Francois Marie Arouet "Voltaire"Friedrich Wilhelm NietzscheRobert G. IngersollOther PhilosophersMagazines and NewspapersAuthorsFictional CharactersEntertainersOther PeopleThe Bible
"What can we say to a man who tells you that he would rather obey God than men, and that therefore he is sure to go toheaven for butchering you? Even the law is impotent against these attacks of rage; it is like reading a court decree to araving maniac. These fellows are certain that the holy spirit with which they are filled is above the law, that theirenthusiasm is the only law that they must obey."[Voltaire, 1764]"There are no sects in geometry."[Voltaire, Philosophical Dictionary, 1764]"Inspiration: A peculiar effect of divine flatulence emitted by the Holy Spirit which hisses into the ears of a few chosenof God...."[Voltaire]"Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd."[Voltaire]"It is one of the superstitions of the human mind to have imagined that virginity could be a virtue."[Voltaire]"You will notice that in all disputes between Christians since the birth of the Church, Rome has always favored thedoctrine which most completely subjugated the human mind and annihilated reason."
2My favorite quotes12/24/07 15:50:12http://www.mega.nu:8080/atheist_quotes_2.html[Voltaire]"It is clear that the individual who persecutes a man, his brother, because he is not of the same opinion, is a monster."[Voltaire]"Nothing can be more contrary to religion and the clergy than reason and common sense."[Voltaire, Philosophical Dictionary, 1764]"A clergyman is one who feels himself called upon to live without working at the expense of the rascals who work tolive."[Voltaire]"Since the whole affair had become one of religion, the vanquished were of course exterminated."[Voltaire]
"Is man one of God's blunders, or is God one of man's blunders?"[Nietzsche]"I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time."[Friedrich Nietzsche]"The Christian faith from the beginning, is sacrifice: the sacrifice of all freedom, all price, all self-confidence of spirit; itis at the same time subjection, self-derision, and self-mutilation..."[Nietzsche]"Man is the cruelest animal. At tragedies, bullfights, and crucifixions he has so far felt best on earth; and when heinvented hell for himself, behold, that was his very heaven."[Friedrich Nietzsche]"A certain sense of cruelty towards oneself and others is Christian; hatred of those who think differently; the will topersecute. Mortal hostility against the masters of the earth, against the 'noble', that is also Christian. Hatred of mind, of pride, courage, freedom, libertinage of mind, is Christian; hatred of the sense, of the joy of the senses, of joy in general isChristian."[Nietzsche]"The Christian resolution to find the world ugly and bad has made the world ugly and bad."[Nietzsche]"The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who thinkdifferently."[Nietzsche "The Dawn" (1881)]
3My favorite quotes12/24/07 15:50:12http://www.mega.nu:8080/atheist_quotes_2.html"I call Christianity the *one* great curse, the *one* great intrinsic depravity, the *one* great instinct for revenge forwhich no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, *petty* -- I call it the *one* mortal blemish of mankind."[Friedrich Nietzsche]"Belief means not wanting to know what is true."[Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ, 1889]"In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point."[Friedrich Nietzsche]"Here the ways of men part: if you wish to strive for peace of soul and pleasure, then believe; if you wish to be a devoteeof truth, then inquire."[Friedrich Nietzsche]"God is a gross answer, an indelicacy against us thinkers--at bottom merely a gross prohibition for us: you shall not think!"[Nietzsche, Ecce Homo]
"The hands that help are better far than the lips that pray."[Robert G. Ingersoll]"Ministers say that they teach charity. That is natural. They live on hand-outs. All beggars teach that others should give."[Robert G. Ingersoll]"The doctrine that future happiness depends upon belief is monstrous. It is the infamy of infamies. The notion that faithin Christ is to be rewarded by an eternity of bliss, while a dependence upon reason, observation and experience meritseverlasting pain, is too absurd for refutation, and can be relieved only by that unhappy mixture of insanity andignorance, called "faith." What man, who ever thinks, can believe that blood can appease God? And yet, our entiresystem of religion is based upon that believe. The Jews pacified Jehovah with the blood of animals, and according to theChristian system, the blood of Jesus softened the heart of God a little, and rendered possible the salvation of a fortunatefew. It is hard to conceive how the human mind can give assent to such terrible ideas, or how any sane man can read theBible and still believe in the doctrine of inspiration."[Robert G. Ingersoll, "The Gods", 1872]"In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments; there are consequences."[Robert Ingersoll]"If Christ, in fact, said "I came not to bring peace but a sword," it is the only prophecy in the New Testament that hasbeen literally fulfilled."[Robert G. Ingersoll]
