Although not an atheist myself, I believe they exist, and I’m not above quoting them….and what better day to do so than April Fool’s Day, a day of dubious origin and God-awful jokes? So, without further a-Dieu, I bring you the word(s) of Godless mortals:
I have too much respect for the idea of God to make it responsible for such an absurd world. -Georges Duhamel
When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called Religion. -Robert M. Pirsig
I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up — they have no holidays. -Henny Youngman
If absolute power corrupts absolutely, where does that leave God? -George Deacon
Eskimo: If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?
Missionary: No, not if you didn’t know.
Eskimo: Then why did you tell me?
I admire anyone who’s genuinely trying to achieve spiritual enlightenment and live a peaceful life. But religious dogma is a barrier to that. The last thing a dogmatist wants is for anyone to be enlightened, any more than a pharmaceutical company wants anyone cured. -Pat Condell
When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized I was talking to myself. –Peter O’Toole
Christianity, as many religions, was just dreamed up by a couple people with really good imaginations, a lot of time on their hands, and even some “herbal” help. I mean, who would dream up half of that crap without being totally baked? -Jillian A. Spencer
Puritanism, n. The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. -Ambrose Bierce
There ain’t no answer. There ain’t going to be any answer. There never has been an answer. That’s the answer. -Gertrude Stein (when asked about God)
Oh, well. We’ll always have Paris.
