Quote of the Day

“It doesn’t seem to me that this fantastically marvelous universe, this tremendous range of time and space and different kinds of animals, and all the different planets, and all these atoms with all their motions, and so on, all this complicated thing can merely be a stage so that God can watch human beings struggle for good and evil – which is the view that religion has. The stage is too big for the drama.” ― Richard Feynman

One thought on “Quote of the Day

  1. Philip Jose Farmer wrote a short story called ‘The Making of Revelation, Part One’ in which god resurrects Cecil B. Demille to direct Armageddon. Things are promising to start off with. DeMille hires Harlan Ellison to write the script because, “Ellison is the only writer who isn’t afraid to argue with god.” But things go south when the writer quits, production runs into technical problems (the sky-rolling-up-like-a-scroll machine never works quite right) and labour issues (because guess who controls the unions!). Eventually the project folds.

    There’s no real moral here, except maybe that god understands the importance of putting on a really good show.
