“I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”
-Stephen Roberts

“It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal god and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious, then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.”

-Albert Einstein

“If English was good enough for Jesus Christ, it ought to be good enough for the children of Texas.”
-Ma Ferguson (Texas Governor) speaking on Spanish as a second language in the United States

“Now, my good man, this is no time for making enemies.”
-Voltaire on his deathbed when asked by a priest if he renounced Satan

“In religion and politics people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination.”
-Mark Twain

“Theology is never any help; it is searching in a dark cellar at midnight for a black cat that isn’t there. Theologians can persuade themselves of anything.”
-Robert A. Heinlein

-Frederick the Great

“No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says: He is always convinced that it says what he means.”
-George Bernard Shaw

“He was a wise man who originated the idea of God”

“After coming into contact with a religious man, I always feel I must wash my hands.”
-Friedrich Nietzsche

“The Christian resolution to find the world ugly and bad has made the world ugly and bad.”
-Friedrich Nietzsche

“There’s an ancient Hebrew word for Jews from Westport… It’s pronounced ‘Presbyterian’.”
-Toby Ziegler to Josh Lyman on The West Wing TV series.
