Lighthouses are more helpful

Lighthouses are more helpful then churches. — Benjamin Franklin

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it." -Buddha

 

When once asked in the library if I believed in Jesus Christ, I pointed out that zombie novels are in the fiction section.

"Question with boldness even

"Question with boldness even the existence of God, for if there be one, surely he would pay more homage to reason than to that of blindfolded fear" Thomas Jefferson

"As the government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion" Barbary Treaty(Treaty of Tripoli) signed without dissent by both houses of Congress and signed into law June 10th 1797 by President John Adams.

These are not atheist quotes per say, but they were quotes in support of maintaining Jefferson's wall between state and religion. The founders were of a variety of beliefs and certainly did defend freedom of religion. Christians falsely claim that means they are solely intitled to the drivers seat as far as public office. Which brings me to my favorite quote directly out of the United States Constitution, "NO RELIGIOUS TEST|".

 

 

 

"We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and nonbelievers."Obama

"The hands that help are far

"The hands that help are far better than the lips that pray."
  --  Robert G. Ingersoll

 

A fact never went into partnership with a miracle. Truth scorns the assistance of wonders. A fact will fit every other fact in the universe, and that is how you can tell whether it is or is not a fact. A lie will not fit anything except another lie.
Robert Green Ingersoll

Few nations have been so poor as to have but one god. Gods were made so easily, and the raw material cost so little, that generally the god market was fairly glutted and heaven crammed with these phantoms.
Robert Green Ingersoll

I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me. If they hold thought to be dangerous - if they aver that doubt is a crime, then I attack them one and all, because they enslave the minds of men.
Robert Green Ingersoll
