"What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof." -- Christopher Hitchens

"You train young men to drop fire on people. But their commanders won't allow them to write *bleep* on their airplane, because, it's obscene."


"For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring" -- Carl Sagan

"We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die, because they are never going to be born. The number of people who could be here in my place outnumbers the sand grains of Sahara. If you think about all the different ways our genes could be permuted, you and I are quite grotesquely lucky to be here: the number of events that had to happen in order for you to exist, in order for me to exist. We are privileged to be alive and we should make the most of our time on this world." -- Richard Dawkins

"If I were to suggest that between the Earth and Mars there is a china teapot revolving about the sun in an elliptical orbit, nobody would be able to disprove my assertion provided I were careful to add that the teapot is too small to be revealed even by our most powerful telescopes. But if I were to go on to say that, since my assertion cannot be disproved, it is an intolerable presumption on the part of human reason to doubt it, I should rightly be thought to be talking nonsense. If, however, the existence of such a teapot were affirmed in ancient books, taught as the sacred truth every Sunday, and instilled into the minds of children at school, hesitation to believe in its existence would become a mark of eccentricity and entitle the doubter to the attentions of the psychiatrist in an enlightened age or of the Inquisitor in an earlier time." -- Bertrand Russell's teapot

"We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further." -- Richard Dawkins

"“There is in every village a torch - the teacher; and an extinguisher- the clergyman” -- Victor Hugo

"What's the difference between Scientology and Christianity? 2000 Years."

"If the ignorance of nature gave birth to gods, then the knowledge of nature is calculated to destroy them." -- Baron d'Holbach


"When I go home people'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do you do it man? What, you some kinda war junkie?" You know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is."

"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion." -- Steven Weinberg

"In application, some religions attack or defame other religions as being corrupt, such as Protestant leaders' criticism of Catholicism during the Protestant Reformation. Religions that are no longer widely practised (e.g. ancient Greek religion, ancient Egyptian religion) are often seen today as untrue or fictional mythology. Currently practised religions which have fewer followers (e.g. Scientology) are often dismissively seen as cults by members of larger religions, yet both may have equally irrational foundation and practices."

"They mostly come out at night... mostly." -- Aliens

"Keep you doped with religion, sex and tv. And you think you're so clever and classless and free." -- John Lennon

"The music of rebellion
Makes you wanna rage
But it's made by millionaires
Who are nearly twice your age" -- Porcupine Tree

"Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for dead, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall -- you need me on that wall. We use words like "honor," "code," "loyalty." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand the post."

"When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called Religion."

"History does not record anywhere or at any time a religion that has any rational basis. Religion is a crutch for people not strong enough to stand up to the unknown without help. But, like dandruff, most people do have a religion and spend time and money on it and seem to derive considerable pleasure from fiddling with it."--Robert A. Heinlen

"Religion is something left over from the infancy of our intelligence, it will fade away as we adopt reason and science as our guidelines."--Bertrand Russell

"Common sense is not so common."--Voltaire

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."--Voltaire

"Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand."--Karl Marx
