Why would anyone turn to God for advice in child rearing? After all, he drowned all of his own.

A Christian threatening an atheist with hell is like a hippy threatening to punch my aura.

Every argument in history between science and religion has been won by science. When will they learn?

I told my children never to touch the fruit bowl.  They were naughty and touched it though, so I threw them out in the middle of winter and cursed them to suffer horribly for the rest of their lives, and for all subsequent generations to suffer also.  I forgave them by sending my newest child to them to be tortured and murdered.  Am I a bit sick?

Science explains reality without considering human wishes, and that is its greatest strength. Religion explains reality by only considering human wishes, and that is its greatest weakness. So, what do YOU want...reality, or self-indulgence?

The Bible:  a book that can be used to turn you into a doormat or a killer... depending which passages you choose to take any notice of.

Religious people claim that it’s just the “fundamentalists” of each religion that cause all the problems, but there’s got to be something wrong with the religion itself if those who strictly adhere to its most fundamental principles are violent bigots and sexists.  (David G. McAfee)

If you have to lie to prove what you believe, then what you believe is a lie.

To most Christians, the bible is like a software license; nobody actually reads it.  They just scroll to the bottom and click "I agree."

The core of Christianity is this: It's an Iron Age cult of human sacrifice. Any love, compassion, or gentleness tacked onto it is just natural humanity's attempt to conceal the hideousness of that sick horror.

Why is it that when the religious want to mock atheism, they do so by making it sound more like religion?

Faith is deciding to allow yourself to believe something your intellect would otherwise cause you to reject, otherwise there’s no need for faith.
