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
The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.
~ Thomas Paine
What has ‘theology’ ever said that is of the smallest use to anybody? When has ‘theology’ ever said anything that is demonstrably true and is not obvious? What makes you think that ‘theology’ is a subject at all?
~ Richard Dawkins
Let us put theology out of religion. Theology has always sent the worst to heaven, the best to hell.
~ Robert Green Ingersoll
For centuries, theologians have been explaining the unknowable in terms of the-not-worth-knowing.
~ Henry Louis Mencken
