Bart's opinion

Science has evidence, no certainties; alternology (quackery) has certainties, no evidence

Atheists do not believe there is no God, they simply do not believe there is a God.

Atheists are not disbelievers, they are unbelievers. Yes, there is a difference. Check the dictionary.

Religious freedom is the freedom to be as masochistic as you'd like. It is not the freedom to be as sadistic as you'd like.

The religions of the world have one thing in common: they all know that all the others are wrong. I'm not convinced that this is a good basis for mutual cooperation.

Any question best answered by ignorance, isn’t worth asking

Science without skepticism is not science. Religion with skepticism is not religion.

Mitt Romney is only following the Republicans' Prime Directive: People are a valuable resource. Exploit them.


Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then He is not omnipotent. Is He able, but not willing? Then He is malevolent. Is He both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is He neither able nor willing? Then why call Him God? (Epicurus)

Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich. (Napoleon Bonaparte)

Science is the poetry of reality (Richard Dawkins)

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away. (Philip K. Dick)

There was a time when religion ruled the world. It is known as the Dark Ages. (Ruth Hurmence Green)

Atheism is a religion like abstinence is a sex position. (Bill Maher)

Religious hatreds ought not be propagated at all, but certainly not on a tax-exempt basis. (James A. Michener)

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction. (Blaise Pascal)

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours. (Stephen Henry Roberts)

Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it 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)

Things Christians say

"We were convinced that the people need and require this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out." (Adolph Hitler, in a speech in Berlin on 24 October 1933)
