Notable Atheist: Gore Vidal

 

“Once people get hung up on theology, they’ve lost sanity forever. More people have been killed in the name of Jesus Christ than any other name in the history of the world.”

“The idea of a good society is something you do not need a religion and eternal punishment to buttress; you need a religion if you are terrified of death.”

Notable Atheist: Rafael Nadal

Almost every bad thing that happens in life comes from some form of radicalism, it only unleashes problems that should be fixed. You are entitled to have your likings, sympathies, beliefs, but you should always respect the opinions of others, never insult them. The same happens with religion. You can be religious, or atheist, christian, muslim… whatever, but I think the atrocities that people committed in the name of religion are too much. For me, religion is the main cause of mortality in history.

Notable Atheist: Seth McFarlane

“I’m an atheist, not to be a dick, but just cause it seems like the most likely scenario. But you’ve kind of got to envy the people who are living in this warm pillow… It’s a blessing, ironically, and a curse to be so pragmatic, because you know, you do miss that cushion that a lot of people seem to have.”

“Religion notoriously claims that they invented morality, they didn’t. Morality exists in animals.”

“Stay away from the church. In the battle over science vs. religion, science offers credible evidence for all the serious claims it makes. The church says, ‘Oh, it’s right here in this book, see? The one written by people who thought the sun was magic?’ I for one would like to see some proof that there is a God. And if you say ‘a baby’s smile’ I’m going to kick you right in the stomach.”

“They’re [Parents Television Council] literally terrible human beings. I’ve read their newsletter, I’ve visited their website, and they’re just rotten to the core. For an organization that prides itself on Christian values—I mean, I’m an atheist, so what do I know?—they spend their entire day hating people. They can all suck my dick as far as I’m concerned.”

Notable Atheist: Hugh Laurie

“I don’t believe in God, but I have this idea that if there were a God, or destiny of some kind looking down on us, that if he saw you taking anything for granted he’d take it away. So he’ll be like: ‘You think this is going pretty well?’ Then he’ll go and send down some big disaster.”

Notable Atheist: Daniel Radcliffe

“I don’t [believe in God]. I have a problem with religion or anything that says, “We have all the answers,” because there’s no such thing as “the answers.” We’re complex. We change our minds on issues all the time. Religion leaves no room for human complexity.”

Christopher Hitchens (1949 – 2011)

Christopher Eric Hitchens was a liberator of minds, a wordsmith that held his thoughts at the edge of a sword, and a combatant against the tyranny of religion. He taught us to never be silenced, regardless of how harsh it may be, and to always fight back with trenchant logic and rational.
