-Clarence Darrow

“The sciences of textual criticism, archaeology, physics, and molecular biology have shown religious myths to be false and man-made. Religion and the churches are manufactured, and this salient fact is too obvious to ignore.”
-Christopher Hitchens

 

“Religion is based primarily upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly as the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. Fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death. Fear is the parent of cruelty, and therefore it is no wonder if cruelty and religion have gone hand in hand.”
-Bertrand Russell

 

Man created god

in his own image.

 

“The word god for me is nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the bible a collection of primitive legends that are pretty childish, and religion an incarnation of the most childish superstitions.”
-Albert Einstein

-Petronius

 

“I don’t differentiate much between people who believe in religion from those who believe in astrology, magic, or the supernatural.”
-Andy Rooney

 

 

"The bible is what fools have written, what imbeciles command, what rogues teach, and what young children are forced to learn by heart."

-Voltaire

 

“It is often said, half in jest, that god created man in his own image and man has returned the compliment, saddling god with his own narrow prejudices and exclusivity, foibles and temperamental quirks.”
-Desmond Tutu

 

"If ignorance of nature gave birth to gods, perhaps knowledge of nature is made for their destruction."

-Percy Bysshe Shelley

INVENTING GOD


"God created man in his own image. And man, being a gentleman, returned the favor."
-Rousseau

 

“God made man in His own image, and man returned the compliment.”
-Blaise Pascal

 

"There is no god. God is the greatest lie invented by man. Because men feel so helpless, so afraid of death, so burdened with life's problems, he had to invent god. And because he has been raised by a father and mother. Those were beautiful days. No responsibility. No worry. Somebody was taking care of them. That psychological childhood is projected into all religions. And god becomes the father. Or mother. It is the simple psychological projection of a child. God has no basis in reality. Whenever you are afraid, whenever you are in trouble, and you start seeking help, and no help ever comes, that when you invent god."
-Osho

“If god has created us in his image, we have more than returned the compliment.”
-Voltaire

 


 

“Gods always behave like the people who created them.”
-Zora Neale Hurston

 

"The devil, to better subjugate men, invented god."
-Gnostics

 

"The bible makes perfect sense. As soon as you realize it was written at a time when women were the property of men, slavery was commonplace, and death was the penalty for minor offences. A time when belief in gods and magic was ubiquitous, and gods were used to explain every unknown. A time when men knew less about the world than the average 12-year-old does today. Then it makes perfect sense. But those days are long gone."

-Gap Olivar

 

“My academic background in history and anthropology left me thinking that it is less likely that gods created us and more likely that we created them.”
-Guy Harrison

 


 

"Religion is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions."

-Albert Einstein

 

“Religions are all alike, founded upon fables and mythologies.”
-Thomas Jefferson

 

“If god did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.”
-Voltaire

 

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

 

"Theology is ignorance with wings."

-Sam Harris

 

“Men rarely, if ever, manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child.”
-Robert A Heinlein

 

“The kindly god who lovingly fashioned each and every one of us and sprinkled the sky with shining stars for our delight -- that god is, like Santa Claus, a myth of childhood, not anything a sane, undeluded adult could literally believe in. That god must either be turned into a symbol for something less concrete or abandoned altogether.”
-Daniel Dennett

 

Once upon a time, no one knew anything about the world and the universe, so they made up some shit.

 

“The word of god is for me nothing but the expression and product of human weaknesses.”
-
Albert Einstein

 

"Critics of religion in general portray religion as outdated, harmful to the individual, harmful to society, an impediment to the progress of science, a source of immoral acts or customs, a political tool for social control."

-Quote
 

 

"Smart people learn from everything and everyone.  Average people learn from their own experience.  Stupid people learn nothing, for they think they already have all the answers."

-Socrates

 

"Religion is regarded by the common people as true. By the wise as false. And by the rulers as useful."
-Seneca
