Quote Of The Day

A place to post favorite quotes about atheism and other significant topics

I have been a quote collector and quote monger for at least as long as I have been an atheist, and likely much longer.  There is a fascination in me of those who are sufficiently skilled in language that they structure words into concepts and ideas and proposed actions which grab my attention and interest, whether it is John F. Kennedy's unabashed statement: "We choose to go to the moon and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard," Robert A. Heinlein's blunt expression: "If you've got the truth, you can demonstrate it.  Talking doesn't prove it. SHOW people," or Captain Kirk's subtle yet important tactical observation, having encountered and been challenged by the dauntingly huge First Federation vessel: "Not chess, Mr. Spock ... Poker!"

Certainly, atheism has had its share of skilled spokespeople, whose words have inspired and driven us, whether it was Madalyn Murray O'Hair, saying: "An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church," or Sam Harris, who noted that: "The only problem with Islamic fundamentalism are the fundamentals of Islam," or Aron Ra's far more succinct: "If you can't SHOW it, you don't KNOW it."

Consciously or unconsciously, I suspect all of us have learned and grown from such words and many others, becoming stronger and more mature, not just in our atheism but in ourselves, having heard such words as these, and that is the point of this group: not to just deal in quotes which praise and promote atheism but which advance the cause of knowledge, self-understanding and self-ownership.  Each of us have likely heard someone say something and think, "Wow!" and resonated to the significance of what they heard.

That's what I want to do here: share, learn, and grow, not just from THEIR words, but our own.

==========================

One suggestion for the main comment area of the group: Please keep your quotes to under 20 lines or 200 words.  That way, one entry won't dominate a given page of the comment area.  If you have a longer quote or speech which you think is significant, create a separate post in the group.

Please enjoy!

If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.
-- Gloria Steinem

But men can't get pregnant, and a particular group of them seem to have a studied indifference to women's desire to control their own bodies and therewith, their lives. Yesterday, four such men, plus one misguided woman, voted to take a long-established right away from women, a right that had been in place for not quite half a century. The opinions of a majority of Americans didn't matter. The legal principle of stare decisis didn't matter. Apparently, all that mattered was that they could successfully punch down on women for little other reason than that they could, and that they could justify their reasoning on legal technicalities.

So they did it, and this country is smaller, meaner, and less free because they did.

Stephen, I see it as being part and parcel of their indoctrination, as well as their attempt to maintain that indoctrination.  Truly, genuinely SAD.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie yesterday

 Loren I truly never understand it when people say they perceive god in the world around them, perhaps it's because I see the world as it is rather than the way I'd like it to be.

Comment was by Loren Miller yesterday

I hear and behold God in every object, yet understand God not in the least,
Nor do I understand who there can be more wonderful than myself.

— Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

An interesting take, Mr. Whitman. What if you substituted the word, “science” for “God?” Think that'd work better?

Comment was by Loren Miller on Thursday

The pattern and origin of all dictatorship is the surrender of reason to absolutism and the abandonment of critical, objective inquiry.
-- Christopher Hitchens

Which, among other things, demonstrates that the brand of dictatorship represented by religion is fundamentally incompatible with self-governance or democracy of any stripe.

And....look what happened after scump got voted in.....things fell apart.

Comment was by Loren Miller on Wednesday

The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.
-- Gustave Le Bon

This is the reason (or at least part of it) why my daughter left broadcast journalism for the intelligence community: she learned that people don't want to know the news so much as they want their biases reinforced. Granted, that isn't true in all cases, but it is in perhaps too many, and for a country like this, that is a dangerous trait to maintain.
