Quotes from the "Founding Fathers" on religion

These were collected by Bill Perdue, I copied them from a comment he made on AlterNet. -JBH

-----------------------------------

"I have examined all the known superstitions of the Word, and I do not find in our

particular superstition of Christianity one redeeming feature. They are all alike, founded on fables and mythology. Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and…

Favorite Robert Heinlein Quotes

"The most preposterous notion that H. sapiens has ever dreamed up is the the Lord God of Creation, Shaper and Ruler of all the Universes, wants the saccharine adoration of His creatures, can be swayed by their prayers, and becomes petulant if He does not receive this flattery. Yet this absurd fantasy, without a shred of evidence to bolster it, pays all the expenses of the oldest, largest, and least productive industry in all history."

"God is omnipotent, omniscient, and…

Quotes from Thomas Jefferson

I cannot take credit for this compilation of quotes from Thomas Jefferson. I found it in the comments section of an article on Alternet.

===================================

Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity.

-Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782



But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there…

Heaven On It's Head

 

 

"In a world that is really upside down, the true is a moment of the false."- Guy Debord, Society of the Spectacle

 

What is an interesting quandary amid Christians is the heaven factor. It appears everyone wants to go; however, no one's in a rush to get there; a spark of revelation; could be.…

The Wisdom of Frank Zappa

I was just perusing positiveatheism.org when I came upon the following. I always knew (especially from his testimony on Capitol Hill regarding the "suggestive lyrics" foofaraw that Zappa was intelligent and well-spoken, but this just about says it all regarding the whole god and religion kick:



The whole foundation of Christianity is based on the idea that intellectualism is the work of the Devil. Remember the apple on the tree? Okay, it was the Tree of Knowledge. "You eat this… Continue

My Response And Thoughs On Kirk Camerons Video "Origin Into Schools"

1. - Why is Atheism such a bad thing? Atheists: never burned others at the stake, never started/engaged in a Crusade and just want to be left alone for the most part. However with the threat of FORCED CONVERSION, anyone would be pissed and come out swinging. Likewise, do you think we would just allow you to publicly deface our belief and ESPECIALLY with such non-sense as you, Kirk Cameron, have presented as "fact"? Why do Extremists think Atheism is such a threat to their… Continue

Adam & Eve

Adam and Eve; God created them with “free will”. Problem being that he didn’t give them intelligence to choose their all-powerful creator, whom they knew personally, and left them ignorant enough to choose to believe a talking snake instead. Since god knew this would all happen and created them as they were anyway, including the creation of angels that would rebel and deceive mankind, it is clear that this god intentionally wanted mankind to sin and not choose him. Why else would he create… Continue

Some of my favorite quotes

"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 willing, nor able? Then why call him God"



Epicurus (341-270BC)



Death does not concern us, because as long as we exist, death is not here. And when it does come, we no longer exist.



Epicurus (341-270BC)



It is folly for a man to pray to the gods… Continue
