The mountain of evidence against religion can be contrasted with the tiny pile of sand in favor of it; a pile of sand just big enough to bury your head in.

When inventing a god, the most important thing is to make it invisible, inaudible and imperceptible in every way. Otherwise, people will become skeptical when it appears to no one, is silent and does nothing.

I didn't "lose" my faith... I know exactly where I left it. It's in the same bin as my christmas stocking.

My admission to atheism is not an invitation for you to "save" me, but a request that you keep your bullshit to yourself.

As stated many times: "Those whom have faith are happier then those without." Of course this is true! Have you never heard..."ignorance is bliss?"

Religion applauds delusion and renames it 'faith'.

How can a person who is civil and just but ask's for nothing in return be less righteous than those behave justly, but only under threat, and for the aim of a personal reward?

There are certain things that our age needs, and certain things that it should avoid. It needs compassion and a wish that mankind should be happy; it needs the desire for knowledge and the determination to eschew pleasant myths; it needs above all, courageous hope and the impulse to creativeness. The things that it must avoid, and that have brought it to the brink of catastrophe, are cruelty, envy, greed, competitiveness, search for irrational subjective certainty, and what Freudians call the death wish.  (Bertrand Russell)

The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life.  (Freud)

Religion comforts by telling us death is not real. Science comforts by telling us how incredibly lucky we are to have lived.

It's funny how an adult can make fun of a child because he believes in imaginary friends, but when an adult makes fun of another adult for this, all sorts of persecutions and atrocities are committed to defend the honor of the imaginary friend in question.

If I said to someone that because they were a homosexual, I would take them down to my basement and torture them, claiming my own "universal law", I would be considered a dangerous psychopath. When god does it, it is holy judgment and not to be questioned.  (Gabriel Neil)

I love how the people who wrote the bible made a conscious effort to discourage their readers from asking questions or thinking independently. Don't eat from the tree of knowledge, be like sheep instead...that'll save us a lot of hassle and it will make the Bible seem less ridiculous.

Religion is a lot like NASCAR, something for the ignorant masses to believe in.

Um, Genesis says God look a nap (just like an over-worked factory worker) on the 7th day after he'd done all that planet-building. Was the writer of that book not familiar with the exact meaning of the term 'omnipotent'?

Life is but a momentary glimpse at the wonder of this astonishing universe and it is sad to see so many dreaming it away on spiritual fantasies.

After reading the bible, I have come to the conclusion that the god in their stories is an evil, sadistic, megalomaniacal monster. Why do theists insist upon worshiping such a creature, much less wanting to believe that it exists?

Why isn't god as sociable as he used to be in the bible. I mean back then he used to show up for every genocide and baby massacre. Nowadays you hardly ever see him anymore...well, except for those times where he's appears to attention-starved old catholic ladies in the form of a god-shaped lasagne or jesus' face in a tortilla. Apart from that he never visits anymore.  (Emile de Bergerac)
