      Post (anti) Religious quotes here

      Post any religious quotes or atheistic quots you like. And please (unlike every single other thread here) Dont turn this into a debate over whos right or wrong blah blah, there are 10000000 other threads for that.

      If you would find the athiestic/ religious quotes offensive, dont read them kay?

      anyways ill start with some atheistic quotes

      ''Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful. – Seneca the Younger''

      ''Philosophy is questions that may never be answered. Religion is answers that may never be questioned.''

      anyways, quote away

      H.L. Mencken

      The way to deal with superstition is not to be polite to it, but to tackle it with all arms, and so rout it, cripple it, and make it forever infamous and ridiculous. Is it, perchance, cherished by persons who should know better? Then their folly should be brought out into the light of day, and exhibited there in all its hideousness until they flee from it, hiding their heads in shame.

      True enough, even a superstitious man has certain inalienable rights. He has a right to harbor and indulge his imbecilities as long as he pleases, provided only he does not try to inflict them upon other men by force. He has a right to argue for them as eloquently as he can, in season and out of season. He has a right to teach them to his children. But certainly he has no right to be protected against the free criticism of those who do not hold them. He has no right to demand that they be treated as sacred. He has no right to preach them without challenge. Did Darrow, in the course of his dreadful bombardment of Bryan, drop a few shells, incidentally, into measurably cleaner camps? Then let the garrisons of those camps look to their defenses. They are free to shoot back. But they can't disarm their enemy.

      There's a reason why I love Mencken.

      With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. – Steven Weinberg

      He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.

      Blind faith is an ironic gift to return to the Creator of human intelligence. – Anonymous

      Is this an anti-religious + atheistic quote thread? Could've sworn it was. Topic title and OP conflict

      Would it be reasonable to conclude that you posted those anti-athiest quotes because you were offended by the anti-religious ones?

      I'd quote that caption but it's much simpler to post the image.

      Faith may be defined briefly as an illogical belief in the occurrence of the improbable.... A man full of faith is simply one who has lost (or never had) the capacity for clear and realistic thought. He is not a mere ass: he is actually ill.
