Voltaire, what a classic deceiver.
I mean, he has a good public image to this day, you would have to be a good deceiver.
Voltaire was the person who tried to kill God, and say "I think, therefore I am"
This is classic denial of the mind, and it is obviously subversive in making people think their mind and body are one. This teaching/"wisdom" has
survived to this day.
" When its a question of money, everybody is of the same religion."
Another classic lie.
"It is lamentable, that to be a good patriot one must become the enemy of the rest of mankind. "
"If God did not exist it would be necessary to invent Him."
"As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities. "
Pretty clear what he is trying to do here. If you believe that there is a higher power, you are absurd. Because look at the crazy things other people
have done, who claim to have believed the same as you!
I am not Christian, but it is clear what his methods are.
"Superstition is to religion what astrology is to astronomy; the mad daughter of a wise mother."
"There are truths that are not for all men, nor for all times. "
"One great use of words is to hide our thoughts."
And finally, you know hot to prove Voltaire invented all these quotes for fun...
I Love Art
It was not his real name, and now you know how he came to choose it. There are no accidents. If you trust this guy, it is up to you. Personally, he
makes me think, but not always what he feels is 'worth' thinking.
