Text Quotes
Once infected, the individual [infected with a God virus] cannot detect major contradictions in his beliefs and behavior. Belief systems become self-evident to him, and no amount of logical discourse will move him from his belief. If a Mormon and Catholic were to debate the merits of their respective religions, neither could see his own inconsistencies and logical fallacies, but would see the other’s quite clearly  (Darrel Ray Quotes) Jesus must have been married to have been called a rabbi  (Darrel Ray Quotes) Have you ever observed somebody go through a religious conversion? The person seems perfectly reasonable to you and has no particular concern for religion. Then a parent, friend or child dies or he gets a serious illness or is involved in a car accident. In just a matter of weeks, he seeks out and finds the answers to all of life’s questions and starts studying and spouting all sorts of doctrine. During such a window of vulnerability, religion can commandeer a person’s brain  (Darrel Ray Quotes) Just as the chicken pox virus continues to live quietly in the body after the disease is gone, the God virus may live quietly in the host until something evokes it  (Darrel Ray Quotes) Islam has some of the best defenses against other God viruses and has the potential to be more parasitically aggressive when consolidating political power with a society  (Darrel Ray Quotes) Some people who experience a religious conversion seem to undergo a personality change. They can be quite congenial and easygoing when talking about mundane things, but when they start talking about their faith, their demeanor changes. Their tone of voice modifies, their smile becomes tense and they become defensive when questioned about their evidence for belief. It becomes difficult to have a friendly conversation with them  (Darrel Ray Quotes) Religion has the capacity to silence critical thinking and create blindness in entire groups of people. It can infect the minds of followers so completely as to allow the most egregious sexual acts against children and others to go unchallenged for centuries  (Darrel Ray Quotes) All religions have something to say about sex, and it rarely coincides with scientific knowledge of sex and sexuality  (Darrel Ray Quotes) We acquire both the language and religious concepts from our immediate culture – at the same time. A child cannot discriminate between useful survival information and the emotional and psychological manipulations of religion. Once infected, these ideas are deeply embedded and almost impossible to change  (Darrel Ray Quotes) Theology has not advanced an inch in the last 1,000 years. How much respect does a profession deserve if it cannot add to the knowledge and understanding of man?  (Darrel Ray Quotes)
