Religion Quotes










"This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religions in it."
John Adams

"Science has done more for the development of Western civilization in one hundred years than Christianity did in eighteen hundred years."
Jeff Burroughs

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
Arthur C. Clarke

"One man's "magic" is another man's engineering. "Supernatural" is a null word."
Robert A. Heinlein

"Mysteries are not necessarily miracles."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always been premature, and it remains premature today."
Isaac Asimov

"Ignorance and superstition ever bear a close and mathematical relation to each other."
James Fenimore Cooper

"So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence."
Bertrand Russell

"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use."
Galileo Galilei



"Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear."
Thomas Jefferson

"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 mind is my own church. All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit."
Thomas Paine

"Where it is a duty to worship the sun it is pretty sure to be a crime to examine the laws of heat."
John Morley

"It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so, and will follow it by suppressing opposition, subverting all education to seize early the minds of the young, and by killing, locking up, or driving underground all heretics."
Robert A. Heinlein

"Heresy is only another word for freedom of thought."
Graham Greene

"God is the immemorial refuge of the incompetent, the helpless, the miserable. They find not only sanctuary in His arms, but also a kind of superiority, soothing to their macerated egos; He will set them above their betters."
H.L. Mencken

"The believer is happy. The doubter is wise."
Unknown

"The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality."
George Bernard Shaw

"I do not consider it an insult, but rather a compliment to be called an agnostic. I do not pretend to know where many ignorant men are sure - that is all that agnosticism means."
Clarence Darrow

"People fashion their God after their own understanding. They make their God first and worship him afterwards."
Oscar Wilde

"Men rarely (if ever) manage to dream up a god superior to themselves. Most gods have the manners and morals of a spoiled child."
Robert A. Heinlein

"Men have ascribed to God imperfections that they would deplore in themselves."
W. Somerset Maugham

"Creationists make it sound as though a theory is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night."
Isaac Asimov

"The Bible contains legendary, historical and ethical contents. It is quite possible to consider them separately, and one doesn't have to accept the legends in order to get the ethics. Fundamentalists make a grave mistake to insist on the letter of the writings, because they drive away many who can't swallow the Adam-and-Eve bit."
Isaac Asimov

"And the day will come, when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as His Father, in the womb of a virgin, will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva, in the brain of Jupiter."
Thomas Jefferson



"I've never understood how God could expect his creatures to pick the one true religion by faith - it strikes me as a sloppy way to run a universe."
Robert A. Heinlein

"When did I realize I was God? Well, I was praying and I suddenly realized I was talking to myself."
Peter O'Toole

"Praying: To ask that the laws of the universe be annulled on behalf of a single petitioner confessedly unworthy."
Ambrose Bierce

"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 Philips

"How wise are thy commandments, Lord. Each of them applies to somebody I know."
Samuel Levenson

"The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people."
G.K. Chesterton



"The blackest billingsgate, the most ungentlemanly insolence, the most yahooist brutality, is patently endured, countenanced, propagated, and applauded. But touch a solemn truth in collision with the dogma of a sect, though capable of the clearest proof, and you will soon find you have disturbed a nest, and the hornets will swarm about your eyes and hand, and fly into your face and eyes."
John Adams

"Those of little faith are of little hatred."
Eric Hoffer

"Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion - several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn't straight."
Mark Twain

"With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."
Steven Weinberg, winner of the 1979 Nobel Prize in physics

"Sin lies only in hurting others unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense."
Robert A. Heinlein

"There is only one honest impulse at the bottom of Puritanism, and that is the impulse to punish the man with a superior capacity for happiness."
H.L. Mencken

William Shakespeare
