Just wondering what some of your favourite atheist or even religious quotes are. I've seen so many recently and some of them are so perfectly worded.

Lots of good ones that speak to me.  "These myths were born of hopes..." is beautiful.  Never heard it before, or anything like it.

As people become more intelligent they care less for preachers and more for teachers.

Robert G. Ingersoll

I like the Ingersoll quotes.  I just purchased Susan Jocoby's book about him, "The Great Agnostic."  Should be a good read.

Agreed.  I have not read him yet, but when I see him quoted, I respond quite favorably.  He was an American treasure for sure.

Didn't she also write Doubt?  I am reading that.

Here a few more of my favourites....

Blind faith is an ironic gift to return to the Creator of human intelligence.
Unknown

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
Richard Dawkins

Some theists say scientists are "playing god" but I don't see any scientists deliberately making babies that will die of cancer before they can even walk
Godfrey Zoanh

Satan hasn't a single salaried helper; the Opposition employ millions
Mark Twain

It's better to live in freedom for one life time than to be a slave of God for an eternity
Mimoun Raddahi

I let the Bible do my arguing for me. 

"Arise, O God! Plead thine own cause" Psalm 74:22

"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thess 2:11-12

There goes god again-sending strong delusion. Wouldn't it just be easier and more effective for him to send strong certification? 

Got to love that one.  Ol' Yahweh as much as admits he's a bastard, like he's proud of it.  All the more reason to disassociate oneself from anything having to do with him, his bible or any of it.

Gotta love that scripture!

I like Nietzsche's statement that Christianity is the worst disaster to ever befall mankind.  I am reading Shelley's Prometheus Unbound and he said some good things in that as well.

You read my mind on that one, Dalton.  While Richard Dawkins is ordinarily a soft-spoken man, there is one instance where he pulls no punches and calls a spade a spade ... and most deservedly so!
