Quotes of Ludwig Fuerbach

“As we expand our knowledge of good books, we shrink the circle of men whose company we appreciate.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach

“I would rather be a devil in alliance with truth, than an angel in alliance with falsehood.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“Christianity set itself the goal of fulfilling man’s unattainable desires, but for that very reason ignored his attainable desires. By promising man eternal life, it deprived him of temporal life, by teaching him to trust in God’s help it took away his trust in his own powers; by giving him faith in a better life in heaven, it destroyed his faith in a better life on earth and his striving to attain such a life. Christianity gave man what his imagination desires, but for that very reason failed to give him what he really and truly desires.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, Lectures on the Essence of Religion

“Wherever morality is based on theology, wherever right is made dependent on divine authority, the most immoral, unjust, infamous things can be justified and established.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“[T]ruth is considered profane, and only illusion is sacred” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“God did not, as the Bible says, make man in His image; on the contrary man, as I have shown in The Essence of Christianity, made God in his image.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, Lectures on the Essence of Religion

“To theology, ... only what it holds sacred is true, whereas to philosophy, only what holds true is sacred.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, Lectures on the Essence of Religion

 

 “Consciousness in the strictest sense is present only in a being to whom his species, his essential nature, is an object of thought.” //“To suffer is the highest command of Christianity – the history of Christianity is the history of the passion … [T]he ancient Christians … rendered the highest honour to their God by … tears of repentance and yearning. … If God himself suffered for my sake, how can I be joyful, how can I allow myself any gladness, at least on this corrupt earth, which was the theatre of his suffering?” 
The Feuerbach Principle:  “To every religion the gods of other religions are only notions concerning God, but its own conception of God is to it God himself, the true God.” 
“Everybody makes his own god(s).” 
“[P]rayer is the … certainty that the power of the heart is greater than the power of Nature, … Prayer is the absolute relation of the human heart to itself, to its own nature; in prayer, man forgets that there exists a limit to his wishes, and is happy in this forgetfulness.” //“Religion … denies goodness as a quality of human nature; man is wicked, corrupt, incapable of good; … on the other hand, God is only good[.]” 
“God is the mirror of man.”

“Wherever this idea, that the religious predicates are only anthropomorphisms, has taken possession of man, there has doubt, has unbelief, obtained mastery of faith.” 
“[T]he present age, which prefers the sign to the thing signified, the copy to the original[.]” 
“The essence of faith … is the idea that that which man wishes actually is: he wishes to be immortal, therefore he is immortal; he wishes for the existence of a being who can do everything which is impossible to Nature and reason, therefore such a being exists[.]” 
“The Jewish people trusted thmself to do nothing except that what was commanded by God; they were without will even in external things; the authority of religion extended itself even to their food. The Christian religion, on the other hand, in all external things made humankind dependent on itself, i.e. placed in it what Judaism placed out of it. … Thus do things change. What yesterday was still religion is no longer such to-day; and what to-day is atheism, to-morrow will be religion.” 
“[O]mnipotence is nothing else than subjectivity exempting itself from all objective conditions and limitations[.]”

“[L]et any one transport himself to the time when living, present miracles were believed in; … when they lived only in the rapturous prospect and hope of heaven … (for whatever heaven may be for them, so long as they were on earth, it existed only in the imagination); … a principle to which men joyfully sacrificed real life, the real world with all its glories; … It is no valid objection that miracles have happened, or are supposed to have happened, in the presence of whole assemblies: no man was independent, all were filled with exalted supranaturalistic ideas and feelings; all were animated by the same faith, the same hope, the same hallucinations.” 
“Man … has the wish not to die. This wish is originally identical with the instinct of self-preservation. … Subsequently, … this primary negative wish becomes the positive wish for a life, and a better life, after death. … [T]his wish involves the further wish for the certainty of its fulfilment. Reason can afford no such certainty. … Such a certainty requires an immediate personal assurance, a practical demonstration. This can only be given to me by … a dead person … rising again from the grave; and he must be no indifferent person, but … representative of all others, so that his resurrection also maybe the … guarantee of theirs. The resurrection of Christ is … the satisfied desire of man for an immediate certainty of his personal existence after death[.]”

― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“As we expand our knowledge of good books, we shrink the circle of men whose company we appreciate.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach

“I would rather be a devil in alliance with truth, than an angel in alliance with falsehood.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

By promising man eternal life, it deprived him of temporal life, by teaching him to trust in God’s help it took away his trust in his own powers; by giving him faith in a better life in heaven, it destroyed his faith in a better life on earth and his striving to attain such a life. Christianity gave man what his imagination desires, but for that very reason failed to give him what he really and truly desires.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, Lectures on the Essence of Religion

“The power of thought is the light of knowledge, the power of will is the energy of character, the power of heart is love. Reason, love and power of will are perfections of man.” 

“Wherever morality is based on theology, wherever right is made dependent on divine authority, the most immoral, unjust, infamous things can be justified and established.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“[T]ruth is considered profane, and only illusion is sacred” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“The idea of God is the ignorance which solves all doubt by repressing it.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“Though I myself am an atheist, I openly profess religion in the sense just mentioned, that is, a nature religion. I hate the idealism that wrenches man out of nature; I am not ashamed of my dependency on nature; I openly confess that the workings of nature affect not only my surface, my skin, my body, but also my core, my innermost being, that the air I breathe in bright weather has a salutary effect not only on my lungs but also on my mind, that the light of the sun illumines not only my eyes but also my spirit and my heart. And I do not, like a Christian, believe that such dependency is contrary to my true being or hope to be delivered from it. I know further that I am a finite moral being, that I shall one day cease to be. But I find this very natural and am therefore perfectly reconciled to the thought.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, Lectures on the Essence of Religion

9

“God did not, as the Bible says, make man in His image; on the contrary man, as I have shown in The Essence of Christianity, made God in his image.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, Lectures on the Essence of Religion

“If therefore my work is negative, irreligious, atheistic, let it be remembered that atheism — at least in the sense of this work — is the secret of religion itself; that religion itself, not indeed on the surface, but fundamentally, not in intention or according to its own supposition, but in its heart, in its essence, believes in nothing else than the truth and divinity of human nature.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“The task of the modern era was the realization and humanization of God – the transformation and dissolution of theology into anthropology.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, Principles of the Philosophy of the Future

“The joys of theory are the sweetest intellectual pleasures of life” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“To theology, ... only what it holds sacred is true, whereas to philosophy, only what holds true is sacred.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, Lectures on the Essence of Religion

“[Theology is a] web of contradictions and delusions.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“[T]he object of any subject is nothing else than the subject's own nature taken objectively.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“To know God and not oneself to be God, to know blessedness and not oneself to enjoy it, is a state of disunity or unhappiness.” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“Whatever kind of object … we are at any time conscious of, we are always at the same time conscious of our own nature[.]” 
― Ludwig Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity

“The consciousness of the infinite is nothing else than the consciousness of the infinity of the consciousness; … in the consciousness of the infinite, the conscious subject has for his object the infinity of his own nature.”

My Magnificent Moments

  1. In Italy, watching a glass blower turn a glob of molten glass into a red Stallion right before my eyes!  MAGIC.
  2. Germany.  Sailing with Geri on our river cruise, the Rhine river, watching the sunset at 10:00 at night.  Glass of wine in hand sitting on the open air top deck of the riverboat. Having a cell phone conversation with my daughter, Amanda, back home in Texas.  Telling her about all the castles we saw on the river and about how our bike riding along the river reminded me so much of the Sound of Music bike ride that I was singing the song as we rode!
  3. The Top of Europe, the Swiss Alps.   Walking on the top of the Alps [bitter cold and snowing in July] then going down to the bottom of a 900 meter [think almost three Empire State buildings] glacier that was carved out circa 1890.  Inside the glacier the temperature was zero and we walked through the ice tunnel looking at all the magnificent ice carvings these Italian wood carvers made 127 years ago.  And they are still there, frozen in time for the people in the 21st century to look at and marvel.
  4. In my youth, watching both my children being born!
  5. Hawaii.  Climbing up Diamond Head Volcano with Geri on our honeymoon.  We get to the top and marvel at the ocean and beauty all around.  Then it hits me.  Where is the volcano we just climbed?  All i see is a long circle of mountains on the horizon.  Then I get it.  We are inside the volcano!  We parked the car inside the volcano then climbed endless stairways to the top.  The circle of mountains on the horizon IS THE VOLCANO.  Yes, it's that big! 

  1. Texas.  Playing with my granddaughters when they were toddlers.
  2. Colorado.  Eight ski trips.  Skiing China Bowl in a blizzard.  Getting stuck on the mountain in a white out.  Visibility near zero.  We didn't even know which way was down.  Worked our way trying to listen for people when we suddenly heard them overhead talking.  We knew there was a ski lift above us.  So we skied slowly down the mountain using the voices above for our bearing until we finally cleared the white out at the base of the mountain.
  3. Touring the United States by motorcycle.  Toured every state except North Dakota in the contiguous United States.  Exhilarating, exciting, nothing like it.  Hundreds of memories.  Rode motorcycles for 40 years off and on.  Always felt like I was a cowboy touring out West.
  4. First hand witnessed the "Bubble Net" feeding of Humpback whales on an Alaskan whale watching tour.
