This quote is from the book "Gods Debris" by Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame).

Quote :
After a certain age most people are uncomfortable with new
ideas. That certain age varies by person, but if you’re over
fifty-five (mentally) you probably won’t enjoy this thought
experiment. If you’re eighty going on thirty-five, you might
like it. If you’re twenty-three, your odds of liking it are very
good.

I think we must all be very young (mentally) on these deist boards otherwise the discussions wouldn't interest us much.

"Some people die at 25 but aren't buried until they're 75."--attributed to Ben Franklin, but I can't verify it. If it was his, he'd have been an exception to his own adage. In fact, when I grew up, the common wisdom was that when you stopped learning you stopped thinking.

I'm a firm believer that brain atrophy is directly proportional to disuse.

God's Debris is a great book. Highly recommended. It's so good that when I loaned it out, I never got it back.

It's not necessarily a deistic book, but Scott Adams is an entertaining read.

BTW, what's the thought experiment he's referring to?
