Phillip Adams Quotes

"Ive spent a life-time attacking religious beliefs and have not wavered from a view of the universe that many would regard as bleak. Namely, that it is a meaningless place devoid of deity.However Im unwilling simply to repeat the old arguments of the past when, in fact, God is a moving target and is taking all sorts of new shapes and forms. The arguments used against the long bow are not particularly useful when debating nuclear weapons, and the simple arguments against the old model gods are not sufficient when dealing with the likes of Davies et al.For example, the notion that God didnt exist, doesnt exist but may come into existence through the spread of consciousness throughout the universe is too clever to be pooh-poohed along Bertrand Russell lines. And if I had the time I could give you half a dozen other scientific theologies that will need snappier footwork from the atheist of the future."

Max F Perutz Quotes

"Science is part of culture. Culture isnt only art and music and literature, its also understanding what the world is made of and how it functions. People should know something about stars, matter and chemistry. People often say that they dont like chemistry but we deal with chemistry all the time. People dont know what heat is, they hardly know what water is. Im always surprised how little people know about anything. Im puzzled by it."

Quotes About Guitars Players

"In Washington Square, one could still feel the characters of Henry James and the presence of the author himself. Entering the perimeters of the white arch, one was greeted by the sounds of bongos and acoustic guitars, protest singers, political arguments, activists leafleting, older chess players challenged by the young.
