Atheism Quotes – Daniel Radcliffe

“I’m not religious, I’m an atheist, and a militant atheist when religion starts impacting on legislation.” – Daniel Radcliffe

The religious often ask why atheists are so worried about those who believe in God, if they themselves don’t believe in a God.  Here’s the deal.  I don’t really care what you believe on your own time, but when you push your god in schools and in government legislation that effects everyone, we have a problem.  Like Daniel Radcliffe, I’m a militant atheist in those situations.

Atheism Quotes – Brad Pitt

“When I got untethered from the comfort of religion, it wasn’t a loss of faith for me, it was a discovery of self,’ explained Pitt. ‘I had faith that I’m capable enough to handle any situation. There’s peace in understanding that I have only one life, here and now, and I’m responsible.’” – Brad Pitt

Sometimes the greatest freedom in life comes when you escape the shackles of religion.

Atheism Quote – Matt Dillahunty

This Sunday’s Atheism quote is another excellent one from Matt Dillahunty, a very prominent activist in the Atheist community and co-host of the Atheist Experience podcast.

“I’ll live for me and for other real people. Until some god gives me five minutes of their time…they deserve none of mine.” – Matt Dillahunty

Very well said.  What kind of god expects you to follow all of his rules and do everything he says, without once appearing or actually speaking to you?  An asshole god that is not worth anyone’s worship.  Either there are no gods or existing gods are assholes.  Either way they deserve not a single second of my time.

Atheism Quotes – Bill Nye

This marks the 800th post on this blog, which I started about three years ago near the end of 2014.  To celebrate this arbitrary number, I’ve found a great quote from Bill Nye.

“If you want to deny evolution and live in your world, in your world that’s completely inconsistent with everything we observe in the universe, that’s fine, but don’t make your kids do it because we need them. We need scientifically literate voters and taxpayers for the future. We need people that can… we need engineers that can build stuff, solve problems.” – Bill Nye

Bill Nye is right.  Teaching your kids to deny science does nothing but harm them and the society they live in.  It sets your kids back and as a result, sets back society.
