Atheism Quotes – Christopher Hitchens

Today’s quote comes from the late, great Hitch. Religion is indoctrination. Without indoctrination, religion suffers a quick death.

“If religious instruction were not allowed until the child had attained the age of reason, we would be living in a quite different world.” – Christopher Hitchens

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.
