Atheist Quotes

The following is a collection of atheist quotes that I have accumulated from the interwebs, television, literature, friends, and others. Some of these quotes are by atheists; some are by theists. Some are intended to be humorous; some are quite serious. Strangest of all, some of these quotes you might find used by theists to defend their own position. In the context in which I appreciate them, I believe they serve as support for my own views. The common thread among all of these quotations is that they represent a piece of my view on atheism, humanism, science, and the recklessness of religion.

“People will then often say, ‘But surely it’s better to remain an Agnostic just in case?’ This, to me, suggests such a level of silliness and muddle that I usually edge out of the conversation rather than get sucked into it. (If it turns out that I’ve been wrong all along, and there is in fact a god, and if it further turned out that this kind of legalistic, cross-your-fingers-behind-your-back, Clintonian hair-splitting impressed him, then I think I would choose not to worship him anyway.)” — Douglas Adams

“How can you have order in a state without religion? For, when one man is dying of hunger near another who is ill of surfeit, he cannot resign himself to this difference unless there is an authority which declares ‘God wills it thus.’ Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.” — Napoleon Bonaparte

“A soul you say? Give my pocketwatch to a savage and he’ll think it has a soul.” — Napoleon Bonaparte

“If you keep your mind sufficiently open, people will throw a lot of rubbish into it.” — William A. Orton

“It was good of Friedrich Nietzsche to declare God dead — I declare that he has never been born. It is a created fiction, an invention, not a discovery… It is man-manufactured fiction. Certainly it has given consolation, but consolation is not the right thing! Consolation is opium. It keeps you unaware of the reality, and life is flowing past you so quickly… Anybody who gives you a belief system is your enemy, because the belief system becomes the barrier for your eyes, you cannot see the truth. The very desire to find the truth disappears. But in the beginning it is bitter if all your belief systems are taken away from you. The fear and anxiety which you have been suppressing for millennia, which is there, very alive, will surface immediately. No God can destroy it, only the search for truth and the experience of truth — not a belief — is capable of healing all your wounds, of making you a whole being. And the whole person is the holy person to me.” — Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh)

“I would love to believe that when I die I will live again, that some thinking, feeling, remembering part of me will continue.

“The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.” — Socrates

“When dogma enters the brain, all intellectual activity ceases.” — Robert Anton Wilson

“Atheism is a requirement for a complete human being.

Once you discover it’s only an illusion, that it’s not even a real crutch, you discard it gladly.” — Brent Yaciw
