When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized that I was talking to myself.
Peter Barnes, The Ruling Class
It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.

Believing is easier than thinking. Hence so many more believers than thinkers. Bruce Calvert
