Today’s Atheism quote comes from Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France.
“Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.” – Napoleon Bonaparte
Napoleon was not an Atheist. He was catholic and realized how he could use religion to rule the masses.
Today’s Atheism quote comes from the famous author, Ernest Hemingway.
“All thinking men are atheists.” – Ernest Hemingway
The quote should say men ‘AND WOMEN’ or ‘all thinking PEOPLE’ because thinking women are atheists too! So are thinking kids!
Today’s Atheism quote is one of the best out there, in my opinion.
“I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.” – Stephen F Roberts
With the millions of gods people have worshipped over the millennia, why would a single god be the true god? It’s far more likely that the Christian god is just like the other gods, non-existent.
Today’s Atheism Quote comes from Amanda Scott.
“The separation of church and state is important to me because it protects the rights of both non-religious and religious people. The same wall that protects atheists from state sponsored Christianity is the one that protects Christians from state sponsored Islam.” – Amanda Scott
Church-state separation is there for everyone of all religions and no religion. Something Christians can’t accept. They don’t understand that it is there to protect them too.
Today’s quote is from Alyssa Ahrens.
“The religious walk a fine line between innocence (or ignorance) and reality. While the nonbelievers move ever further away from the concept of a deity and ignorance, the religious will do but one thing when tempted with a frightening reality: kneel.” – Alyssa Ahrens
Well said. I’m not sure it’s a fine line though. Although not all, many religious are well over the line and deep into the territory of ignorance.
Today’s Atheism quote is from Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
“When women understand that governments and religions are human inventions; that Bibles, prayer-books, catechisms, and encyclical letters are all emanations from the brains of man, they will no longer be oppressed by the injunctions that come to them with the divine authority of ‘Thus sayeth the Lord.’” – Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Very well said. Men created the Bible to oppress others, but especially women. The rise of women will put an end to Biblical nonsense forever.
