„Bez vědomí by problém duch-tělo byl mnohem méně zajímavý. S vědomím se zdá beznadějný.“

—  Thomas Nagel

„I don’t want there to be a God; I don’t want the universe to be like that.“

—  Thomas Nagel
Context: In speaking of the fear of religion, I don’t mean to refer to the entirely reasonable hostility toward certain established religions and religious institutions, in virtue of their objectionable moral doctrines, social policies, and political influence. Nor am I referring to the association of many religious beliefs with superstition and the acceptance of evident empirical falsehoods. I am talking about something much deeper—namely, the fear of religion itself. I speak from experience, being strongly subject to this fear myself: I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers. It isn’t just that I don’t believe in God and, naturally, hope that I’m right in my belief. It’s that I hope there is no God! I don’t want there to be a God; I don’t want the universe to be like that. The Last Word, Oxford University Press, 1997, pp. 130-131.
