    "What is mind? No matter. What is matter? Never mind."
That's what Bertrand Russell's grandmother taught him repeatedly about metaphysics which he found quite funny until one day it started to bore him - like the believe in the existence of God. Materialism of the [anglican] West makes people believe that they could base their atheism on aristotelean logic. As far as I know Russell (1872-1970) remained atheist even after Kurt Gödel showed in 1931 that any closed mathematical system, such as attempted in the book "Principia Mathematica" (1910-1913) by Russell and Whitehead, to base the foundations of mathematics on pure logic, must be incomplete.

"Nazism emerged from a nation unable to stabilize itself and degenerated to unforeseen limits of depravity. The policy of aggression in Washington has brought a comparable degree of scientific extermination and moral degeneracy."
-- Quote Bertrand Russell, Speech to the First Meeting of Members of the War Crimes Tribunal, London, 13-Nov-1966 [From Autobiography (Allena & Unwin, 1969), vol. III, pp. 215-16]

"Of the great religions of history, I prefer Buddhism, especially in its earliest forms, because it has had the smallest element of persecution."
-- Quote Bertrand Russell, What is an Agnostic?

"There is an artist imprisoned in each one of us. Let him loose to spread joy everywhere."
-- Quote Bertrand Russell, Last Essay: "1967".

"We must repudiate the degenerate conception of individual intelligence, which confuses open minds with empty ones."
-- Quote Bertrand Russell, Speech to the First Meeting of Members of the War Crimes Tribunal, London, 13-Nov-1966 [From Autobiography (Allen & Unwin, 1969), vol. III, pp. 215-16]
