What They Opined
Woody Allen      If only God would give me a clear sign!  Like making a large deposit in my name at a Swiss bank.
Isaac Asimov      Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.
Charlie Chaplin      I want to play the role of Jesus.  I am a logical choice.  I am a Jew, and I am a comedian...And, I am an atheist, so I'd be able to look at the character objectively.  Who else could do that?
Noam Chomsky      Three-quarters of the American population literally believes in religious miracles.  The numbers who believe in the devil, resurrection, God does this and that -- astonishing.  These are numbers that don't exist anywhere else in the industrial world.
Albert Einstein      I do not believe in a personal god...If something in me can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.
Sigmund Freud      The religions of mankind must be classed among the mass-delusions of this kind.  No one, needless to say, who shares a delusion ever recognizes it as such.
Saint Paul (nee Saul)      Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Ayn Rand

in the known history of mankind.}  
  If devotion to truth is the hallmark of morality, then there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking...The alleged shortcut to to knowledge, which is faith, is only a short-circuit destroying the mind.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild, 1790       Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws nor who sits on the throne.
Carl Sagan       You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, but is based on a deep-seated need to believe.
Israel Bashevis Singer      We must believe in free will.  We have no choice.
Steven Weinberg      Religion is an insult to human dignity.
Henny Youngman      I once wanted to become an atheist.  I gave up on the idea.  They have no holidays.
