I’m an Atheist. Yes, I capitalize it just like anyone else would capitalize their religion or nationality or name. It’s a part of who I am and serves just as much to identify me as who I am like the fact that I’m American who speaks French and some German and who likes Chinese and African food. My parents and most of my family are Catholic, the country I live in is Christian, and here I am, a lonely Atheist isolated in the middle of the United States under the thumb of George Dubya and his Fundamentalist followers. This page is a place for me to express myself and seek refuge in the communities of other Atheists. It’s also a place where others can find websites devoted to Atheism so that they might learn something about this minority. I hope to educate above all and to feel safer as a result. The more people know about Atheists and Atheism, perhaps the less they’ll call us Satanists, immoral or terrorists. This is my Atheist page; this is about me.

Atheist Quotes

I collect quotes on all subjects, and I decided to collect my Atheist quotes here since this place made sense for them. Newer ones will go at the top when I find them.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.       -Stephen Roberts

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.       -Seneca the younger 4 BCE-65 CE

Men never commit evil so fully and joyfully as when they do it for religious convictions.       -Blaise Pascal

I still say that a church steeple with a lightning rod on top shows a lack of confidence.       -Doug McLeod

The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one.       -George Bernard Shaw

Philosophy is questions that may never be answered. Religion is answers that may never be questioned.       -Unknown

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?       -Epicurus

Don’t pray in my school, and I won’t think in your church.       -Unknown

You can’t convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it’s based on a deep-seated need to believe.       -Carl Sagan

Blind faith is an ironic gift to return to the Creator of human intelligence.       -Unknown

There was once a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time was called the Dark Ages.       -Richard Lederer (Anguished English)

The church says the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the church.       -Ferdinand Magellan

I do not think that it is necessary to believe that the same God who has given us our senses, reason, and intelligence wished us to abandon their use, giving us by some other means the information that we could gain through them.       -Galileo Galilei

We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.       -H.L. Mencken

A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.       -Albert Einstein

We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes.       -Gene Roddenberry

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.       -Steven Weinberg

But I don’t have to know an answer. I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose–which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell, possibly. It doesn’t frighten me.       -Richard Feynman

Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet.       -Napoleon Bonaparte

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike.       -Delos B. McKown

It ain’t the parts of the Bible that I can’t understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand.       -Mark Twain (?)

As people become more intelligent, they care less for preachers and more for teachers.       -Robert G. Ingersoll

Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man–living in the sky–who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ‘til the end of time! But he loves you.       -George Carlin

Which is it, is man one of God’s blunders or is God one of man’s?       -Friedrich Nietzche

The easy confidence with which I know another man’s religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also.       -Mark Twain

Creation science has not entered the curriculum for a reason so simple and so basic that we often forget to mention it: because it is false, and because good teachers understand exactly why it is false. What could be more destructive of that most fragile yet most precious commodity in our entire intellectual heritage–good teaching–than a bill forcing honorable teachers to sully their sacred trust by granting equal treatment to a doctrine not only known to be false but calculated to undermine any general understanding of science as an enterprise?       -Stephen Jay Gould

You’re basically killing each other to see who’s got the better imaginary friend.       -Richard Jeni

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.       -Carl Sagan

Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a God superior to themselves. Most Gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child.       -Robert A. Heinlein

I have examined all the known superstitions of the world, and I do not find in our particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology.       -Thomas Jefferson

An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An Atheist believes that a deed must be done instead of a prayer said. An Atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanquished, war eliminated.       -Madalyn Murray O’Hair

We must conduct research and then accept the results. If they don’t stand up to experimentation, Buddha’s own words must be rejected.       -Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama (1988)

People who don’t like their beliefs being laughed at shouldn’t have such funny beliefs.       -Unknown

He that will not reason is a bigot; he that cannot reason is a fool; he that dares not reason is a slave.       -William Drummond

Two hands working can do more than a thousand clasped in prayer.       -Anonymous

The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshiped anything but himself.       -Richard Francis Burton (1821-1890)

Be thankful that you have a life, and forsake your vain and presumptuous desire for a second one.       -Richard Dawkins

The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely to be preferred to the presence of those who think they’ve found it.       -Terry Pratchett

The sailor does not pray for wind, he learns to sail.       -Gustaf Lindborg

Atheism is more than just the knowledge that gods do not exist, and that religion is either a mistake or fraud. Atheism is an attitude, a frame of mind that looks at the world objectively, fearlessly, always trying to understand all things as a part of nature.       -Carl Sagan

Jesus’ last words on the cross, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” hardly seem like the words of a man who planned it that way. It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure there is something wrong here.       -Donald Morgan

Religion is unusual among divisible labels in being spectacularly unnecessary. If religious beliefs had any evidence going for them, we might have to respect them in spite of their concomitant unpleasantness. But there is no such evidence. To label people as death-deserving enemies because of disagreements about real world politics is bad enough. To do the same for disagreements about a delusional world inhabited by archangels, demons and imaginary friends is ludicrously tragic.       -Richard Dawkins

You keep believing, I’ll keep evolving.       -Bumper sticker

If the Bible is mistaken in telling us where we came from, how can we trust it to tell us where we’re going?       -Justin Brown (?)

“There are no atheists in foxholes” isn’t an argument against atheism, it’s an argument against foxholes.       -James Morrow

The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason.       -Benjamin Franklin

The Governments of the United States is in no sense founded on the Christian religion.       -John Adams, 2nd president of the US

To explain the unknown by the known is a logical procedure; to explain the known by the unknown is a form of theological lunacy.       -David Brooks (The Necessity of Atheism)

So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence.       -Bertrand Russell

Pray to God, but keep rowing to shore.       -Russian Proverb

The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance…logic can be happily tossed out the window.       -Stephen King

Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a whiff of science or a dose of common sense.       -Chapman Cohen

Why should I allow that same God to tell me how to raise my kids, who had to drown His own?       -Robert G. Ingersoll

God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.       -Voltaire

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.       -Thomas Paine

Blasphemy is a victimless crime.       -Unknown

The inspiration of the bible depends on the ignorance of the person who reads it.       -Robert G. Ingersoll

Praying is like a rocking chair–it’ll give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.       -Gypsy Rose Lee

Life is but a momentary glimpse of the wonder of the astonishing universe, and it is sad to see so many dreaming it away on spiritual fantasy.       -Carl Sagan

“I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”       -Douglas Adams

Koranic teaching still insists that the sun moves around the earth. How can we advance when they teach things like that?       -Taslima Nasrin

Christianity did not come with tidings of great joy, but with a message of eternal grief. It came with the threat of everlasting torture on its lips. It meant war on earth and perdition hereafter.       -Robert G. Ingersoll

If God exists, I hope he has a good excuse.       -Woody Allen

If Jesus had been killed 20 years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little Electric Chairs around their necks instead of crosses.       -Lenny Bruce

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.       -Karl Marx

So you really think that God would plant a bunch of bones in the earth to test your faith? Either you’re in denial or God has some serious self-esteem issues.       -Coral Yoshi

Without God, life is everything.       -Rev. Ron

Religion does three things quite effectively: divides people, controls people, deludes people.       -Carlespie Mary Alice McKinney

History teaches us that no other cause has brought more death than the word of god.       -Giulian Buzila

Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition.       -Isaac Asimov

Religious faith not only lacks evidence, its independence from evidence is its pride and joy, shouted from the rooftops.       -Richard Dawkins

Faith is to the human what sand is to the ostrich.       -Unknown

Believing there is no God gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-O, and all the other things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have.       -Penn Jillette

God has always resembled his creators. He hated and loved what they hated and loved and he was invariably found on the side of those in power. Most of the gods were pleased with sacrifice, and the smell of innocent blood has ever been considered a divine perfume.       -Robert G. Ingersoll

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime; give a man religion and he will die praying for a fish.       -Unknown

Doesn’t it bother you that you put more logical thought into choosing a car than you do in choosing a god?       -Unknown

“Faith” means not wanting to know what is true.       -Friedrich Nietzsche

I refuse to believe in a god that would send me to hell just for not believing in him.       -Bob Snuka

Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies.       -Friedrich Nietzsche

Why would some all powerful being create creatures capable of reason and then demand that they act in a manner contrary to their creation?       -Josh Charles

One man’s theology is another man’s belly laugh.       -Robert A. Heinlein

As long as you need an external entity to give credit to for wonderful things that happen to you or to blame for ugly things that happen to you, you need God.       -Ravikiran R

Those who believe absurdities will commit atrocities.       -Voltaire

When I think of all the harm the Bible has done, I despair of ever writing anything to equal it.       -Oscar Wilde

Man created God in his image: intolerant, sexist, homophobic and violent.       -Unknown

There are three kinds of people: those who seek the truth as revealed by a higher authority; those who seek the truth as defined by rational enquiry; and the vast majority, who believe whatever they find convenient.       -Richard Van Harris

As far as I can tell from studying the scriptures, all you do is heaven is pretty much just sit around all day and praise the Lord. I don’t know about you, but I think that after the first, oh I don’t know, 50,000,000 years of that I’d start to get a little bored.       -Rick Reynolds

Pray, v.: to ask that the laws of the universe be annulled on behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy.       -Ambrose Bierce

If you wind up with a boring, miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest or some guy on TV telling you how to do your shit, then YOU DESERVE IT.       -Frank Zappa

It has served us well, this myth of Christ.       -Pope Leo X

I am patient with stupidity, but not with those who are proud of it.       -Edith Stilwell

Take from the church the miraculous, the supernatural, the incomprehensible, the unreasonable, the impossible, the unknowable, the absurd, and nothing but a vacuum remains.       -Robert G. Ingersoll

Religion was created to calm the weak and fearful about death, and allow them to accept it without panic. Unfortunately, religion will probably exist until the day we can extend human life. Thankfully, science is fast approaching that day.       -Unknown

The existence of G W Bush is proof against intelligent design.       -Charles Stonehouse V

Living in fear of judgement is not how I will spend my life. Realizing that this life is all I get and your life is all you get, brings a need to make the best of all possible.       -Michael Stanton

Faith must be enforced by reason. When faith becomes blind it dies.       -Gandhi

Life is a vacation from two eternities, who wants to waste those precious years worrying about what happens when you go back to forever?       -William S. Burroughs

The most common explanation given for death and destruction attributed to “Acts of God” is that God is unknowable and beyond human understanding. That also happens to be the very best description there is for what does not exist.       -Ed Martin

If triangles had a god, he would have three sides.       -Unknown

Atheism is a non-prophet organization.       -Unknown

They said God was on high and he controlled the world and therefore we must pray against Satan. Well, if God controls the world, he controls Satan. For me, religion was full of misstatements and reaches of logic that I just couldn’t agree with.       -Gene Roddenberry

Gods are children’s blankets that get carried over into adulthood.       -James Randi

The Pope doesn’t believe in God; did you ever see a conjurer who believed in Magic?       -Coluche

God made me an atheist.       -Unknown

If I wanted to spend my life believing in something–it would be myself.       -Andrew Simpson

He who says “The United States is a Christian nation founded upon Christian principles and beliefs” is woefully ignorant of history. The United States was founded by Deists, and the puritan settlers were but one immigrant group among many.       -?? (From website: “44th president Dem-to-be-named-later United States”)

Hell would be to have to spend eternity in a Heaven with those who are sure they are going there.       -Ed Martin

Religion, n.: A daughter of Hope and Fear, explaining to Ignorance the nature of the Unknowable.       -Ambrose Bierce

Religions are conclusions for which the facts of nature supply no major premises.       -Ambrose Bierce

Born right the first time.       -Bumper sticker

Often a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other parts of the world, about the motions and orbits of the stars and even their sizes and distances…and this knowledge holds with certainty from reason and experience. It is thus offensive and disgraceful for an unbeliever to hear a Christian talk nonsense about such things, claiming that what he is saying is based in Scripture. We should do all that we can to avoid such an embarrassing situation, which people see as ignorance in the Christian and laugh to scorn.       -St. Augustine

If Atheism is a religion then health is a disease.       -Clark Adams

When a man is freed of religion, he has a better chance to live a normal and wholesome life.       -Sigmund Freud

A man can live without air for minutes, water for days, food for weeks, and answers forever.       -Unknown

You don’t count the dead when god’s on your side.       -Bob Dylan

My sister once claimed she spun out of control into oncoming traffic. When she looked up, she was in the opposite lane and unharmed. She said that the hand of God moved her from one lane into the other–to save her. I replied, “If the hand of God cannot prevent genocide in Rwanda, then it cannot move you so as to save your life.       -Joe (no last name given)

Man invented God to deal with the concept of infinity.       -Doon (?)

God is like Santa Claus; a great, amazing and lovely person but sadly untrue.       -Mimoun Raddahi

If atheism is a religion, then not playing cards is a hobby.       -Unknown

How difficult would it be for 11 men to hang a traitor, move a boulder, remove a body, and replace said boulder within a period of three days?       -Cogito

Just remember that there is a big difference between kneeling down and bending over.       -Frank Zappa

Children are naive–they trust everyone. School is bad enough, but if you put a child anywhere in the vicinity of a church, you’re asking for trouble.       -Frank Zappa

Existentialism isn’t so atheistic that it wears itself out showing that God doesn’t exist. Rather, it declares that even if God did exist, that would change nothing.       -Jean-Paul Sartre

Today’s wars are not about good vs. bad–they are about “your” good vs. my good. Religion is perhaps the most potent meme that creates, fosters and justifies these divisions.       -Satish Babu

I believe that religion, generally speaking, has been a curse to mankind–that its modest and greatly overestimated services on the ethical side have been more than overcome by the damage it has done to clear and honest thinking.       -H.L. Mencken

Religion is a purely man-made form of power and authority…for those who control it, of course. Just ask yourself what the ten commandments are.       -Stelios

Religion is a limitation on your freedom.       -Mimoun Raddahi

If God doesn’t believe in other gods, then why should I?       -Apollonius of Elusia

Religion is man-made to assist in controlling the weak minded individuals because during times of atrocity and despair they feel strength in numbers.       -Benito II DUCA Mussolini

The religions of mankind must be classed among the mass-delusions of this kind. No one, needless to say, who shares a delusion ever recognizes it as such. Civilization and Its Discontents.       -Sigmund Freud

Man was created by water to carry it uphill.       -Unknown

God is exactly where we put him and what we make him out to be.       -David Schindler

The World is divided into armed camps ready to commit genocide just because we can’t agree on whose fairy tales to believe.       -Ed Krebs

Creationism, perhaps the most pernicious of the intellectual perversions now afflicting the American public.       -Sir Arthur C. Clarke

As we become more sophisticated we create more sophisticated demons, devils, and gods. Religion is the closet where these boogeymen reside.       -R.P. Boylan

What have been [Christianity’s] fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.       -James Madison 1785

All churches beat the devil good, but they are all very careful not to kill him!       -Wilfredo Hernandez

As stated many time: “Those whom have faith are happier than those without.” Of course this is true! Have you never heard, “Ignorance is bliss”?       -Unknown

More people have died in the name of Christ than for any other reason–the Inquisition, Crusades, witch hunts, etc. God must be spinning in his grave.       -Anonymous

Adam and Eve had Cain and Abel. Cain slew Abel. Adam, Eve, and Cain…I’d say Eve was pretty busy.       -Unknown

God is a concept by which we measure our pain.       -John Lennon

You ever notice how people who believe in Creationism look really unevolved? You ever notice that? Eyes real close together, eyebrow ridges, big furry hands and feet. “I believe God created me in one day.” Yeah, looks like He rushed it.       -Bill Hicks

A few years ago we finally persuaded psychiatrists to remove homosexuality from the list of recognized disorders. Maybe it’s time we started lobbying them to add belief in a God to the list. Belief in an angry, intolerant one anyway. I demand assurances that a given religion will not cause or potentiate mass homicidal psychosis or priestly pedophlia before we let it indoctrinate helpless children and vulnerable adults. Bloodthirsty, authoritarian theology threatens Canada as much as tobacco, obesity and booze put together. It endangers our planet more than global warming, nuclear winter or rogue asteroids.       -H.L. Mencken

The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.       -Thomas Jefferson

My religion is to do good.       -Thomas Paine

It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.       -Sir Arthur C. Clarke

In Nature, there are neither rewards nor punishments, there are consequences.       -Robert G Ingersoll

He who feels pricked, must first have been a bubble.       -Lao Tzu

Religion is comparable to a childhood neurosis.       -Sigmund Freud

Creationists don’t want equal time; they want all the time.       -Isaac Asimov

Faith is like a leash to a dog; it keeps the target from ever reaching its true potential.       -Mike Lionheart

If God exists, and is the benevolent being who loves everyone and forgives all who seek forgiveness, as he is foretold in the Bible, why would he sanction the murder of thousands of his own creators in his name?       -Unknown

Religion is a lot like NASCAR, something for the ignorant masses to believe in.       -Haywood Newkirk

Children are born without religion. Don’t give them your neuroses.       -Nick Kinnan

Faith is the fabric of psychosis.       -B. Smith

Every national church or religion has established itself by pretending some special mission from God, communicated to certain individuals. The Jews have their Moses; the Christians have their Jesus Christ, their apostles and saints; and the Turks their Ma.       -Thomas Paine

Religion originates in the child’s and young mankind’s fears and need for help. It cannot be otherwise.       -Sigmund Freud

A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it is not open.       -Frank Zappa

The defense against childish helplessness is what lends its characteristic features to the adult’s reaction to the helplessness which he has to acknowledge–a reaction which is precisely the formation of religion.       -Sigmund Freud

All religions are cults of varying degrees.       -Daryl Elliott

The church has always been willing to swap off treasures in heaven for cash down.       -Robert Green Ingersoll

When we have answered the last question, we will have no more need to dignify our ignorance with the name “God.”       -Sebastian Faulks

If the people I see going to church go to heaven then I don’t think I choose to be in that heaven. I’d rather take a dirt nap.       -Unknown

The fact that there are those who absolutely, without any doubt believe in the existence of God, I take as evidence that he does not.       -J. Suppasan

Faith is believing what you know ain’t so.       -Mark Twain

Christians worship a dead Jew on a stick.       -George Carlin

An atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.       -John Buchan

All religions are founded on the fear of the many and the cleverness of the few.       -Stendhal

Most thinking people agree with the need for mandatory school prayer. What rankles them is the lack of algebra instruction in church.       -William Weil

A newborn child grabs after the mother’s chest. A confused human does the same for religion.       -Unknown

The death of dogma is the birth of reality.       -Kant

Spirituality is not religion. Religion divides people. Belief in something unites them.       -Rady in “Flight of the Phoenix”

No philosophy, no religion, has ever brought so glad a message to the world as this good news of Atheism.       -Annie Wood Besant

America is not a Christian nation. Period. Our Constitution never derived from the paranoid yammerings of that otherwise compassionate cult leader who fucking died in the Middle Eastern desert 3000 [sic] years ago.       -Athena (no last name given)

Those historical residues have helped us to view religious teachings, as it were, as neurotic relics, and we may now argue that the time has probably come, as it does in an analytic treatment, for replacing the effects of repression by the results of the rational operation of the intellect.       -Sigmund Freud

Religion would thus be the universal obsessional neurosis of humanity.       -Sigmund Freud

The United States is a Christian nation founded upon Christian principles and beliefs.       -George W. Bush
