Atheism quotes
Atheism
A little philosophy inclineth men's minds toward atheism; but depth of philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion.

- Sir Francis Bacon
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?"

- Quentin Crisp
We shall say without hesitation that the atheist who is moved by love is moved by the Spirit of God; an atheist who lives by love is saved by his faith in the God whose existence (under that name) he denies.

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

- Richard Dawkins
How can I believe in God when just last week I got my tongue caught in the roller of an electric typewriter?

- Woody Allen
Atheism has no room for human rights.

- U.S. Senate Chaplain Richard Halverson
Here lies an Atheist: All Dressed Up and No Place to Go.

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

- Peter De Vries
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 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
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.
There are no atheists in foxholes.

- Cummings, William T.
An atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support.

- John Buchan
An atheist may be simply one whose faith and love are concentrated on the impersonal aspects of God.

- Weil, Simone
During the crusades all were religious mad, and now all are mad for want of it.

- Stedman, Captain J. G.
Irreligion. The principal one of the great faiths of the world.

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

- Henny Youngman
An atheist is a person who has no invisible means of support

- Huxley, Aldous
I don't know if God exists, but it would be better for His reputation if He didn't.

- Jules Renard
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
