But his most passionate rejection of religion, and specifically Christian salvation, came from the more personal perspective of a man who was diagnosed with esophageal cancer this summer.
The essence of the mind is not in what it thinks, but how it thinks. Faith is the surrender of our mind; of reason and our skepticism to put all our trust or faith in someone or something that has no good evidence of itself. That is a sinister thing to me. Of all the supposed virtues, faith is not.
