In Maynard’s opinion, “religion is basically a marketing plan to trick you to give 10 percent of income to some child-molesting fuckhead.” He says:

Religion is basically a marketing plan. They’re going to pass a plate in front of you, trick you into giving 10 percent of your income to some child-molesting fuckhead, or trick you into giving up your civil rights over some storybook.”


He also talked about his experience of the military army:

“When I joined the military I believed we’d found some kind of groove as far as world peace. We didn’t really have any major conflicts. We were going through a lot of growing pains as a nation. I don’t know that I would recommend active service right now. What I embraced is that warrior’s mindset. You’re competing against yourself and understanding that you have to be able to get into that mindset in certain situations. At the end of the day, you’re competing against yourself.”
