I contend that 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 Roberts

If you can conceive of morality without god, why can you not conceive of society without government?
~ Peter Saint-André

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius, and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
~ Albert Einstein

Man is certainly stark mad: he cannot make a worm, yet he will make gods by the dozen.
~ Michel de Montaigne

Civil disobedience, that’s not our problem. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem.
~ Howard Zinn

Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.
~ Denis Diderot

All great truths begin as blasphemies.
~ George Bernard Shaw

The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich, as well as the poor, to sleep under the bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.

The philosopher has never killed any priests, whereas the priest has killed a great many philosophers.
~ Denis Diderot

A terrorist is someone who has a bomb but can’t afford an air force.
~ William Blum

What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

A time will come when a politician who has willfully made war and promoted international dissension will be ... surer of the noose than a private homicide.
~ H. G. Wells

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
~ Albert Einstein

Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man's original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made, through disobedience and through rebellion.
~ Oscar Wilde

When you philosophically oppose an entire power elite, you cannot help but sound like a conspiracy theorist. Social power is by nature a conspiracy.
~ Tom N

Insanity in individuals is something rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule.
~ Nietzsche

If you talk to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.
~ Thomas Szasz

Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.
~ George Orwell

It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal god and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious, then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.
~ Albert Einstein

Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.
~ Henry David Thoreau

One man's magic is another man's engineering. Supernatural is a null word.
~ Robert Heinlein

We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes.
~ Gene Roddenberry

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
~ Bertrand Russell

As with the Christian religion, the worst advertisement for Socialism is its adherents.
~ George Orwell

A conservative is a man who is too cowardly to fight and too fat to run.

Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich.
~ Napoleon

Never be deceived that the rich will allow you to vote away their wealth.
~ Lucy Parsons

If child molestation is actually your concern, how come we don't see Bradley tanks knocking down Catholic churches?
~ Bill Hicks, 1993, referencing the Waco siege

Do you see now that your self-righteousness was nothing more than breeding and years of privilege? You know, we are one nation under a god. Yes, you were right. An angry, crack slinging god who decorates with bullets and spent condoms, a blind god whose eyes are just like yours.
~ Solipsist by Henry Rollins

Religion, comprises a system of wishful illusions together with a disavowal of reality, such as we find in an isolated form nowhere else but in amentia, in a state of blissful hallucinatory confusion.
~ Sigmund Freud

The ink of the scholar is holier than the blood of the martyr.
~ Prophet Muhammad

Which is it, is man one of God's blunders or is God one of man's?
~ Nietzsche

The compulsion to do good is an innate American trait. Only North Americans seem to believe that they always should, may, and actually can choose somebody with whom to share their blessings. Ultimately this attitude leads to bombing people into the acceptance of gifts.
~ Ivan Illich

… The biggest detractors of communism and socialism always seem to want to embrace the worst excesses of both.
~ <Skullhunter>

Kill a man, and you are an assassin. Kill millions of men, and you are a conqueror. Kill everyone, and you are a god.
~ Jean Rostand

Secular schools can never be tolerated because such schools have no religious instruction, and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith ... we need believing people.
~ Adolf Hitler

I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in forty-seven, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo.
~ Harry S Truman, 1961

Men are not punished for their sins, but by them.
~ Elbert G Hubbard

I like your Christ; I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
~ Mohandas Gandhi

Unless Americans come to realize that they are not stronger in the world because they have the bomb but weaker because of their vulnerability to atomic attack, they are not likely to conduct their policy, in a spirit that furthers the arrival at an understanding.
~ Albert Einstein

Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it.
~ George Bernard Shaw

The same people that wrote the bible thought the world was flat.
~ Unknown

If god created us in his image we have certainly returned the compliment.
~ Voltaire

Stopping terrorism is simple. Just quit screwing around with other people's countries and the terrorists will go home. But the government of the United States wants to go on screwing around with other people's countries, refuses to stop, indeed views it as Manifest Destiny for the United States Government to persist in screwing around with other people's countries, and views the inconvenience, increased tax burden, loss of civil liberties, and even deaths among the American people as just another cost of doing business.
~ Michael Rivero

Be happy while you're living, for you're a long time dead.
~ Scottish proverb

Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching.

Jack Kerouac:

"The only people for me are the mad ones,
the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk,
desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing,
but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles
exploding like spiders across the stars
and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop
and everybody goes 'Awww!'"



Soren Kierkegaard:
"Life can only be understood backwatds; but it must be lived forwards."

Edwin Hubbel Chapin:
"Every action of our lives touches on some
chord that will vibrate in eternity."

Heinrich Heine:
"Where words fail, music speaks."

The enemy is anybody who's going to get you killed, no matter which side he is on.
~ Joseph Heller

It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
~ Voltaire

Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.
~ John Maynard Keynes

:lol:

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.
~ Susan B. Anthony

If pigs could vote, the man with the slop bucket would be elected swineherd every time, no matter how much slaughtering he did on the side.
~ Orson Scott Card

It is poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.
~ Mother Teresa

I'm ineffably tired of pro-war ideologues moaning about how the anti-war folk are just 'complaining' without 'offering solutions' to global dilemmas. Peace doesn't need a freekin moral, ethical, economical, or political qualification; war does. Peace doesn't ravage, plunder, rape, or kill; war does. Peace does not need justification, war does.
~ <OnAir>

Laurel and Hardy, that's John and Yoko. And we stand a better chance under that guise because all the serious people like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Kennedy and Gandhi got shot.
~ John Lennon

I love talking about the Kennedy assassination. The reason I do is because I'm fascinated by it. I'm fascinated that our government could lie to us so blatantly, so obviously for so long, and we do absolutely nothing about it.
~ Bill Hicks

Men who believe absurdities will commit atrocities.
~ Voltaire

The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.
~ George Orwell

Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear, kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor, with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it.
~ General Douglas MacArthur


Knowledge, idea, belief stands in the way of wisdom.
~ J. Krishnamurthi

If we'd been born where they were born and taught what they were taught, we would believe what they believe.
~ A church sign in Northern Ireland

My humble friend, we know not how to live this life which is so short yet seek one that never ends.
~ Anatole France

It makes no difference as to the name of the God, since love is the real God of all in the world.
~ Apache

We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.
~ Kahlil Gibran

Statistically one hundred percent of the shots you don't take don't go in.
~ Wayne Gretsky

Christianity exceeds all other faiths in its power to deform and finally invert the mental process.
~ Ida White

God favors no group. Only religions do that.
~ Bumper Sticker

On the outskirts of every agony sits some observant fellow who points.
~ Virginia Woolf

The fascist state is the corporate state.
~ Benito Mussolini

Jehovah was not a moral god. He had all the vices and he lacked all the virtues. He generally carried out all his threats, but he never faithfully kept a promise.
~ Robert G. Ingersoll

Guns make us powerful; butter will only make us fat.
~ Nazi Hermann Goering

Life is like an overlong drama through which we sit being nagged by the vague memories of having read the reviews.
~ John Updike

Everyone likes to say Hitler did this and Hitler did that. But the truth is Hitler did very little. He was a world class a**hole, but the evil actually done, from the death camps to World War Two, was all done by citizens who were afraid to question if what they were told by their government was the truth or not, and who because they did not want to admit to themselves that they were afraid to question the government, refused to see the truth behind the Reichstag Fire, refused to see the invasion by Poland was a staged fake, and followed Hitler into national disaster.
~ Michael Rivero

Each nation knowing it has the only true religion and the only sane system of government, each despising all the others, each an ass and not suspecting it.
~ Mark Twain

All men are created equal. They are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
~ Ho Chi Minh, 1945, as the Democratic Republic of Vietnam was created

If there has to be a blood bath, let's get it over with.
~Ronald Reagan, Vietnam

You will kill ten of our men, and we will kill one of yours, and in the end it will be you who tire of it.
~ Ho Chi Minh

I ain't got no quarrel with the Vietcong ...
No Vietcong ever called me nigger.
~ Muhammad Ali, stripped of boxing title, convicted of a felony for refusing to serve during the Vietnam War

I can envision a small cottage somewhere, with a lot of writing paper, and a dog, and a fireplace and maybe enough money to give myself some Irish coffee now and then and entertain my two friends.
~ Richard Van de Geer, letter, 1975, last American to die in Vietnam War, Time, 1985

If you are required to kill someone today, on the promise of a political leader that someone else shall live in peace tomorrow, believe me, you are not only a double murderer, you are a suicide, too.
~ Katherine Anne Porter

I spent thirty-three years in the marines, most of my time being a high-class muscle man for big business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.
~ General Smedley Butler, Marine

Over breakfast coffee we read of 40,000 American dead in Vietnam. Instead of vomiting, we reach for the toast. Our morning rush through crowded streets is not to cry murder but to hit that trough before somebody else gobbles our share.
~ Dalton Trumbo

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?
~ Mohandas Gandhi

t is not so much the suffering as the senselessness of it that is unendurable.
~ Nietzsche

I dream that someday the United States will be on the side of the peasants in some civil war. I dream that we will be the ones who will help the poor overthrow the rich, who will talk about land reform and education and health facilities for everyone, and that when the Red Cross or Amnesty International comes to count the bodies and take the testimony of women raped, that our side won't be the heavies.
~ Richard Cohen

Throughout the world, on any given day, a man, woman or child is likely to be displaced, tortured, killed or disappeared, at the hands of governments or armed political groups. More often than not, the United States shares the blame.
~ Amnesty International, in its annual report on U.S. Military aid and human rights, 1996

I am tired of fighting, our chiefs are killed...it is cold and we have no blankets. The little children are freezing to death...hear me, my chiefs, I am tired: my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands...I will fight no more forever...
~ Chief Joseph, before his tribe was slaughtered

When great changes occur in history, when great principles are involved, as a rule the majority are wrong.
~ Eugene V. Debs

Usually when people are sad, they don't do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.
~ Malcolm X

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Where it is a duty to worship the sun, it is pretty sure to be a crime to examine the laws of heat.
~ John Morley

The Church says that the earth is flat, but I know that it is round, for I have seen its shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the Church.
~ Ferdinand Magellan - (disputed)

A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.
~ Nietzsche

Humanity without religion is like a serial killer without a chainsaw.
~ Unknown

In all the disputes, which have excited Christians against each other, Rome has invariably decided in favor of that opinion which tended most towards the suppression of the human intellect and the annihilation of the reasoning powers.

We need a common enemy to unite us.
~ Condoleezza Rice, March 2000

I don't know that atheists should be considered citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.
~ President George Bush, August 27, 1988

Peace is over rated. Any slave can have peace. Just pick the cotton.
~ TheSong

Pain is certain, suffering is optional.
~ Buddha

When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized I was talking to myself.
~ Jack Gurney - "The Ruling Class"

Could a being create the fifty billion galaxies, each with two hundred billion stars, then rejoice in the smell of burning goat flesh?
~ Ron Patterson

The United States is in no sense founded upon the Christian doctrine.
~ George Washington Administration Treaty

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.

~ Stanley Kubrick

The Pope!?! How many divisions has he got?

It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.
~ Albert Einstein

I'm so sick of arming the world, then sending troops over to destroy the f**king arms; you know what I mean? We keep arming these little countries, then we go and blow the sh*t out of them. We're like the bullies of the world, y'know. We're like Jack Palance in the movie Shane, throwing the pistol at the sheepherder's feet. ‘Pick it up.’ ‘I don't wanna pick it up, mister, you'll shoot me.’ ‘Pick up the gun.’ ‘Mister, I don't want no trouble, I just came downtown here to get some hard rock candy for my kids, some gingham for my wife. I don't even know what gingham is, but she goes through about ten rolls a week of that stuff. I ain't looking for no trouble, Mister.’ ‘Pick up the gun.’ The sheepherder picks up the gun, three shots ring out. ‘You all saw him, he had a gun.’
~ Bill Hicks

Americans used to roar like lions for liberty; now we bleat like sheep for security.
~ Norman Vincent Peale

Probably no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and education.
~ Braham Flexner

It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.
~ General Douglas MacArthur

Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way; stop participating in it.
~ Noam Chomsky

One of my favourite quotes is from Grandpa Joe in the original "Willy Wanka and the Chocolate Factory", and it goes a little something like this:

"If she's a lady, then I'm a vicious kinnid!"
