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.
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.
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
Today’s Atheism quote is quite thought provoking.
“Gods always behave like the people who created them.” – Zora Neale Hurston
Most gods are very evil and this definitely includes the Christian god. Makes you wonder why…oh wait.
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.
Today’s quote comes from Atheist activist and author David G. McAfee.
“God has an unalterable and perfect plan for every person… but you should still pray in a vain attempt to change it.” – David G. McAfee
I’ve always thought the same. If God has a plan for all of us, what is the point of praying?
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
