A few you will enjoy ;). 1000's more.<quoted text>
If what you say were true? No atheist would ever be a successful ...**anything**...
... but that's clearly false:
Most actors are atheists.
Most musicians are atheists too.
Proving you are simply full of shyt as per your usual.
I have a extensive collection of quotes.
"So far as religion of the day is concerned, it is a damned fake... Religion is all bunk." ~Thomas Edison
"Thus I came...to a deep religiosity, which, however, reached an abrupt end at the age of 12. Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached a conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true.... Suspicion against every kind of authority grew out of this experience...an attitude which has never left me." ~Albert Einstein
Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it, you'd have good people doing good things and evil people doing bad things, but for good people to do bad things, it takes religion.~Steven Weinberg (physicist and Nobel Laureate)
"The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason." ~Benjamin Franklin
"All religions bear traces of the fact that they arose during the intellectual immaturity of the human race before it had learned the obligations to speak the truth. Not one of them makes it the duty of its God to be truthful and understandable in his communications." ~Freidrich Nietzsche
"I don't think we're here for anything, we're just products of evolution. You can say 'Gee, your life must be pretty bleak if you don't think there's a purpose' but I'm anticipating a good lunch." ~James Watson (Discoverer of DNA)
The alleged short-cut to knowledge, which is faith, is only a short circuit destroying the mind.~Ayn Rand
"I turned to speak to God, about the world's despair; But to make bad matters worse, I found God wasn't there." ~Robert Frost
For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream.
He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.
Flying out tomorrow Bob :(
Merry Christmas to you and family - hope to be back sometime in 2014.
