Hello my friends on Atheist Nexus,
Glad to be a member in here:)
This my first discussion...and sorry if this has been discussed before.
I'm curious to know about your favorite atheist quotes..
about everything, science, ethics, morals, wisdom and any kind of quote that attracted you..
Here is my favorite one,
My personal favorite:
"An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An Atheist believes that deed must be done instead of a prayer said. An Atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated."-- Madalyn Murray O'Hair
"Trying to use the bible to prove the existence of God, is the same as tying to use a star wars novel to prove the existence of Darth Vader".
I have recently read the epic Mahabharata and it was no surprise if it preaches faith in god and 'dharma', but it also strongly advocates faith in Brahmins!
Religions are all alike - founded upon fables and mythology - Thomas Jefferson
The divinity of Jesus is made a convenient cover for absurdity - John Adams

I like a lot of quotes in this discussion.
One of my favorite atheist quotes is: "Why does God not heal amputees?"
My favorite quote is not atheist related, but Hope did say "any kind of quote", so here it is:
"Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person; having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but to pour them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then, with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away." -- Dinah Maria (Mulock) Craik (often attributed to George Eliot)
