Sir Richard Francis Burton on Religions

“The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshiped anything but himself.”

Sir Richard Francis Burton

  1. This may be one of the stupidest quotes about religion I have ever read. The God of the Bible is in some ways like us, yes, as we are created in His image; on the other hand we fall so short and fail so often to do what He wants that it is just strange to argue that we are worshipping a “being” that is just like us. For the pagans, this statement makes more sense, but for the Truth (i.e. the God of the Bible) it just doesn’t fit the facts.
