What are some famous quotes by famous atheists?

.I'm looking for famous quotes by famous atheists like Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens, and Dennett. I'm trying to collect some of their key quotations that embody their beliefs and arguments, things that can be easily remembered and carried around mentally. Most of these people, particularly Dawkins, have a lot of witty statements and logical reasonings.


  1. They are witty and resonable alright, go to the respective website and get them, I may need a lorry or a container to store em.....
  2. These aren't from the names you mentioned, but they are some of my personal favorites. A couple of them relate directly to Humanism versus Theism. I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day. --Douglas Adams Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead. --Kurt Vonnegut Faith in God means believing absolutely in something with no proof whatsoever. Faith in humanity means believing absolutely in something with a huge amount of proof to the contrary. We are the true believers. --Joss Whedon on humanism
  3. “I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.” - Richard Dawkins “After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life. Within decades we must close our eyes again. Isn’t it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it? This is how I answer when I am asked—as I am surprisingly often—why I bother to get up in the mornings.” - Richard Dawkins “Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.” - Richard Dawkins “Cloning may be good and it may be bad. Probably it's a bit of both. The question must not be greeted with reflex hysteria but decided quietly, soberly and on it's own merits. We need less emotion and more thought.” - Richard Dawkins “There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?” - Richard Dawkins “Personally, I rather look forward to a computer program winning the world chess championship. Humanity needs a lesson in humility.” - Richard Dawkins “Complex, statistically improbable things are by their nature more difficult to explain than simple, statistically probable things” - Richard Dawkins “I'm not sure this conversation can go any further.” - Richard Dawkins
