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. Its not enough to say that I dont 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

 

"I am not going to censor myself to comfort your ignorance."

-John Stewart

Its a strange myth that atheists have nothing to live for. Its 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 thats 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.

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 dont 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 dont 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

 

"I'm not really an atheist so much as I am an anti-theist. I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful."

-Christopher Hitchens

GOD'S LOYAL OPPOSITION


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.

I dont believe in the afterlife. I believe this is it. And I believe its the best way to live.
-Natalie Portman

 

I made a commitment to follow reason and evidence wherever they might lead, even if it meant taking me away from my cherished beliefs. I have to say that life has been much richer and happier since I was healed of religious delusion.
-Dan Barker

Its not that I am an atheist. But rather that I am a member of Gods loyal opposition.
-Ashleigh Brilliant

"I am an atheist. And I am not neutral about religion. I am decidedly hostile to it. I think it is a positively bad idea. Not just a false one. And I mean, not just organized religion, but religious belief itself."
-Christopher Hitchens

 


"I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other."

-Martin Luther
 

"Our substitute teacher asked me if I had jesus in my heart. I didn't try to explain to him the separation of church and state considering he couldn't even understand the separation of fact from fiction."

-Saffron Herndon

 

As my ancestors are free from slavery, I am free from the slavery of religion.
