Herbert A Wise Quotes

"The tales of pure terror, of course, are completely naturalistic in their content, and must stand or fall by their merit alone. But what about the supernatural stories? Can we, the children of a scientific age, give any credence to these medleys of devils, ghosts, and other psychical invasions? There is only one answer: we can and do. We are dealing with stories, not with scientific dissertations. And if, as stories, they have the ring of truth, well believe them, as stories, implicitly.("Introduction")"

Quotes About Allowing Evil

"The notion that evil is non-rational is a more significant claim for Eagleton than at first appears, because he is (in this book [On Evil] as in others of his recent late period prolific burst) anxious to rewrite theology: God (whom he elsewhere tells us is nonexistent, but this is no barrier to his being lots of other things for Eagleton too, among them Important) is not to be regarded as rational: with reference to the Book of Job Eagleton says, To ask after Gods reasons for allowing evil, so [some theologians] claim, is to imagine him as some kind of rational or moral being, which is the last thing he is. This is priceless: with one bound God is free of responsibility for natural evil—childhood cancers, tsunamis that kill tens of thousands—and for moral evil also even though he is CEO of the company that purposely manufactured its perpetrators; and he is incidentally exculpated from blame for the hideous treatment meted out to Job." - Author: A.C.
