Barry Jünemann | Faith is the graveyard of many truths

"And still, no one knows! And the truth remains hidden. Faith is the graveyard of many truths. And the mortician is the system of the self-appointed rulers of this earth. However, people often decorate it with the flowers of ignorance! Faith is the most dangerous instrument of the system since ancient Babylon.... and nobody notices it!"

Bertrand Russell | on the threshold of a Golden Age

"It is possible that mankind is on the threshold of a Golden Age: but, if so, it will be necessary first to slay the dragon that guards the door, and that dragon is religion."

Phillip Chapman Lesh | devery place we played was church

Gary Greenberg | The band was the high priest

"it was not just a concert. It was a place of worship. The band was the high priest, the songs the liturgy, the dancing the prayer, the audience the congregation. Out of these simple ingredients we created a tradition and enacted a ritual that was at once entirely familiar and thoroughly mysterious."

Judy Mowatt | It was a crusade, it was a mission

"It was a crusade, it was a mission. We were like sentinels, like lights. ON TOUR THE SHOWS WERE LIKE CHURCH; Bob delivering the sermon. There were mixed emotions in the audience: you see people literally crying, people in a frenzy, on A SPIRITUAL HIGH ... These concerts were powerful and highly spiritual. There was a power that pulled you there. It was a clean feeling ... For months and maybe years it stays with you"

Judy Mowatt

Samuel | Whenever the spirit from God

"Whenever the spirit from God came on Saul, David would take up his lyre and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him."

Anton Szandor LaVey | Today’s Satanic bands

„Today’s Satanic bands are the vehicle of choice for millions of young people. If they encourage a study of real Satanism, I’m all for them. Now, there are many influential groups who know Satanism and aren’t afraid to espouse it—bands like King Diamond, The Electric Hellfire Club, Acheron, Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails—the list is long. I have no use for the bands who take the Devil’s name, but are too chickenshit to play the Devil’s game. They’re usually too stupid to present any argument concerning Satanism. Instead, when put to the question, they cop out by answering: “Yeah—I was into that shit but not now. Don’t ask me about it because there’s no point in talking about it.” There are Satanic bands and there are “Satanic” bands.“

Prof. Dr. Markus Gabriel | massive misalignment in our current worldview

"I actually see a massive misalignment in our current worldview because natural science and technology, represented these days by virology and computer simulations, have taken the former place of religion. In short, essentially at the end of the day, engaging in unsubstantiated metaphysics. However, based on facts. Yes, the natural sciences are now part of the standard realm of ideology, and ideology today means, that you can lie with the facts..."
