Hello my friends on Atheist Nexus,
Glad to be a member in here:)
This my first discussion...and sorry if this has been discussed before.
I'm curious to know about your favorite atheist quotes..
about everything, science, ethics, morals, wisdom and any kind of quote that attracted you..
Here is my favorite one,
It sounds suspiciously like Martin Luther. He had a real hard-on about reason, called it "That damned whore," and railed against it on more than one occasion.
"He that will not reason is a bigot;
he that cannot reason is a fool;
and he that dare not reason is a slave." William Drummond
De omnibus disputandum (Everything is to be doubted) I don't know who this is attributed to.
I think he's comparing Stalin with the Christian god.
I thought it was hilarious!
"To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the loyal opposition." Woody Allen
"Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear." Thomas Jefferson
"The opposite of the religious fanatic is not the fanatical atheist but the gentle cynic who cares not whether there is a god or not." Eric Hoffer
Can we include bumper stickers? Here are some of the ones I've scribbled down that have caught my short attention span:
ATHEISM CURES RELIGIOUS TERRORISM
HAVE YOU THREATENED YOUR CHILDREN WITH ETERNAL DAMNATION TODAY?
DON'T PRAY IN OUR SCHOOL; I WON'T THINK IN YOUR CHURCH
WHAT SCHOOLS NEED IS A MOMENT OF SCIENCE
"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful"
-Seneca the Younger
