My favorite so far:

And yes, I do go to church and appreciate my religion. So no I am not against it.

Well I will say it, "praise the lord and pass the Ammunition" should read "pass the lord and praise the ammunition".

My favorites so far:

This one shows than many humans myself included are in fact more perfect than god.

Quote:
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins

Some other ones I like.

Gods dont kill people. People with Gods kill people. - David Viaene

Atheists will celebrate life, while you’re in church celebrating death. - Anonymous

I'll stick with #59

We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further. - Richard Dawkins

This one is just damn funny:

"I still say a church steeple with a lightning rod on top shows a lack of confidence. - Doug McLeod"


But this one just makes total sense.

"Atheism leaves a man to sense, to philosophy, to natural piety, to laws, to reputation; all of which may be guides to an outward moral virtue, even if religion vanished; but religious superstition dismounts all these and erects an absolute monarchy in the minds of men. - Francis Bacon"

I never really thought about it that way, but it really is the ULTIMATE absolute monarchy/dictatorship.

And this, is just freakin' hilarious:

"I wonder who got the shit job of scouring the planet for the 15000 species of butterfly or the 8800 species of ant they eventually took on board Noah’s Ark. But at least we got that magical rainbow for all their trouble. - Azura Skye"

If I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of their lives and not the pattern of their words. I think he would prefer an honest and righteous atheist to a TV preacher whose every word is God, God, God, and whose every deed is foul, foul, foul. - Isaac Asimov

Number 10 on the list. Yes, yes, yes and yes. Here in SA over the last year or two a farmer from Greytown has become famous for his religious preachings, doing tours and managing to pack sports stadiums full of people at his events.

Last year a conference for men held on his farm called the Mighty Men Conference drew 60 000 men (yes, sixty thousand). This year the expected turnout will be 250 000.

Something he loves repeating in his "sermons" is that good people do not go to heaven, only religious people do.

Excuse me? I know plenty wifebeaters, drunks and cheats that sit in church every Sunday. Then again, I know people that are not religious that would give you the shirt off their backs.

Just recently a well-known retired sports star in SA that has been proclaiming his Christianity and is married to a well-known singer has been caught on video sniffing drugs and having sex with a prostitute. Since this story broke other women have also come forward claiming that he had sex with them while married to his current wife, one of them also a well known figure in athletic circles.

I may also say that this guy and the singer started their affair while he was still married to his first wife.

Does he really expect me to believe that God, if He exists, will overlook the person that has led a good life and has helped others in favour of a criminal and cheater as in the above example that goes to church every Sunday?

And the sad part is that a large group of people in this country buys this man's bullshit.

The preacher's name is Angus Buchan if anyone wants to google his name.
