Here's a fun quote

from Reimarus,
"Contradiction is a devil and father of
lies, who refuses to be driven out either by fasting
and prayer, or by miracles."
Pg. 76. It's a quick read. I've gotten this far since 9:00. About half the book.

You might want to look to the WikiPedia article to find out who Reimarus was.

Guess I'd better go to bed now.

From what your link shows, this fellow was an interesting person, one not easily put into a "round hole". He appears to have questioned everything regarding the status quo of religion, something refreshing even today. I'd rather meet with somebody who investigates and ponders rather than one who just follows because somebody told him things were just so. He'd have been worth knowing, even if we disagreed on issues.
