My Top Ten Atheist Quotes

Guest Author - Theresa Faulkner

I love quotes. Especially quotes that are inspirational or resonant with me in some way. The following quotes are my favorite atheist/agnostic quotes and I thought I would share them with you. I hope you find these enjoyable.

Here are my favorites:

“It is an interesting and demonstrable fact, that all children are atheists and were religion not inculcated into their minds, they would remain so.” - Ernestine Rose (Jewish feminist and atheist)

“Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burned, tortured, fined, and imprisoned, yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half of the world fools and the other half hypocrites.” – Thomas Jefferson (Third U.S. President and principal author of the U.S. Declaration of Independence)

“It is convenient that there be gods, and, as it is convenient, let us believe there are.” -Ovid (Ancient Roman classical Poet and Author of Metamorphoses, 43 BC-17)

“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 (ancient Greek philosopher - I have found evidence that this quote is usually attributed to be his but may not be so.)

“Creationists make it sound like a ‘theory’ is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night “ - Isaac Asimov (author)

"It ain’t the parts of the Bible that I can’t understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand" – Mark Twain (author)

"Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a whiff of science or a dose of common sense" – Chapman Cohen (atheist and Bristish Freethought activist)

"If I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of their lives and not the pattern of their words. I think he would prefer an honest and righteous atheist to a TV preacher whose every word is God, God, God, and whose every deed is foul, foul, foul" – Isaac Asimov (author)

"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 (Evolution Biologist and author)

And last, but certainly not least:

"To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition" - Woody Allen (actor)

If you have any quotes you would like to add, please visit me in the forum. I have started a discussion for quotes. They can be yours or someone else’s, but please be sure to reference it.
