Voltaire

The only excuse for God is that he doesn`t exist.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Life`s a mixed bag, no matter who you are. Look at Jesus. He was the Son of God, for God`s sake, and look how that turned out.

About Time (movie)

I believe in no God, no invisible man in the sky. But there is something more powerful than each of us, a combination of our efforts, a Great Chain of industry that unites us...

C. J. Anderson

Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he`s destroying is this God he`s worshiping.

Hubert Reeves

The religious reply to the moral sceptic`s question, `Why should I behave in such-and-such a way?` is simply `Because God requires it of you.` But this is merely a polite way of saying, `Because you`ll be punished if you don`t. [...] But a threat is never a logical justification for acting one way rather than another. If there exists a deity with the punitive vengefulness of the Judaeo-Christian variety, then it might be prudent to obey it, and thus avoid the flames of hell; but the threat of punishment is not a principled reason for obedience.

A. C. Grayling

If love [...] is the reason for being moral, what relevance does the existence or non-existence of a deity have? Why can we not be prompted to the ethical life by our own charitable feelings? The existence of a god adds nothing to our moral situation, other than an invisible policeman who sees what we do (even in privacy and under cover of night), and a threat of post-mortem terrors if we misbehave. Such additions are hardly an enrichment of the moral life, since the underpinning they offer consists of fear and threats of punishment: which is exactly what, among other things, the moral life seeks to free us from.

A. C. Grayling
