Is Epicurean Philosophy Cultish?

I am not pressuring any of you into testifying thoughtlessly and unreflectively in favour of those who say “this is true” for I have not laid down the law on anything, not even on matters concerning the gods, unless together with reasoning.

One thing only I ask of you, as I did also just now: do not, even if you should be somewhat indifferent and listless, be like passers-by in your approach to the writings, consulting each of them in a patchy fashion and omitting to read everything.

- Diogenes of Oinoanda (Martin Ferguson Smith) Fragment 30.
