I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.

Richard†Dawkins (b. 1941) British Zoologist

David Gurteen's comments: This is a provocative statement from Richard Dawkins and I am sure one that could be hotly argued either way. Here's an opposing view Science and Religion

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.

If you love quotations as much as I do then you may wish to register to have a quote e-mailed to you once a week or more frequently by clicking on the button below and completing the form.

Quotations from Richard Dawkins:

 There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?

The God Delusion 

 Like computer viruses, successful mind viruses will tend to be hard for their victims to detect. If you are the victim of one, the chances are that you won't know it, and may even vigorously deny it.

Richard†Dawkins, (b. 1941) British Zoologist
