"We want to stand upon our own feet and look fair and square at the world -- its good facts, its bad facts, its beauties, and its ugliness; see the world as it is and be not afraid of it. Conquer the world by intelligence and not merely by being slavishly subdued by the terror that comes from it. The whole conception of a god is a conception derived from the ancient oriental despotisms. It is a conception quite unworthy of free men."
-- Bertrand Russell
This lecture by the legendary philosopher and pacifist Bertrand Russell, delivered on March 6, 1927 to the National Secular Society, South London Branch, at Battersea Town Hall, explains in plain language why he chooses not to be a Christian.
