Men never commit evil so fully and joyfully as when they do it for religious convictions.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours. – Stephen Roberts

When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion.

And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence.
- Bertrand Russell

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 (My FAVE!)

It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

Here are a few of my favorites, though I don't consider them exclusively "atheist" since as a Deist I find them perfectly valid (as I do the other quotes posted in this thread):


"I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires."
- Susan B. Anthony

You know your god is man-made when he hates all the same people you do. -unknown

"Humanity without religion is like a serial killer without a chainsaw."
-unknown

"The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one."
- George Bernard Shaw

"Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest"

- Denis Diderot

"Why should I allow that same God to tell me how to raise my kids, who had to drown His own?"
- Robert G. Ingersoll

If you say that you believe Latin words said over a stack of pancakes can turn them into the body of Elvis Presley.... then you are considered INSANE. If however you say that you believe Latin words said over crackers turn them into the body of Jesus.... then you are just a catholic.

Sam Harris

"In every country and every age the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in allegiance with the despot, abetting his abuses for protection of his own" --Thomas Jefferson
