"Wandering in a vast forest at night, I have only a faint light to guide me. A stranger appears and says to me: ""My friend, you should blow out your candle in order to find your way more clearly. This stranger is a theologian."
― Denis Diderot
“Theology is never any help; it is searching in a dark cellar at midnight for a black cat that isn't there. Theologians can persuade themselves of anything.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
