I’ve always had a fondness for the concise and pithy; Today, I thought I’d share some of my favorites.
- Atheism leaves a man to sense, to philosophy, to natural piety, to laws, to reputation; all of which may be guides to an outward moral virtue, even if religion vanished; but religious superstition dismounts all these and erects an absolute monarchy in the minds of men.
Sir Francis Bacon
- “There are no atheists in foxholes” isn’t an argument against atheism, it’s an argument against foxholes.
- The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike.
Delos B. McKown
- I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.
- Calling Atheism a religion is like calling bald a hair color.
- Two hands working can do more than a thousand clasped in prayer.
- Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime. Give a man religion and he will die praying for a fish.
