Not a quote from an Atheist, but sure is an eye opener on his religious values.??

"Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith . . . We need believing people."
Adolf Hitler.April 26, 1933, from a speech made during negotiations on the Nazi-Vatican Concordat of 1933.

Here are a few more quotes, I am not sure if Voltaire was atheist or not, I would guess St. Augustine was not atheist:

“Lord make me chaste, but not yet” Saint Augustine

Voltaire is one of my favorite people in history. He had a quick dry whit, and gave us lots of good quotes.

“Man is free at the instant he wants to be”

“To hold a pen is to be at war”

“To pray to god is to flatter oneself that with words one can change nature”

“If god has made us in his image, we have returned him the favor”

“It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong”

“It is said that god is always on the side of the big battalion”

“God created sex, Priest created marriage”

“Is it any wonder there are atheist in the world when the church behaves so abominably”

'Faith is believing what you know ain't so'
-Mark Twain

One of my favorites. It really points out the cognitive dissonance and willful abandonment of logic brought on by faith.

Sounds like something Bush would say.

God is as real as I am," he assured me; thus, my faith was restored, for I knew Santa would never lie.

Religious suffering is, at the same time, the expression of real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.
Karl Marx

Great ones

here are a couple more

"It is said that men may not be the dreams of the Gods, but rather that the Gods are the dreams of men."
Carl Sagan


"All natural institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit." The Age of Reason
Thomas Paine
