Epicurus

“Personally, I should not care for immortality in the least. There is nothing better than oblivion, since in oblivion there is no wish unfulfilled. We had it before we were born, yet did not complain. Shall we then whine because we know it will return?”

H.P. Lovecraft

“Satan is a word that separates the sheep from the wolves. No matter how liberated or non-judgemental people claim to be, if they can't get past a simple two-syllable word, their minds are still enslaved. We are eternally separated by one word, Satan.”

Blanche Barton

“The true test of anyone's worth as a living creature is how much he can utilize what he has.”

“Everytime someone tillz me that our muzik executed the god idea out of their skull, I am Pleazed! Pleazed Indeed!”

Thorko Jones - Primordial Conviction!

“Uz Satanists are often charged with blasphemy, but it is a crime we cannot commit... When we Satanistz examine, denouce, or satirize the gods, we are not dealing with persons but with ideas. We Satanistz are incapable of insulting god, for we do not admit the existence of any such being... We attack not a person but a belief, not a being but an idea, not a fact but a fantasy.”

Thorko Jones - Primordial Conviction!

“The dark is generous, and it is patient. It is the dark that seeds cruelty into justice, that drips contempt into compassion, that poisons love with grains of doubt. The dark can be patient, because the slightest drop of rain will cause those seeds to sprout. The rain will come, and the seeds will sprout, for the dark is in the soil in which they grow, and it is in the clouds above them, and it waits behind the star that gives them light. The dark's patience is infinite. Eventually, even stars burn out.”

Matthew Stover - Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

“The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic, is no more to the point, than the fact that a drucken man is happier than a sober one.”

George Bernard Shaw

“What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the wish to find out, which is the exact opposite.”

Bertrand Russell

“If absolute power corrupts absolutely, where does that leave god?”

George Daacon

“If god listened to the prayers of men, all men would quickly have perished; for they are for ever praying for evil against one another.”

Epicurus

“When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realized that the lord doesn't work that way. So I stole one and asked him to forgive me.”

Emo Phillips

“The best things and best people rise out of their separateness. I'm against a homogenized society, because I want the cream to rise.”

Robert Frost

“Once 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 earnestly, "did you tell me?"”

Annie Dillard

“There was a time when religion ruled the world, it was called the Dark Ages.”

Ruth Hurmence Green

Susan Anthony

“If we believe in absurdities, we shall commit atrocities.”

Voltaire

Star Trek - Gene Roddenberry's reply back on religion

“Well, I often thought that the bible should have a disclaimer at the front saying, "This is fiction." I mean, walking on water? I mean, it takes an act of faith.”

Ian McKellen

“Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that. I'm right and I will be proved right.”

John Lennon

“Reason and faith are related as scales of a balance, when one goes down, the other goes up.”

Schopenhauer

“The bible is not my book and christianity not my religion.”

Abraham Lincoln

“You cannot convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep seated need to believe.”

Carl Sagan

“The hunter must hunt. The moment he stops he becomes the hunted.”

Anton Lavey

“Two great European narcotics, alcohol and christianity.”

Nietzche

“If the account given in Genesis is really true, ought we not, after all, to thank the Serpent? He was the first schoolmaster, the first advocate of learning, the first enemy of ignorance, the first to whisper in human ears the sacred word liberty, the creator of ambition, the author of modesty, of inquiry, of doubt, of investigation, of progress and of civilization.”

Robert Ingersoll

“The inspiration of the bible depends on the ignorance of the person who reads it.”

Robert Ingersoll

“christianity demands the crucifixion of the intellect.”

Soren Kierkegaard

“The fact is that far more crime and child abuse has been committed by zealots in the name of god, jesus, mohammed than has ever been committed in the name of Satan. Many people, including myself, don't like that statement, but the truth is undeniable.”

Ken Lanning - FBI Report; Satanic Ritual Abuse 1992

“I know full well the brutality and cruelty of which I am capable, so I stay away from things which anger me. Not that I am doing society any favors. On the contrary; If were to become the fiend or berserker of which I know -- if I should perform some hideous tasks, thereby calling attention to myself -- then I would give cheap entertainment to others who are far more intrinsically vicious than myself. And I would become their slave, their jester, their release from boredom. I am too selfish for that.”

Anton Lavey

“I do not believe in the creed professed by the jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my church.”

Thomas Jefferson

“The christian religion has made the white man a blood-thirsty, cowardly, low-minded hypocrite, justifying all his foul acts with a Cross. Nothing but a club will keep the christian fanatic out of government, out of schools, out of control of the press, theater, and police.”

Rupert Hughes

“Why should a Satanist pay more taxes so that a church which he despises should pay no taxes? That's a fair question. How can the apologists for the church exemption answer it?”

E. Haldeman-Julius

“I am convinced that children should not be subjected to the frightfulness of the christian religion... If the concept of a father who plots to have his own son put to death is presented to children as beautiful and as worthy of society's admiriation, what types of human behavior can be presented to them is reprehensible.”

Ruth Hurmence Green

“Just in terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There's a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning.”

Bill Gates

“Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”

Sigmund Freud

“The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason”

Benjamin Franklin

“christians, like slave and soldiers, ask no questions.”

Jerry Falwell

“I have found christian dogma unintelligible. Early in life I absented myself from christain assemblies.”

Benjamin Franklin

“He who seeks equality between unequals, seeks an absurdity.”

Spinoza

“God is the only thing, which in order to reign, doesn't even need to exist.”

Charles Baudelaire

“The man whom follows the crowd will get no further than the crowd. The man whom walks alone will find himself in places no one has ever been.”

Alan Ashley-Pitt

“The sole equality on Earth is death.”

Phillip James Bailey

“Fanatical believers in the bible, the koran, and torah have fought one another for centuries without realizing that they belong to the same pestiferous club.”

Alan Watts

“I have always felt friendly toward Satan. Of course that is ancestral; it must be in the blood, for I could not have originated it.”

Mark Twain

“An organization that requires the suppression of facts and the discouragement of knowledge in order to maintain its supremacy, is the relic of a tyranny which our free age and our free thought are in duty to remove from the Earth.”

Lemuel Washburn

“Better to make a weak man your enemy than your friend.”

Shaw

“You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”
