Been wanting an atheist quote in Latin as a tattoo for some time now. I started reading Christopher Hitchens - GOD IS NOT GREAT yesterday and was very happy to see a latin quote...
Tantum religio potuit suadere malorum
(To such heights of evil are men driven by religion.)
-Lucretius, De Rerum Natura
Excited about the prospect of my new tattoo (to which I started to design straight away), a thought entered my mind that usually does when getting a different language tattoed!!!... 'What if this is wrong?' - So I started looking this quote up. To my surprise... Hitchens was WAY OFF.. the most popular of the few translations that I found was..
`So potent was religion in persuading to evil deeds`...
Is there anyone out there that could clarify this?
Or can anyone tell me of any great atheist quotes in Latin?
