Are you an Atheist?

You are not alone!

Quotes from Humanists/Atheists.

Some of my favorites:

I do not believe in God, because I believe in man. Whatever his mistakes, man has for thousands of years past been working to undo the botched job your God has made.
- Emma Goldman

I'm an atheist, and that's it. I believe there's nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for each other.
- Katharine Hepburn

Religion is a sort of spiritual booze, in which the slaves of capital drown their human image, their demand for a life more or less worthy of man.
- Vladimir Lenin

An Atheist loves himself and his fellowman 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.
- Madalyn Murray O'Hair

Reality is what it is, not what you want it to be.
- Frank Zappa

I'm with you, Janet.

Astrophysicists can look back to within milliseconds of the Big Bang and reasonably extrapolate what has happened over the next 14 billion years.

Ask them what happened before the Big Bang and they will say "Well, we don't know. We will never know. It's a meaningless question. Nothing existed before space and time."

Ask a Christian the same question. "What happened before the Big Bang?"

God created the Big Bang. God has always been and will always be.

"What existed before God? Who created God?"

"Well, we don't know. We will never know. It's a meaningless question. Nothing existed before God."

Both viewpoints reach the same inexplicable point.

One brings with it an incredible amount of judgemental, philosophical baggage and requires you to accept it all on "faith".

The other brings nothing extra and doesn't require you to believe anything that can't be proven.

But they both wind up at the same place.

We. Don't. Know.

THAT, is the Trinity.

We. Don't. Know.
