Theology is never any help; it is searching in a dark cellar at midnight for a black cat that isn't there. Theologians can persuade themselves of anything.
Robert A. Heinlein

Marquis de Sade
For centuries, theologians have been explaining the unknowable in terms of the-not-worth-knowing.
H. L. Mencken
The Christian leaders of the future have to be theologians, persons who know the heart of God and are trained - through prayer, study, and careful analysis - to manifest the divine event of God's saving work in the midst of the many seemingly random events of their time.
I am baffled by the way sophisticated theologians who know Adam and Eve never existed still keep talking about it.
It is an old habit with theologians to beat the living with the bones of the dead.
Robert Green Ingersoll

Daniel J. Boorstin
