“Religion is the opium of the masses. One of the worst facets of religion, aside from inciting violence and war because of zealotry, intolerance and fundamentalism, is that it induces people into a state of resigned acceptance. Some will accept their unjust circumstance and withstand oppression simply because they believe it is God’s will and that they should not attempt to resist. Some will accept humiliation and degradation because they believe it is their comeuppance for their sins. Some will accept languishing at the bottom of the social ladder because they believe their circumstances will improve in the afterlife. Religion holds the power to anesthetize people, to dull their minds into a state of illusion. They allow themselves to be spoon-fed with Biblical phrases and songs and regurgitate the words of Church leaders. They don’t reflect and think about what religion means, but take it as it is word for word. They don’t question.” “It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. - Albert Einstein “Why, then, should I respect a belief system that treats women as cattle, homosexuals as abominations, blasphemers and apostates as criminals — and wants to impose its irrational rules on everyone? Moreover, why should I respect faith at all — why should I respect the willingness to believe things for which there is no good evidence?” — Ezra Resnick “My best advice to anyone who wants to raise a happy, mentally healthy child is: Keep him or her as far away from a church as you can.” — Frank Zappa “An atheist is just somebody who feels about Yahweh the way any decent Christian feels about Thor or Baal or the golden calf. As has been said before, we are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.” — Richard Dawkins “But I think there’s another reason so many believers reflexively frame atheism as bitter and nihilistic. It’s because they have to. It’s because accepting the existence of good, happy atheists undercuts so many of the rationalizations for their beliefs.” — Greta Christina “The foolish reject what they see and not what they think; the wise reject what they think and not what they see.” — Huang Po “I refuse to believe in a god who is the primary cause of conflict in the world, preaches racism, sexism, homophobia, and ignorance, and then sends me to hell if I’m ‘bad’.” — Mike Fuhrman “Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration - courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and, above all, love of the truth.” — H.L. Mencken “Religion applauds delusion and renames it ‘faith’.” — Godfrey Zoan “A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.” — Albert Einstein “One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion.” — Arthur C. Clarke “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 M. Pirsig “Atheism is not a philosophy; it is not even a view of the world; it is simply an admission of the obvious. In fact, “atheism” is a term that shouldn’t even exist. No one ever needs identify himself as a “non-astrologer” or a “non-alchemist.” We do not have words for people who doubt that Elvis is still alive or that aliens have traversed the galaxy only to molest ranchers and their cattle. Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make in the presence of unjustified religious beliefs.” — Sam Harris “Gods are children’s blankets that get carried over into adulthood.” — James Randi
