Pointed atheism quotes

FROM JASON’S QUOTATIONARY — I was trolling 4scrape, as I am wont to do these days, and found a slew of white-on-black walls emblazoned with simple quotes — all progressively skeptical and ration-based. I thought I’d share them:

“It does not pay a prophet to be too specific.”
– L. Sprague de Camp

“Hands that help are far better than lips that pray.”
– Robert G. Ingersol

“God has a lot to account for in the way of earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, and plagues. Nor has he ever shown much discrimination in his choice of victims.”
– Barbara Ehrenreich

“Man desires a world where good and evil can be clearly distinguished, for he has an inate and irrepressible desire to judge before he understands.”
– Milan Kundera

“God was invented to explain mystery… When you finally discover how something works… you don’t need him anymore.”
– Richard Feynman

“If you don’t find God in the next person you meet, it is a waste of time looking for him further.”
– Mohandas Gandhi

“Believing there’s no God means I can’t really be forgiven except by kindness and faulty memories. That’s good. I have to try to treat people right the first time around.”
– Penn Jillette

“You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out God hates all the same people you do.”
– Anne Lamott

“I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.”
– Richard Dawkins
