If the bible is the good book, I would hate to see the bad book.

Using the bible to prove the bible is like using a comic book to prove batman.

The truth of atheism sets you free more than any religious 'truth'. Free from trying to justify ridiculous myths, free from denying science, and free from being shamed by the words and deeds of other believers.

I pity the theist. Their beliefs are so primitive...just like those who believed in Zeus and all the other gods that people have invented over the stretch of human history. Mythology is still mythology, then and now.

A stupid man's report of what a clever man says is never accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something that he can understand.  (Bertrand Russell)

As atheists, let’s all agree that from now on, the religious will be referred to as “Non-Atheists.”

If you wouldnt let a doctor who studied out of a 2000 year old medical book preform surgery on you, why let a priest reading out of a 2000 year old book tell you how to live your life?

A person's religion is their choice and their choice alone. They have no right to export that choice into anyone else's backyard, school system or government. They also have no right to expect their belief must remain unchallenged. Ignorance and myth must be challenged or we will all drown in ignorance and myth. Calling religious belief ignorance is not hate. It is the truth because religious belief seeks to supplant knowledge with myth, which is nothing more than the pretense of knowledge, which, by definition, is ignorance.  (Matt Fichter)

In Judaism, Islam and Christianity, greed is forbidden - a deadly sin. Yet greed itself, greed of another life is what started all religions.

Any book that features a talking donkey (Numbers 22:21-30) to my mind is, and can only be, a fairytale.

The Bible is a dangerous and confusing book in that a little good is mixed up in a whole lot of nasty poison and then fed to innocent impressionable young minds.

Isn't a day defined by the rotation of the Earth? To say that God created the Earth in seven days is like saying he created water whilst taking a shower.

What theists really mean when they say...



"See the light" = Start living in a dream world.

"Moving away from God" = Start living in the real world.

"You are arrogant" = Please stop sticking to facts, it's annoying.

"I hope God can forgive you" = I wish I could shoot you.

"Good Christian" = Someone who does good deeds just to please God.

"Atheist" = Someone who does good deeds just because they can.

"Believers" = A club for people who like pretending they'll never die.

"Church" = Where the club meets to play the pretending game.

"The word of God" = I need a rule book and this is it.

"God's will" = Every single thing that could ever possibly happen.

"Against God's will" = You're not sticking to our book are you?

"Jesus loves you" = I think you're a twat.

"The end is nigh" = Listen, if you won't play the pretending game I'm going to wish you dead and then you'll get scared and start playing.

"Priest" = Someone who is an expert at pretending and has memorised lots of useless information to help delude others.

"Other religions" = They're just pretending the wrong pretend stuff is true but it isn't, only ours is the real pretend stuff.

"Scientists" = Those annoying people who keep making us look silly.

"Evolution" = Theory that makes much more sense than mine, just poke your tongue out and hope it goes away.

"Truth" = Delusions we in the club have all agreed on.

They're right to call it the 'Holy Book'... after all it's full of holes.

Question everything about religion, and you will discover why believers don't.

Is it good, because your god tells you it is good? Then the morals you speak of are empty.
Does your god tell you it is good, because it is already good? Then the morals you speak of need no god.

Christianity offers reasons for not fearing death or the universe, and in so doing it fails to teach adequately the virtue of courage. The craving for religious faith being largely an outcome of fear, the advocates of faith tend to think that certain kinds of fear are not to be deprecated. In this, to my mind, they are gravely mistaken. To allow oneself to entertain pleasant beliefs as a means of avoiding fear is not to live in the best way. In so far as religion makes its appeal to fear, it is lowering to human dignity.  (Bertrand Russell)

Some argue that atheism is an equal and opposite to theism. This is incorrect, atheism is in fact the default position, theism is the anomaly to explain.  (Gabriel Neil)

If there was a God, his miracles wouldn't only have been done when people weren’t looking for evidence.
