Thomas Jefferson on ridicule

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus."

Thomas Jefferson

Comments

The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one.
