"We are told in the Pentateuch, that god, the father of us all, gave
thousands of maidens, after having killed their fathers, their mothers,
and their brothers, to satisfy the brutal lusts of savage men. If there
be a god, I pray him to write in his book, opposite my name, that I
denied this lie for him."
[Robert G. Ingersoll, "A Few Reasons for
Doubting the Inspiration of the Bible"]
