I agree with Nietzsche when he said:

"I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty — I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind"

I mixed up a Linus Trovalds quote about Linux & MS to come up with one for Science & Religion.

It is not the intention of science to disprove religion, it is just an unintended side-effect.

Ive always favored Epicurus.

 

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?

Not necessarily anti-religion, but I love this one for its comedic value:

"I still say a church steeple with a lightning rod on top shows a lack of confidence."  Doug McLeod

 

Probably anything George Carlin said is fantastic.

 

And I was just reminded of this Thomas Jefferson quote:

"Religions are all alike - founded upon fables and mythologies."

Being raised as a Moron, this struck me like a sledgehammer.

"It is falsehood only, and not truth, that shrinks from the light of investigation."

The leaders know that it's all bullshit. That's why they're so secretive about their history.

Does anyone know who the author is?

"One man’s theology is another man’s belly laugh."

Robert Heinlein (the notebooks of Lazarus Long from 'Time Enough for Love)

Though Heinlein has many atheistic quotes, this one I think is the most succinct. I credit my Atheism in large part to reading Mr. Heinlein as a youth. He inoculated me against the germ, so even though I went to Catholic School for my formative years, my mind "...was a rocky place where...[its] seed could find no purchase"

God is a concept by which we measure our pain
