atheism

Richard Carrier: [re theologian Benjamin Wiker] The whole thrust of his argument is that atheists are responsible for all the evils of the world, atheists have taken over government and are conspiring to oppose religion, we have to get rid of these guys. And he slanders atheists with all these ridiculous claims about how immoral they are, and so forth, just as, you know, Hitler did against the Jews.
Narrator: [deadpan] I hardly ever eat babies. And when I do, they're babies nobody wants.
Richard Carrier: Or have sex with babies. Or have sex with chickens! That's one of the things that, this guy has this, Benjamin Wiker has this obsession that he thinks, if atheism gets its way, everybody will be buggering sheep.More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]

The only theism worthy of our respect believes in God not because of the way the world is made but in spite of that. The only theism that is no less profound than the Buddha's atheism is that represented in the Bible by Job and Jeremiah.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

The old pagans had to choose between a brilliant, jangling, irresponsible universe, alive with lawless powers, and the serene and ordered universe of God and law. We modern pagans have to choose between that divine order, and the grey, dead, irresponsible, chaotic universe of atheism. And the tragedy is that we may make that choice without knowing it -- not by clear conviction but by vague drifting, by losing interest in Him. A nominal deist will say: "Yes, of course there must be some sort of Force that created the gaMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is not anything I know which hath done more mischief to Religion... than the disparaging of Reason, under pretense of respect and favour to it. For hereby the very Foundations of Christian Faith have been undermined, and the World prepared for Atheism. And if Reason must not be beard, the Being of a God, and the Authority of Scripture, can neither be proved nor defended; and so our Faith drops to the Ground like a House that hath no Foundation.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Experience has repeatedly confirmed that well-known maxim of Bacon's that 'a little philosophy inclineth a man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion.' At the same time, when Bacon penned that sage epigram... he forgot to add that the God to whom depth in philosophy brings back men's minds is far from being the same from whom a little philosophy estranges them.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I want atheism to be true and am made uneasy by the fact that some of the most intelligent and well-informed people I know are religious believers. It isn't just that I don't believe in God and, naturally, I hope that I'm right in my belief. It's that I hope there is no God! I don't want there to be a God; I don't want the universe to be like that.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Sin aims always at the utmost; every time it rises up to tempt or entice, if it has its own way it will go out to the utmost sin in that kind. Every unclean thought or glance would be adultery if it could, every thought of unbelief would be atheism if allowed to develop. Every rise of lust, if it has its way reaches the height of villainy; it is like the grave that is never satisfied. The deceitfulness of sin is seen in that it is modest in its first proposals but when it prevails it hardens men’s hearts, and brings More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Atheism is a strange thing. Even the devils never fell into that vice.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The philosophy of Atheism has its root in the earth, in this life; its aim is the emancipation of the human race from all God-heads, be they Judaic, Christian, Mohammedan, Buddhistic, Brahmanistic, or what not. Mankind has been punished long and heavily for having created its gods, nothing but pain and persecution, have been man's lot since gods began. There is but one way out of this blunder. Man must break his fetters which have chained him to the gates of heaven and hell, so that he can begin to fashion out of his rMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Religion is defined as belief in and worship of a controlling power and atheism is precisely not that.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
