One-Liner Wednesday — Delusion


“When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity; when many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.”

Robert Pirsig, American writer and philosopher

Oh Fandango, you didn’t really do that did you?

Do what?

Use that quote for today’s one-liner.

Hey, I didn’t say that. I was quoting Robert Pirsig. You know, the author of “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.”

Well, Dango, you’d better be prepared for a backlash for this one-liner. It’s gonna piss some people off.

No worries, pal. I say bring it on!

One-Liner Wednesday — Politics and Science


“When you mix politics and science, you get politics.”

American author and historian John M. Barry

I think the past three years, since the election of Donald Trump, perhaps the most demonstratively anti-science president in modern times, have demonstrated just how true this quote is.
