霍尔巴赫男爵(Baron d'Holbach)名言

To discover the true principles of Morality, men have no need of theology, of revelation, or of gods: They have need only of common sense.

要发现道德的真正原则,人们不需要神学、启示或神:他们只需要常识。

霍尔巴赫男爵

When we examine the opinions of men, we find that nothing is more uncommon than common sense; or, in other words, they lack judgment to discover plain truths or to reject absurdities and palpable contradictions.

当我们审视人们的观点时,我们发现没有什么比常识更不寻常的了;或者,换句话说,他们缺乏发现简单真理或拒绝荒谬和明显矛盾的判断力。

霍尔巴赫男爵

Nothing can be more contrary to religion and the clergy than reason and common sense.

没有什么比理性和常识更违背宗教和神职人员的了。

霍尔巴赫男爵

If God be an infinite being, there cannot be, either in the present or future world, any relative proportion between man and his God. Thus, the idea of God can never enter the human mind.

如果上帝是一个无限的存在,那么在现在或未来的世界里,人和他的上帝之间就不可能有任何相对的比例。因此,上帝的观念永远不会进入人的头脑。

霍尔巴赫男爵

Religion unites man with God, or forms a communication between them; yet do they not say, 'God is infinite?' If God be infinite, no finite being can have communication or relation with him.

宗教把人与神联系在一起,或形成人与神之间的交流;他们岂不是说,神是无限的吗?神是无限的,就没有有限的人能与他沟通,也没有关系。
