Real evil

Real evil proceeds from human intelligence and its origin rests entirely with reasoning man who dissociates himself from Nature

The chief cause of nearly two thirds of the evils that pursue humanity ... is religion

It is the sacerdotal caste, the priesthood and the churches

It is in those illusions that man looks upon as sacred

That he has to search out the source of that multitude of evils

Which is the great curse of humanity and that almost overwhelms mankind.

Ignorance created Gods and cunning took advantage of the opportunity. ...

Is not man ever ready to commit any kind of evil if told that his God or Gods demand the crime? ...

The sum of human misery will never be diminished until that day when the better portion of humanity destroys in the name of Truth, morality, and universal charity, the altars of their false gods
