quotes on religion

"One man's theology is another man's belly laugh."
Robert Heinlein
"I cannot be angry at God, in whom I do not believe."
Simone de Beauvoir
"Religion is intensely tribalistic. A devout Christian or
Muslim doesn't say one religion is as good as another."
E.O. Wilson
"Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a whiff
of science or a dose of common sense."
Chapman Cohen
"To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always
been premature, and it remains premature today."
Isaac Asimov
"I do not feel obligated to believe that the same God who has endowed us with
sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use."
Galileo Galilei



Classic Christian quote of the day:
"I don't see science anywhere, but I see God everywhere."

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

"The fact than an opinion has been widely held is no evidence that it is not utterly absurd; indeed, in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a wide-spread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible."
Bertrand Russell

"Science, rather than mysticism, is the key to understanding the universe and ourselves."
David Mills

"Christians never stop to consider that they are in just as much danger of going to a Muslim hell as I, as an atheist, am in danger of going to the Christian hell."
David Mills

"Science may explore human origins and geologic history of Earth. In this regard, science has incontrovertibly proven that the Book of Genesis is utter mythology. So while, on esoteric philosophical grounds, I hesitate to claim absolute proof of a god's nonexistence, I will claim proof that the Bible is not "The Word of God" because much of it has been shown by science to be false."
David Mills


"The atheist, by merely being in touch with reality, appears shamefully out of touch
with the fantasy life of his neighbors."
Sam Harris

"Forgive, O Lord, my little jokes on Thee
And I'll forgive Thy great big one on me."
Robert Frost

"Blind faith is an ironic gift to return to the Creator of human intelligence." 
Author unknown

"Do not let yourself be deceived: great intellects are skeptical."
Friedrich Nietzsche

"Religion consists in a set of things which the average man thinks he believes
and wishes he was certain of."
Mark Twain

"We are here and it is now. Further than that, all human knowledge is moonshine."
H.L. Mencken

"After your death you will be what you were before your birth."
Arthur Schopenhauer

"Fear of death was the first thing on earth to make the gods."

"I don't know about God...the only things I know are what
I see, hear, feel and smell."
Gunther Grass

"Religion is a collective insanity."
"Christianity is the complete negation of common sense and sound reason."
Mikhail Bakunin

"Religion is an illusion of childhood, outgrown under proper education."
Auguste Comte

"Religion, in short, is a monumental chapter in the history of human egotism."
William James

Steve Habay
