Mega-Thread Of Outrageous, Ridiculous, and Absurd Quotes

112 posts in this topic

I want to create a database of the most egregiously wrong quotes spoken by mankind throughout our long history.

The point here is to highlight how easily the mind fools itself due to ignorance, arrogance, self-bias, and self-deception.

These can be quotes from science, philosophy, religion, politics, economics, etc.


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

"Our new government is the first in the history of the world to be founded upon the great physical, philosophical, and moral truth that the negro is not equal to the white man. That slavery -- subordination to the superior race -- is his natural and normal condition."

-- Alexander Stephens, VP of the US Confederacy

"The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."

-- John Ehrlichman, Domestic Policy Chief for Nixon

''Our strength consists in our speed and in our brutality. Genghis Khan led millions of women and children to slaughter -- with premeditation and a happy heart. History sees in him solely the founder of a state. It's a matter of indifference to me what a weak western European civilization will say about me.

I have issued the command -- and I'll have anybody who utters but one word of criticism executed by a firing squad -- that our war aim does not consist in reaching certain lines but in the physical destruction of the enemy. Accordingly, I have placed my death-head formations in readiness -- for the present only in the East -- with orders to them to send to death mercilessly and without compassion, men, women, and children of Polish derivation and language. Only thus shall we gain the living space (Lebensraum) which we need. Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?"

                               -- Adolf Hitler's Obersalzberg Speech, 22 August 1939, a week before the German invasion of Poland.
