Tom has also said:

Faith is often little more that an ego’s attachment to the need and expectation of outside help.

I like this part in which Tom insists MBT is a "model"

." I don't come with dogma. I don't come with, “Here’s the way you have to think about things.” I come with a structure basically. Here’s a way of looking at reality. It’s a model. I tell people,”Don't believe the model. The model is not reality. The model is just a model. It’s a bunch of metaphors that help you put ideas and constructs, (abstract thoughts) into a structure; so that you can understand how things fit together.” That's what the model does. The model should explain the data that you collect in your own experience. That's really what My Big TOE is. It’s a model of reality, and it covers the objective as well as the subjective. So your subjective experience can be explained and understood in terms of this model."
