    From the Congressional Record, 1834. On The Deist's Immortality. By Lysander Spooner.

    Compared with these [Deist] views and prospects, how puerile is the heaven of Christians--how enervating to the mind their languishing and dreamy longings after a monotonous and unnatural bliss. Many of them do indeed believe in the eternal progress of the soul-but they obtain not this belief from the Bible. It was the much scoffed at theology of reason and nature, that taught to them this doctrine, which is, above all others connected with the future, valuable to man while here, and honorable to Deity.

    Just wondering if there's an opinion. After all, Congress says.


    Whether God exists or does not exist, He has come to rank among the most sublime and useless truths.--Denis Diderot
