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.
