Grayling's Genesis

The Guardian's interview with philosopher AC Grayling (h/t: onegoodmove) demonstrates his talent for aphorisms:

I am putting together a secular bible. My Genesis is when the apple falls on Newton's head.


When I was 14 a chaplain at school gave me a reading list. I read everything and I went back to him with a question: how can you really believe in this stuff?


Christian churches and Muslim groups have no more right to have their say than women's institutes or trades unions. The government has actively encouraged faith-based education, and therefore given a megaphone to religious voices and fundamentalists.

Grayling's books on atheism just moved up several notches on my reading list.
