Atheism quotes
Atheism
If therefore my work is negative, irreligious, atheistic, let it be remembered that atheism -- at least in the sense of this work -- is the secret of religion itself; that religion itself, not indeed on the surface, but fundamentally, not in intention or according to its own supposition, but in its heart, in its essence, believes in nothing else than the truth and divinity of human nature.

- Feuerbach, Ludwig
How to trap an atheist: Serve him a fine meal, then ask him if he believes there is a cook.

There is little hope that we shall learn the lessons God is for ever teaching us in the events of life till we get rid of our secret Atheism, till we give up the notion that God only visits now and then to disorder and destroy His own handiwork, and take back the old scriptural notion that God is visiting all day long for ever, to give order and life to His own work, to set it right where it goes wrong, and re-create it whenever it decays.

- Water of Life Sermons. 1866.
I don't know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn't.

- Jules Renard
It is the final proof of God's omnipotence that he need not exist in order to save us.

- Peter De Vries
A little philosophy inclineth man's mind to atheism, But depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion.

- Sir Francis Bacon
Forth from his dark and lonely hiding-place, (Portentous sight!) the owlet Atheism, sailing on obscene wings athwart the noon, drops his blue-fringed lids, and holds them close, and hooting at the glorious sun in Heaven, cries out, Where is it?

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
Among the repulsions of atheism for me has been its drastic uninterestingness as an intellectual position. Where was the ingenuity, the ambiguity, the humanity (in the Harvard sense) of saying that the universe just happened to happen and that when we're dead we're dead?

- Updike, John
If it turns out that there is a God, I don't think that he's evil. But the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever.

- Woody Allen
The worst moment for the atheist is when he is really thankful and has nobody to thank.

- Dante Gabriel Rossetti
He talks about the Scylla of Atheism and the Charybdis of Christianity -- a state of mind which, by the way, is not conducive to bold navigation.

- Douglas, Norman
An atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.

- John Buchan
When ever a person talks loudly against religion, always suspect that it is not their reason, but their passions, which have got the better of their beliefs. A bad life and a good belief are disagreeable and troublesome neighbors; and when they separate, depend on it that it is for the sake of peace and quiet.

- Sterne, Laurence
Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakeable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.

- Richard Dawkins
I'm still an atheist, thank God.

- Luis Bunuel
When I told the people of Northern Ireland that I was an atheist, a woman in the audience stood up and said,yes, but is it the God of the Catholics or the God of the Protestants in whom you don't believe?

- Crisp, Quentin
You've got your phenomenon on one hand. Concrete and knowable. On the other hand you've got the incomprehensible. You call it God, but to me, God or no, it remains just that, the unknowable.

- Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess
If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.

- Voltaire
Now we have no God. We have had two: the old God that our fathers handed down to us, that we hated, and never liked; the new one that we made for ourselves, that we loved; but now he has flitted away from us, and we see what he was made of -- the shadow of our highest ideal, crowned and throned. Now we have no God.

- Schreiner, Olive
Criticism alone can sever the root of materialism, fatalism, atheism, free-thinking, fanaticism, and superstition, which can be injurious universally; as well as of idealism and skepticism, which are dangerous chiefly to the Schools, and hardly allow of being handed on to the public.

- Immanuel Kant
