Atheism Quotes – Matty Arnold

Today’s Atheism quote is from Matty Arnold. Anyone who has ever seen the multitude of ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ replies in social media will understand this quote.

“The power that prayer holds is in its protection from scrutiny and in its ability to allow people to feel that they are doing good without actually doing good.” – Matty Arnold

Nothing says “I’m not going to help you” more than posting “Thoughts & Prayers” to someone’s social media post. Yet anytime you see someone post something sad on Facebook it is a million “Thoughts & Prayers” replies. What are you praying for? You didn’t even say! Are you actually going to pray or are you just saying that so you can pretend to feel good? Are you going to offer any real help at all?

Thoughts and prayers my ass.

Atheism Quotes – Jon Stewart

Although Trevor Noah is doing a great job as The Daily Show host, in my opinion, I really, really miss Jon Stewart. He had a way with words and that is clear in this quote.

“Religion. It’s given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.” –Jon Stewart

Stewart is Jewish, although I don’t know if he’s a believer or a secular Jew. Regardless, he nails religion in this quote. Religion tears people apart and uses your suffering to draw you in further and give money. It’s a scam.

Atheism Quotes – John Lennon

Today’s Atheism Quote are the lyrics of a song written by John Lennon.

“Imagine there’s no heaven

It’s easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people living life in peace”

– John Lennon

Simply beautiful!

Atheism Quotes – Annie Besant

Today’s Atheism quote is a good one.

“The Atheist waits for proof of God. Till that proof comes he remains, as his name implies, without God. His mind is open to every new truth, after it has passed the warder reason at the gate.” – Annie Besant

Exactly. As an Atheist, I need proof God exists. Real proof. Not fake proof such as ‘oh look at how beautiful the world is’. No, I need God himself to give me real proof. If he is the god Christians say he is, providing real proof should be no problem. Until that time, I am an Atheist.
