jaimedw added The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weakness, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still purely primitive, legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can change this for me. For me religion is an incarnation of the most childish superstition. Albert Einstein

Without doubt God is the universal moving force, but each being is moved according to the nature that God has given it.

This rule is truly the eternal law and in it we must believe. Joseph de Maistre
