Madalyn Murray (later O'Hair), wrote a document used in the court case Murray v. Curlett, 1961-APR-27. It reads, in part:

"An Atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An Atheist knows that heaven is something for which we should work now - here on earth - for all men together to enjoy. An Atheist thinks that he can get no help through prayer but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue, and enjoy it. An Atheist thinks that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help to a life of fulfillment. Therefore, he seeks to know himself and his fellow man rather than to know a god. An Atheist knows that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An Atheist knows that a deed must be done instead of a prayer said. An Atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanquished, war eliminated. He wants man to understand and love man. He wants an ethical way of life. He knows that we cannot rely on a god nor channel action into prayer nor hope for an end to troubles in the hereafter. He knows that we are our brother's keeper and keepers of our lives; that we are responsible persons, that the job is here and the time is now."

Although I don't completely agree with this quote, I thought it was kind of clever:

"Science flies you to the moon. Religon flies you into buildings"

"... It is difficult to imagine a set of beliefs more suggestive of mental illness than those that lie at the heart of many of our religious traditions." - Sam Harris, "The End of Faith," p. 72

"Knowledge is the eternal enemy of revealed-truth religion." - Me

"Marx was wrong. Religion is not the opiate of the people. Opium suggests something soporific, numbing, dulling. Too often religion has been an aphrodisiac for horror, a Benzedrine for bestiality. At its best it has lifted spirits and raised spires. At its worst it has turned entire civilizations into cemeteries." Phillip Adams 'Adams vs God'

Meghan Knuth [Me]: God! Making decisions is hard!!

Christopher McGuire: Remember, Sky, if you just get on your knees and talk to the ceiling for a few minutes a night, drink zombie jesus blood, spend your Sundays dodging above-the-law pedophiles, etc... This god fella will make all your decisions for you! ;)

A strong woman will deny a sexist god, and be proud of it! - Me

I always said a very short prayer to God; here it is:"My God! make my enemies very ridiculous!" God heard my prayer.

(Theological religion) is the source of all imaginable follies and disorders; it is the mother of fanaticism and civil discord; it is the enemy of mankind.

----Voltaire

"When will we realize that the concessions we have made to faith in our political discourse have prevented us from even speaking about, much less uprooting, the most prolific source of violence in our history?" - Sam Harris, The End of Faith

I read about an Eskimo hunter who asked the local missionary priest, "If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?" "No", said the priest, "not if you did not know." "Then why," asked the Eskimo, "did you tell me?"
---Annie Dillard
