A good king inspires loyalty. An evil tyrant demands blind obediance. A good king allows those who do not want to serve him leave in peace. An evil tyrant kills and tortures those who will not be slaves. This is why I could never be christian.

Why would some all powerful being create creatures capable of reason and then demand that they act in a manner contrary to their creation?

The only thing that truly controls morals is the conscience. No fabricated god or invented soul can match the natural feelings of embarrassment or regret. To do bad things and then be absolved of those actions, as the church permits, prevents the conscience from doing its job.

Deaths in the Bible:

God:  2,270,365 not including the victims of Noah's flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, or the many plagues, famines, fiery serpents, etc because no specific numbers were given.

Satan – 10



Who needs Satan when you have a God like this?

One person believing in a magical man in the sky is madness.

One hundred people believing in a magical man in the sky is a cult.

One million people believing in a magical man in the sky is a religion.

Dear religious people:  Don't worry, when atheists become the majority, we will treat you far better than you have historically treated us when you were the majority.

Science teaches you to open your eyes and appreciate the reality around you. Religion teaches you to close your eyes and cling to the fantasy within you.

I see believers killing each other over whose god is better, wiser or more righteous, but I don't see atheists killing each other over who believes less.

In the same week science safely dropped a human being from space, religion shot a 14 year old girl in the head for wanting to go to school.

If you have a few hundred followers, and you let some of them molest children, they call you a cult leader. If you have a billion, they call you Pope.

Religion prevents our children from having a rational education; religion prevents us from removing the fundamental causes of war; religion prevents us from teaching the ethic of scientific co-operation in place of the old fierce doctrines of sin and punishment. It is possible that mankind is on the threshold of a golden age; but, if so, it will be necessary first to slay the dragon that guards the door, and this dragon is religion.  (Bertrand Russell)

If you think your afterlife will be better than your current life, you're not really living. You're just waiting to die.

The stupidity of theists unfortunately outweighs the intelligence of atheists.

The bible was written by anonymous, believed by the clueless, and enforced by the immoral.

Believers wrongly call atheists "hard hearted". But in all honesty, I'd rather have a hardened heart than a stagnant brain.

The Bible fails to point out that slavery, child abuse and rape are bad things. But it did help mankind to abstain from picking up sticks on Saturdays.

If you can't see it, if you can't hear it, if you can't feel it, if you can't smell it, if you can't taste it or demonstrate its force or actions, in all likelihood, it does not exist. To think otherwise is to imagine it.

"Do what I tell you to or I'll beat you up" is the message given by the school bully.

"Believe what I tell you to or you'll burn for all time" is the message given by religion.
