Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?- Epicurus
Where knowledge ends, religion begins. Benjamin Disraeli
With or without religion, 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. Delos B. McKown
Men never commit evil so fully and joyfully as when they do it for religious convictions. Blaise Pascal
Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies. Friedrich Nietzsche
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people. Karl Marx
Religion is an illusion and it derives its strength from the fact that it falls in with our instinctual desires. Sigmund Freud
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.
What I see in Nature is a magnificent structure that we can comprehend only very imperfectly, and that must fill a thinking person with a feeling of "humility." This is a genuinely religious feeling that has nothing to do with mysticism. Albert Einstein
If you gave[Jerry] Falwell an enema, he could be buried in a matchbox. Christopher Hitchens
What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof. Christopher Hitchens
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ. Ghandi
The constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear. Jiddu Krishnamurti
All good. Epicurus forgets the importance of free will. Pascal also said that science was a cul-de-sac, a pursuit that dethrones God, elevates man to where he sees himself as Lord of creation which eventually either drives him mad, or demotes him to the merely animal.
