HERE I STAND

 

“There have to be people who are vocal about the advancement of knowledge over faith.”
-Seth McFarlane

“I am an atheist. I regard religion with fear and suspicion. It’s not enough to say that I don’t believe in god. I actually regard the system as distressing. I am offended by some of the things in the bible and the koran and I refute them.”
-Emma Thompson

“It’s a strange myth that atheists have nothing to live for. It’s the opposite. We have nothing to die for. We have everything to live for.”
-Ricky Gervais

If all atheists would come out of the closet, perhaps we

could end being governed

by fairy tales.

“I am not religious. I am an atheist, and a militant atheist when religion starts impacting on legislation.”
-Daniel Radcliffe

“Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. The grave will supply plenty of time for silence.”
-Christopher Hitchens

“I am an atheist, and that’s it. I believe there is nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for each other.”
-Katharine Hepburn

“I believe in you and me. I believe in nature, the birds, the sea, the sky, in everything I can see and there is real evidence for. But I don’t believe in a personal god to whom I look for comfort.”
-Frank Sinatra

 

“Why am I an atheist? I ask you: Why is anybody not an atheist? Everyone starts out being an atheist. No one is born with belief in anything. Infants are atheists until they are indoctrinated. I resent anyone pushing their religion on me. I don’t push my atheism on anyone else. Live and let live. Not many people practice that when it comes to religion.”
-Andy Rooney

 

“For several years I maintained public relations with the almighty. But privately I ceased to associate with him.”
-Jean-Paul Sartre

 

"I was brought up as an atheist and I have always remained so. But at no time was I led to believe that morality was unimportant or that good and bad did not exist. I believe passionately in the need to distinguish between right and wrong and am confounded by being told I need god, jesus, or a clergyman to help me do so."

-Nigella Lawson

GOD'S LOYAL OPPOSITION

 

“I don’t believe in the afterlife. I believe this is it. And I believe it’s the best way to live.”
-Natalie Portman

“The question the missionaries asked me when they first arrived at my door really stuck in my head: Did I believe that god loved me with all his heart? I wasn't exactly sure how I felt about that question. If they'd asked me, Do you feel that god loves you with all his heart? Well, that would have been much different, and I think I would have instantly answered, "Yes, I feel it all the time. I feel god's love when I'm hurt and confused, and I feel consoled and cared for. I take shelter in god's love when I don't understand why tragedy hits, and I feel god's love when I look with gratitude at all the beauty I see." But since they asked me that question with the word believe in it, somehow it was all different, because I wasn't exactly sure if I believed what I so clearly felt.”
-Julia Sweeney

-Dan Barker
