Atheism Quotes and Sayings - Page 2
Creationists make it sound like a ‘theory’ is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night
— Isaac Asimov
And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence.

Atheists do not believe in nothing, they simply do not believe. We are people who need proof in order to believe. Maybe this is because we never saw faith as something we needed in the past, or maybe we have had faith and were disappointed, but we find it more difficult to trust than other people. We are often branded as totally distrusting, but I believe the truth of all atheists is that we are cautious and rational. We have felt disappointment, we have seen it’s effects and decided by ourselves that this is not something worth going through unless there is proof that religion is real. I admire those with faith, it is an honorable quality, but just one that in my heart of hearts I cannot embrace.
What we atheists have to do is to
Incorporate atheism as a religion
And see whether the government
Sues the theists under blasphemy
For insulting atheism.
Lighthouses are more helpful than churches.
- Benjamin Franklin
I don’t believe in God. My god is patriotism. Teach a man to be a good citizen and you have solved the problem of life.

It turned out I was pretty good in science. But again, because of the small budget, in science class we couldn’t afford to do experiments in order to prove theories. We just believed everything.

- George Carlin
I tried choosing a religion once. It was a lot like choosing a straw for my drink. There were so many types and colors. I stood there trying to decide which was best; bendy straws, swirly ones, light up straws, really long straws, etc. After a while I just said f**k it and walked away with my drink. It still tasted the same without a straw.
God doesn’t believe in atheists, therefore atheists do not exist.
For Jake Arana … My friend I guess you are wrong … The main reason for a human to believe in a God or stick to a religion is FEAR …fear of the unknown and the hope to live forever someway.
If God was real, he would have stopped the oil spill, the school shootouts, world hunger, and racism.
Since he created all, didn’t he? He is supposed to be good, and nice? What if he is weak, or cruel?
Or. Maybe he doesn’t exist!!
