克里斯多弗●希钦斯的语录

克里斯多弗●希钦斯〔Christopher Hitchens〕〔1949 - 2001〕,是本世纪著名的无神论者。以下是他的七则常被引用的语录:

1. Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way.

敢於冒独立思考之险,更多的幸福、真理、美丽和智慧,必将接踵而至。

2. That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.

那些没有证据的断言,无须证据即可屏弃之。

3. Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.

人的尊严不是来自宗教的,是早在它之前就有的。

4. Gullibility and credulity are considered undesirable qualities in every department of human life -- except religion.

轻信与盲从,对人的生命,从任何一个角度而言,都是不好的 -  但宗教除外。

5. The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.

我唯一沒有在认知上失调的是无神论。它不是教条。死亡是肯定的,它取代天堂的妙曼之歌与地狱的恐惧。人生在世,有各种神袐、美丽与痛苦的际遇,让生活更加深厚:我们倒下又站起来,我们伤心、或充满信心、或不安全感、感受孤独、欢愉与爱。就是这些而已,但我要求的也就这么多。

6.The Bible may, indeed does, contain a warrant for trafficking in humans, for ethnic cleansing, for slavery, for bride-price, and for indiscriminate massacre, but we are not bound by any of it because it was put together by crude, uncultured human mammals.

圣经可能真的有一道手令,对付贩卖人口,种族清洗,奴隶制,估价新娘,以及不分青红皂白的屠杀,但我们却完全不受它的约束,因为这一切都是由殘忍、无文化教养的人类共同造的业障。

7. Faith is the surrender of the mind; it’s the surrender of reason, it’s the surrender of the only thing that makes us different from other mammals. It’s our need to believe, and to surrender our skepticism and our reason, our yearning to discard that and put all our trust or faith in someone or something, that is the sinister thing to me. Of all the supposed virtues, faith must be the most overrated.

信仰会让人放弃思考、放弃据理力爭,而我们放弃的恰恰是我们唯一与其他哺乳动物不同的东西。我们需要相信自己,放弃我们的致疑与理智,意愿放弃这些,将我们所有的信任或信仰,全部压在某一个人或一件事之上,对我而言,是最大的罪过。在全部所谓的道德中,信仰可以说是最被高估的了。
