Thought for the day

“Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions.”
– Thomas Jefferson

He was talking about the trinity and the full quote runs:

“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.” 

In other words, don’t complain about us making fun of your peculiar religious ideas if you can’t even nail down what it is that you believe and keep jumping all over the place.
