We have heard talk enough. We have listened to all the drowsy, idealess, vapid sermons that we wish to hear. We have read your Bible and the works of your best minds. We have heard your prayers, your solemn groans and your reverential amens. All these amount to less than nothing. We want one fact. We beg at the doors of your churches for just one little fact. We pass our hats along your pews and under your pulpits and implore you for just one fact. We know all about your mouldy wonders and your stale miracles. We want a this year's fact. We ask only one. Give us one fact for charity. Your miracles are too ancient. The witnesses have been dead for nearly two thousand years.-- Robert Green Ingersoll, "The Gods" (1872)

Robert Ingersoll has influenced my life more than any other human being in history. I only wish I could express my gratitude towards him while he was still alive. He was truly a titan among humanity, and he will always be remembered.

"I am the inferior of any man whose rights I trample under foot. Men are not superior by reason of the accidents of race or color. They are superior who have the best heart...the best brain" Robert Green Ingersoll

Happy birthday to the man of whom Mark Twain once wrote: "The music of Bob Ingersoll's voice will sing through my memory always as the divinest that ever enchanted my ears. And I shall always see him as he stood that night on a dinner table in the midst of seven hundred frantic shouters, the most beautiful human creature that ever lived. You should have seen that house rise to its feet; and you should have heard the hurricane that followed. That's the only test. People may shout, clap their hands, stamp, wave their napkins -- but none other than a master can make them get up on their feet."

The novelist and poet, Chinua Achebe once said, "One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised." On the 114th anniversary of your death, I honour your memory, great intellect, generosity, wit and, most of all, the manner in which you never allowed yourself to succumb to compromise.

Remembering you on the anniversary of your death and wishing you were here today as your message is much needed. Though you were an agnostic, you held hope for immortality. Here's hoping you are "alive and well" somewhere in the cosmos and enjoying the love and company of those you hold dear.
