Atheism quotes
Atheism
Ask a deeply religious Christian if he'd rather live next to a bearded Muslim that may or may not be plotting a terror attack, or an atheist that may or may not show him how to set up a wireless network in his house. On the scale of prejudice, atheists don't seem so bad lately.

- Scott Adams
He must pull out his own eyes, and see no creature, before he can say, he sees no God; He must be no man, and quench his reasonable soul, before he can say to himself, there is no God.

- Donne, John
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
If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.

- Voltaire
There are few people so stubborn in their atheism who when danger is pressing in will not acknowledge the divine power.

- Plato
We find the most terrible form of atheism, not in the militant and passionate struggle against the idea of God himself, but in the practical atheism of everyday living, in indifference and torpor. We often encounter these forms of atheism among those who are formally Christians.

- Berdyaev, Nicolai A.
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
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
Selfishness is the only real atheism; unselfishness the only real religion.

- Zangwill, Israel
An atheist is a man who watches a Notre Dame -- Southern Methodist University game and doesn't care who wins.

- Eisenhower, Dwight D.
Among the higher-hearted of the early voyagers, the grandeur and glory around them had attuned their spirits to itself and kept them in a lofty, heroical, reverent frame of mind; while they knew as little about what they saw in an "artistic" or "critical" point of view as in a scientific one. . . . They gave God thanks and were not astonished. God was great: but that they had discovered long before they came into the tropics.
Noble old child-hearted heroes, with just romance and superstition enough about them to keep from that prurient hysterical wonder and enthusiasm which is simply, one often fears, a product of our scepticism! We do not trust enough in God, we do not really believe His power enough, to be ready, as they were, as every one ought to be on a God-made earth, for anything and everything being possible; and then when a wonder is discovered we go into ecstasies and shrieks over it, and take to ourselves credit for being susceptible of so lofty a feeling--true index, forsooth, of a refined and cultivated mind!!
Smile if you will: but those were days (and there never were less superstitious ones) in which Englishmen believed in the living God, and were not ashamed to acknowledge, as a matter of course, His help, and providence, and calling, in the matters of daily life, which we now, in our covert atheism, term "secular and carnal."

- Westward Ho! chap. xxiii.
Nobody talks so constantly about God as those who insist that there is no God.

- Heywood Broun
I once wanted to become an atheist, but I gave up - they have no holidays.

- Henny Youngman
And as for the unbelievers, their works are as a mirage in a spacious plain which the man athirst supposes to be water, till when he comes to it, he finds it is nothing; there indeed he finds God, and He pays him his account in full; (and God is swift at the reckoning).

- Qur'an
The only atheism is the denial of truth.

- Arthur Lynch
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
If you can't believe in God, chances are your God is too small.

- Phillips, James
Atheism is aristocratic; the idea of a great Being that watches over oppressed innocence and punishes triumphant crime is altogether popular.

- Maximilien Robespierre
An atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.

- John Buchan
If there is no God, everything is permitted.

- Dostoevsky, Fyodor
