Atheism Quotes

Atheism Quotes:


“Opposition to godliness is Atheism in profession and idolatry in practice. Atheism is so senseless and odious to mankind that it never had many professors.”

– Sir Isaac Newton


“An atheist is someone who is certain that God does not exist, someone who has compelling evidence against the existence of God. I know of no such compelling evidence. Because God can be relegated to remote times and places and to ultimate causes, we would have to know a great deal more about the universe than we do now to be sure that no such God exists. To be certain of the existence of God and to be certain of the non-existence of God seem to me to be the confident extremes in a subject so riddled with doubt and uncertainty as to inspire very little confidence indeed.”

– Carl Sagan


“Atheism is a disease of the mind caused by eating underdone philosophy”

– Austin O’ Malley


“It’s important to understand that an atheist is someone who believes the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything. Some fundamental atheists will deny this by trying to redefine “nothing” as being “something” because such a thought makes them look like a fool which is precisely what the Bible says that they are (Psalm 14:1).”

– Ray Comfort


“Maybe the atheist cannot find God for the same reason a thief cannot find a policeman.”

– Francis Thomson


“Atheism is the most daring of all dogmas, for it is the assertion of a universal negative.”

– G.K Chesterton


“What can be more foolish than to think that all this rare fabric of heaven and earth could come by chance, when all the skill of art is not able to make an oyster? To see rare effects, and no cause; a motion, without a mover; a circle, without a centre; a time, without an eternity; a second, without a first: these are things so against philosophy and natural reason, that he must be a beast in understanding who can believe in them. The thing formed, says that nothing formed it; and that which is made is, while that which made it is not, This folly is infinite.”

– Jeremy Taylor


“Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning.”

– C.S Lewis


“A man that is endued with the powers of reason, by which he is capable of knowing, serving, glorifying, and enjoying his Maker, and yet lives without God in the world, is certainly the most despicable and the most miserable animal under the sun.”

– Matthew Henry


“An atheist is a man who believes himself an accident.”

– Francis Thompson


“An atheist’s most embarrassing moment is when he feels profoundly thankful for something, but can’t think of anyone to thank for it.”

– Mary Anne Vincent


“God exists whether or not men may choose to believe in Him. The reason why many people do not believe in God is not so much that it is intellectually impossible to believe in God, but because belief in God forces that thoughtful person to face the fact that he is accountable to such a God.”

– Robert A. Laidlaw


“Atheism is a crutch for those who cannot bear the reality of God.”

-Tom Stoppard


“The atheist risk everything for the present and the future, on the basis of a belief that we are uncaused by any intelligent being. We just happen to be here. That one is willing to live and die in that belief is a very high price to pay for conjecture.”

– Ravi Zacharias


“To be an atheist requires an indefinitely greater measure of faith than to receive all the great truths which atheism would deny.”

– Joseph Addison


“It is hard to see how a great man can be an atheist. Without the sustaining influence of faith in a divine power we could have little faith in ourselves. We need to feel that behind us is intelligence and love. Doubters do not achieve; skeptics do not contribute; cynics do not create. Faith is the great motive power, and no man realizes his full possibilities unless he has the deep conviction that life is eternally important, and that his work, well done, is a part of an unending plan.”

– Calvin Coolidge


“Atheism is a disease of the soul before it becomes an error of understanding.”

– Plato


“Still, even the most admirable of atheists is nothing more than a moral parasite, living his life based on borrowed ethics. This is why, when pressed, the atheist will often attempt to hide his lack of conviction in his own beliefs behind some poorly formulated utilitarianism, or argue that he acts out of altruistic self-interest. But this is only post-facto rationalization, not reason or rational behavior.”

– Vox Day


“The habit of arguing in support of atheism, whether it be done from conviction or in pretense, is a wicked and impious practice.”

– Marcus Tullius Cicero


“The freethinkers have yet to produce any objections that have not long been refuted most thoroughly. But since they are not motivated by the love of truth, and since they have an entirely different point of view, we should not be surprised that the best refutations count for nothing and that the weakest and most ridiculous reasoning, which has so often been shown to be baseless, is continuously repeated. If these people maintained the slightest rigor, the slightest taste for the truth, it would be quite easy to steer them away from their errors; but their tendency towards stubbornness makes this completely impossible.”

– Leonhard Euler


“The most notable spread of atheism was achieved through the success of the 1917 Russian Revolution, which brought the Marxist-Leninists to power. For the first time in history, atheism thus became the official ideology of a state.”

– “Investigating atheism: Marxism”. University of Cambridge (2008)


“Atheism is a bleak worthless ideology. It robs the brain of reason, the conscience of moral guidance, the mind of tranquility and the soul of hope.”

– Nana Yiadom


“Atheism is the result of ignorance and pride; of strong sense and feeble reasons; of good eating and ill-living. It is the plague of society, the corrupter of manners, and the underminer of property.”

– Jeremy Collier


“The irony of intolerant atheists is remarkable. They proudly declare their open-mindedness, and in the same breath they work feverishly to extinguish by force any mention of God, any support to theism, in civic life. Are you puzzled by this? Don’t be. Censorship is in atheism’s marrow. Moreover, atheism cannot withstand reasoned examination. The assertion that everything came from nothing, without reason and without moral law, isn’t defensible in rational discourse, so silent assent is necessary to hold sway over culture.”

– Michael Egnor


“Claiming that God does not exist, or that He is dead, is the expression, not of truth, but of hope, for nothing would please the unregenerate heart more than to be rid of God.”

– Dr. Joseph Thomas Kennedy


“No man will say, “There is no God” ’till he is so hardened in sin that it has become his interest that there should be none to call him to account.”

– Matthew Henry


“These days, barely a week passes without the emergence of yet more evidence that atheists are the most irritating people on Earth.”

– The atheist Brendan O’Neill, The Telegraph, How atheists became the most colossally smug and annoying people on the planet, August 14th, 2013.


“I have never cared about the “evidence” one way or the other, I know God exists, I just refuse to bow down to anyone.”

– Anonymous atheist blogger


“The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”

– The psalmist David, Psalms 14:1 (KJV)
