Sunday Quote: Tillotson on Eternity

He who provides for this life, but takes no care for eternity, is wise for a moment, but a fool forever.

– John Tillotson

    Prove he is wrong:-)

    Let me see now… who has made the claim here?

    Oh yes… the theist John Tillotson.

    So guess where the burden of proof rests?

    Not with me…

    Take care

    Lee, you have convinced me of one thing. Atheism is the easiest of all belief systems, intellectualy. You never have to prove anything. Great gig!

    Hi SteveC

    It is a non-belief system, and when I make no claim, I have nothing to prove.

    I am glad you are catching on 🙂

    I rest my case 🙂

    What a beautiful site. Thank you!

    The "proof" comes later. Like someone who has seen a pie cooking in the oven, and someone who hasn't. Prove it will be a pie! Well, wait and see. But, by then it will be too late, and the obfuscating secrets of the heart open to all.

    Hi RkBall

    The "proof" comes later.

    What you like to buy some magic beans from me?

    Only $10,000 – to a friend like you.

    They will make you rich, just wait and see.

    The proof, as they say, comes later.

    You can trust me… I'm your friend 🙂

    So – the cheque is in the post?

    Are do you doubt my claim for some reason?

    Take care
