


    Faith is believing something you know ain't true.

    One of the proofs of the immortality of the soul is that myriads have believed in it. They have also believed the world was flat.

    Our Bible reveals to us the character of our god with minute and remorseless exactness... It is perhaps the most damnatory biography that exists in print anywhere. It makes Nero an angel of light and leading by contrast.


    There is one notable thing about our Christianity: bad, bloody, merciless, money-grabbing and predatory as it is -- in our country particularly, and in all other Christian countries in a somewhat modified degree -- it is still a hundred times better than the Christianity of the Bible, with its prodigious crime -- the invention of Hell. Measured by our Christianity of to-day, bad as it is, hypocritical as it is, empty and hollow as it is, neither the Deity nor His Son is a Christian, nor qualified for that moderately high place. Ours is a terrible religion. The fleets of the world could swim in spacious comfort in the innocent blood it has spilt."


    Mark Twain's advice on death does not belong on a Christian message board. Shame on you.
