He’s gonna recommend you to the Spirit in the Sky.

I am such a sucker for a good atheist quote!

Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make when in the presence of religious dogma. – Sam Harris

A man is accepted into a church for what he believes and he is turned out for what he knows. – Samuel Clemens

I still say a church steeple with a lightning rod on top shows a lack of confidence. – Doug McLeod

The world holds two classes of men – intelligent men without religion, and religious men without intelligence. – Abu’l‐Ala al Ma’arri

Blind faith is an ironic gift to return to the Creator of human intelligence. – Anonymous

What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof. – Christopher Hitchens

It will yet be the proud boast of women that they never contributed a line to the Bible. – George W. Foote

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours. – Stephen Roberts

We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further. – Richard Dawkins

God should be executed for crimes against humanity. – Bryan Emmanuel Gutierrez

I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it. – Samuel Clemens

And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence. – Bertrand Russell

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? – Epicurus

“I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing. – Douglas Adams

Remember, Jesus would rather constantly shame gays than let orphans have a family. – Steven Colbert

People will then often say, ‘But surely it’s better to remain an Agnostic just in case?’ This, to me, suggests such a level of silliness and muddle that I usually edge out of the conversation rather than get sucked into it. (If it turns out that I’ve been wrong all along, and there is in fact a god, and if it further turned out that this kind of legalistic, cross-your-fingers-behind-your-back, Clintonian hair-splitting impressed him, then I think I would choose not to worship him anyway.) – Douglas Adams

Properly read, the bible is the most potent force for Atheism ever conceived. – Isaac Asimov

An atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support. – John Buchan

Faith does not give you the answers, it just stops you asking the questions. – Frater Ravus

Believing there is no God gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-o, and all the other things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have. – Penn Jillette

When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion. – Robert Pirsig

I wonder who got the shit job of scouring the planet for the 15000 species of butterfly or the 8800 species of ant they eventually took on board Noah’s Ark. But at least we got that magical rainbow for all their trouble. – Azura Skye

I have no need for religion, I have a conscience. – Anonymous

If god is the alpha and the omega. The begining and the end, knows what has passed and what is to come, like it states in the bible, why do people pray and think it will make any difference. – Mark Fairclough

I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious ideas of heaven and hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God. So far as religion of the day is concerned, it is a damned fake… Religion is all bunk. – Thomas Edison

Most religions prophecy the end of the world and then consistently work together to ensure that these prophecies come true. – Anonymous

Religion is like a virus that affects the behaviour of its host in such a way as to propagate itself further. – Jack Pritchard
