The Atheist's Bible: An Illustrious Collection of Irreverent Thoughts
The Atheist Bible is a handy little book that consists of quotes from mostly atheist or agnostics and some other popular people such as Oscar Wilde, Ernest Hemingway, Ian McKellen, Albert Einstein etc.
Some memorable quotes from the book:
"Perhaps our role on this planet is not to worship God but to create Him."
ARTHUR C. CLARKE
"As for me, I've long resolved not to think whether man created God or God man."
"Do you think I am superstitious? I am a super-atheist."
MOHANDAS K. GANDHI
"We shall tell ourselves that it would be very nice if there were a God who created the world and was a benevolent Providence, and if there were a moral order in the universe and an after-life; but it is a very striking fact that all this is exactly as we are bound to wish it to be."
"All thinking men are atheists."
"Martyrdom ... is the only way in which a man can become famous without ability."
GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
"You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep-seated need to believe."
"Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence."
"Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich."
"Well, I've often thought that the Bible should have a disclaimer at the front saying, "This is fiction." I mean, walking on water? I mean, it takes an act of faith."
"[Religious thought is] an attempt to find an out where there is no door."
"Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived."
"I'm not a bad guy! I work hard, and I love my kids. So why should I spend half my Sunday hearing about how I'm going to Hell?"
HOMER SIMPSON :)
