Colin Howson Quotes

"One of the recent arguments from design, that based on the so-called fine-tuning life of some fundamental physical constants, founders on the following objections: an extremely small prior probability merited by the God of theism in light – if that is the right word – of the Problem of Evil; the fact that it is not unreasonable to place a substantial probability on the hypothesis that a future theory will fix those values; and the sheer incoherence of computations of the ‘chances of fine-tuning were there no fine-tuner."

"The sleds accelerated quickly as they glided effortlessly over the smooth ice. We had never before experienced such a quick, easy slide. usually we wished we could push ourselves to make our sleds go faster. But not this time. The crystals of ice started flying past at an incredible rate of speed. No longer aware of where my sister and her sled were, all I could see was raw ice whizzing by ten inches under my chin at a rate of speed I never imagined I would experience on a sled. I felt like I was flying!"

Quotes About Slaying Life

"Oh, its nothing to be ashamed of. Slaying a villain in the service of your king is the stuff of legends and what heroes are made of." [Fanen told Myron]"It didnt feel very heroic. It made me sick. I dont even know why I... no, thats a lie. I really have to stop doing that." [Myron said]"Doing what?""Lying. (...) Its evidence of self loathing. You see, when you are so ashamed of your actions, thoughts, or intentions, you lie to hide it rather than accept yourself for who you really are. The idea of how others see you becomes more important than the reality of you. "Its like when a man would rather die than be thought of a coward. His life is not as important to him as his reputation. In the end, who is the braver? The man who dies rather than be thought of as a coward or the man who lives willing to face who he really is?" [Myron finished]"Im sorry, you lost me there" Fanen said with a quizzical look." - Author: Michael J. Sullivan

Quotes About Media Censorship

"Media censorship is a prohibition of words and pictures. The war on drugs is a complete failure, and so is the American war on words. When you forbid a word, you give it power. Self-proclaimed rebels will use words like shit or fuck, simply to shock and sound cool." - Author: Oliver Markus

Quotes About Argumentation

"Believers in psychic phenomena... appear to have won a decisive victory and virtually silenced opposition.... This victory is the result of careful experimentation and intelligent argumentation. Dozens of experimenters have obtained positive results in ESP experiments, and the mathematical procedures have been approved by leading statisticians.... Against all this evidence, almost the only defense remaining to the skeptical scientist is ignorance." - Author: George R. Price

Quotes About Metacognition

"How do we regulate our emotions? The answer is surprisingly simple: by thinking about them. The prefrontal cortex allows each of us to contemplate his or her own mind, a talent psychologists call metacognition. We know when we are angry; every emotional state comes with self-awareness attached, so that an individual can try to figure out why hes feeling what hes feeling. If the particular feeling makes no sense—if the amygdala is simply responding to a loss frame, for example—then it can be discounted. The prefrontal cortex can deliberately choose to ignore the emotional brain." - Author: Jonah Lehrer

Quotes About Heritage Sites

"All writing is rubbish. People who try to free themselves from what is vague in order to state precisely whatever is going on in their minds are producing rubbish. The whole literary tribe is a pack of rubbish mongers, especially today. All those who have landmarks in their minds, I mean in a certain part of their heads, in well-defined sites in their skulls, all those who are masters of language, all those for whom words have meaning, all those for whom the soul has its heights and thought its currents, those who are the spirits of the times, and who have given names to these currents of thought—I am thinking of their specific tasks, and of that mechanical creaking their minds produce at every gust of wind—are rubbish mongers." - Author: Antonin Artaud

Quotes About Orgia

"I kinda like Florida. Its hot as hell, but we moved to Tallahassee, which is so close to Georgia. It really wasnt Florida the way people think of Florida. It wasnt south Florida.

Quotes About Multiple Divorces

"Very close by the CMS shops, hidden about a quarter mile away in the woods, was the prisons rifle range. Correctional officers could spend quality time with their firearms down there, and the hammering of multiple rounds was typical background noise during our workdays. There was something unsettling about toiling away for a prison while listening to your jailers practice shooting you." - Author: Piper Kerman

Quotes About Funny Blackmail

"One last thing," he said. "Stop looking for me.""Im not looking for you." I scoffed.He touched his index finger to my forehead, my skin absurdly warming under his touch. It didnt escape me that he couldnt seem to stop finding reasons to touch me. Nor did I miss that I didnt want him to stop. "Under all the layers, a part of you remembers. Its the part that came looking for me tonight. Its that part thats going to get you killed, if youre not careful."We stood face-to-face, both of us breathing hard. The sirens were so close now."What am I supposed to tell the police?" I said."Youre not going to talk to the police.""Oh, really? Funny, because I plan on telling them exactly how you rammed that tire iron into Gabes back. Unless you answer my questions."He gave an ironic snort. "Blackmail? Youve changed, Angel." - Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
