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!

Davy

 I have come across our governments freely available information that the stolen generation is not over. the Australian government is taking aboriginal children from their mothers to this very day. The old legislation was repealed in the 80,s and the practise "stopped" .

This is blatant bulldust because according to the governments own  records, the policy now falls under the auspices of the department of Human Services. Although the Non indigenous are now included, marginally,  and the rules have changed somewhat, it still goes on. physically and by threat.

These children are taken if it is deemed that the child is under threat in the family home. Possibly  from violence, drugs, abuse or alcohol.

 So If a couple drink a beer in a dry aboriginal settlement, they can loose their children. The child may complain to a teacher that parents are making the child do something it does not want  to do. (Parental discipline) The operative word is DEEMED.

"No" in all cases, Davy ... but just HOW does that relate to any of the quotes on this page?

Comment was by Davy on September 21, 2022 at 9:36am

Loren were you ever threaten with being taken from your mother?
Was your grandmother threatened with should she say who she was or passed on her culture to her children, they would taken her children off her?
That is my history.

Prayer seems to me a cry of weakness, and an attempt to avoid, by trickery, the rules of the game as laid down. I do not choose to admit weakness. I accept the challenge of responsibility. Life, as it is, does not frighten me, since I have made my peace with the universe as I find it, and bow to its laws.
-- Zora Neale Hurston, Dust Tracks on a Road

Total agreement, Ms. Hurston.

There is nothing funnier than being lectured on morality by a person who worships a pedophile.
-- Sophia Rodriguez, referring to a Muslim criticizing atheist morality

Oh, I dunno. There may be a few things funnier than that, but it's up there, for sure!

“A lot of havoc,” ????????........ Good grief, my cats can create “A lot of havoc,” on occasion!

Being an atheist activist, I'm a product of it, too, Davy, and I intend to answer their illogic and lies with facts and evidence, whether they like it or not.

And in the end, I think the "W" will be in OUR column.

Comment was by Davy on September 19, 2022 at 8:40am

Loren agree with your comment on Bjork's comment. Since I happen to be one of the products of that havoc.
