FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: “There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is a proof against all arguments, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance – that principle is contempt prior to investigation.” Herbert Spencer (h/t to TK)

QUOTE II: “Hope is the gift that keeps giving when we think God is asleep.” Michael Essmen

I am very wary of getting excited about movies that are reported being the end of Catholic Church but the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter reports, "NEW YORK (CNS) - The fashionable "new atheism" - popularized in book form by such authors as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens -- unexpectedly slithers its way into the neighborhood cineplex with the arrival of "The Invention of Lying" (Warner Bros.).Though its trailer gives no clue as to its true agenda, this venomous supposed comedy is set in a world where lying is unknown and every word spoken is accepted as truth and where -- not accidentally, the screenplay implies -- God does not exist. Until, that is, failed documentary screenwriter and all-around loser Mark Bellison (Ricky Gervais) spontaneously discovers the ability to deceive." More here.
