“The heavens declare the glory of god; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.” Psalm 19.1

To King David or whoever else wrote this psalm, the stars must have seemed visible evidence of a more perfect order of existence, quite different from our dull sublunary world of rocks and stones and trees. Since David’s day the sun and other stars have lost their special status; we understand that they are spheres of glowing gas, held together by gravitation, and supported against collapse by pressure that is maintained by the heat rising up from thermonuclear reactions in the stars’ cores.

The stars tell us nothing more or less about the glory of a god than do the stones on the ground around us.

"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"

'We know nothing, not even whether we know or do not know, or what it is to know or not to know, or in general whether anything exists or not.' Metrodorus of Chios

"Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear." Thomas Jefferson

"I’ve never understood how God could expect His creatures to pick the one true religion by faith—it strikes me as a sloppy way to run a universe."  R.A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

“Within the clerical system the repentant priest-abuser is easily forgiven – repeatedly – by the power of absolution; the innocent child-victim is abandoned with the undeserved psychic burden of guilt and shame.”

~Richard Sipe

“Religions are ideas, which should not be accorded automatic respect. Like all ideas they should be challenged, probed, and tested. With ideas, only the fittest should survive.”

“You have to question the authority of any religion that discourages discourse. It is only in total isolation that a religion is able to practice the kind of mind control necessary to keep the sheep in line.”

“A ridiculous belief, even if sincerely believed, is no less ridiculous.”

“A lot of humour is based on popping the self-inflated worth of blinkered people who strongly believe they are right with no regard for any other view. Religion provides plenty of source material for this demographic.”

~Anon.

“Public statements of non-belief are treated as threatening, an affront to the religious, while the reverse is not true. More concerning is the enduring assumption that religious belief does not have to earn respect like any other view, an approach that has caused politicians and public figures across the UK to withdraw from asking the vital question: why is religion given such special status in government, culture and the media? Why is belief in a higher power an indication of greater moral fortitude, character and acumen?”

-Richard Dawkins

“There is not enough love and goodness in the world to permit us to give any of it away to imaginary beings.”

“None of the atheists I know would say absolutely that there is no god. Both the existence and non-existence of god are impossible to prove, so the rational atheist says simply: there is insufficient evidence to support belief in a god, therefore I don't believe in god. This is not an absolute position, just a logical conclusion.”

Slavery is an institution that has gone back thousands of years in many places all over the world. In some places, it may well exist today. To say that the Cathlic Church supported it, is singling out one of many and is unfair. The world civilization evolved over thousands of years and now such practices are frowned upon. That is all.

“The more I study religions the more I am convinced that man never worshipped anything but himself.” ~Richard Francis Burton

“Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.” John Stuart Mill

“Belief systems provide a programme which relieves the necessity of thought.”

Bertrand Russell

"“Vatican City is 109 acres of faith in a European sea of unbelief.”

George F. Will

“I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful.”

Christopher Hitchens
