Atheism Quotes – Christopher Hitchens

Today’s post is the 900th post on this blog and to honor this number I have a quote to share from the late, great Christopher Hitchens.

“In this summary of mutual interest and solidarity, there is no requirement for any enforcing or supernatural authority. And why should there be? Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.” – Christopher Hitchens

Exactly.  Humans are not decent due to a god.  They are decent because, unlike the god of the Bible, they know the difference between right and wrong.

One thought on “Atheism Quotes – Christopher Hitchens

  1. Apparently, whatever God does is good by definition of him doing or commanding it. Even if he says when we do or command it, outside of his saying or doing that is, it would be pure evil.
    It must be good to be on top of the ladder of Power and Authority. But you’re right, doesn’t make that God good or moral, just more powerful than those he subjugates.
