"1. The creation of the world is the most marvellous achievement imaginable
2. The merit of an achievement is the product of (a) its intrinsic quality, and (b) the ability of its creator.
3. The greater the disability (or handicap) of the creator, the more impressive the achievement.
4. The most formidable handicap for a creator would be nonexistence.
5. Therfore if we suppose that the universe is the product of an existent creator we can conceive a greater being - namely, one who created everything while not existing.
6. An existing God therefore would not be a being greater than which a greater cannot be conceived because an even more formidable and incredible creator would be a God which did not exist.
Ergo
God does not exist"
-Douglas Gasking

Not a direct atheist quote but the vatican's remarks aimed towards Dan Brown's readers was brilliant:

"Remember that this book is the work of fiction and full of historically unverifiable facts"...

He should have said that about the very book he believes is the the divine word of god.

"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

 

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