    Samuel Johnson of dictionary fame made a similar observation:

    “The applause of a single human being is of great consequence.”

    So did George Bernard Shaw:

    “All great truths begin as blasphemies.”

    I try.

    I have a few quotes I would like to share aswell:

    Two lions broke loose in the zoo and were eating a clown.
    One lion said to the other …
    “Does this taste funny to you?”
    – Unknown

    “Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.”

    Ok, this has nothing to do with the ID/Evolution debate, but it’s still funny.

    Bill, so true. I’ve never known a leader to have a guide, a pathfinder
    a path, or a trailblazer a trail.

    Bob Dylan…

    “Yes, ‘n’ how many years can some people exist
    Before they’re allowed to be free?
    Yes, ‘n’ how many times can a man turn his head,
    Pretending he just doesn’t see?”

    “Come writers and critics
    Who prophesize with your pen
    And keep your eyes wide
    The chance won’t come again
    And don’t speak too soon
    For the wheel’s still in spin
    And there’s no tellin’ who
    That it’s namin’.
    For the loser now
    Will be later to win
    For the times they are a-changin’.”

    “Well, you’re on your own, you always were,
    In a land of wolves and thieves.
    Don’t put your hope in ungodly man
    Or be a slave to what somebody else believes.”

    “Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
    But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.” 1979: http://www.bobdylan.com/songs/serve.html

    The Nitty Gritty

    Hey Son, where you goin’
    Across the sands of time?
    No footprints to follow,
    No feet seen behind.

    Can you see where you’re goin?
    Do you wonder where you’ve been?Are you in a place called heaven
    Or is hell around each bend?

    You’ve got to learn to tale it easy
    And to rest awhile each day.
    Stop and think about tomorrow.
    Set some signs along the way.

    For life is what you make it.
    Don’t let others steer you wrong.
    Love and laugh, live and take it.
    Drown your tears in a song.
    Take a little bit of heaven.
    Raise a little bit of hell.
    You’ve got to live to learn the difference
    Or your song will never sail.

    Son, don’t ever build a mountain
    You cannot climb alone.
    Set the beat and face the music
    If no others sing along.

    If you want to build a highway
    For folks to walk upon,
    Make sure you make it two-way
    And travel with a song.

    For who will want to follow
    A fellow to the end,
    If they don’t know where he’s goin’
    And they don’t know where he’s been.

    See, the world will not remember
    Even signs stuck in the sand.Don’t be preachin’ without teachin’
    Don’t play God, just be a man.

    If the world will not accept you
    And you’ve given all you can,
    Call for help when help is needed
    And I’ll meet you in the sand.

    So kiss the Son, you sons of leaven.
    Bow your knee, you kings of sin.
    I’ll not slay my son for heaven.
    I’ll not tell him where I’ve been.

    More disquieting still is Professor D. M. S. Watson’s defense. “Evolution itself,” he wrote, “is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or… can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible.” Has it come to that? Does the whole vast structure of modern naturalism depend not on positive evidence but simply on an a priori metaphysical prejudice. Was it devised not to get in facts but to keep out God? ~ http://bevets.com/equotesl2.htm#clewis

    Truths cannot end as superstitions because they are absolute. Otherwise they are not truths.

    That is what I keep trying to tell them George. They just don’t listen!
