"Faith is something you believe that nobody in his right mind would believe." ~ Archie Bunker
"Faith is one of the world's great evils." ~ Richard Dawkins Source: THE NEW YORKER, Apr 2, 2006, p. 80.
"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
"A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything."
"Faith: not wanting to know what is true." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” ~ Heb. 11:1
"Faith is believing something you know ain't true." ~ Mark Twain
"Faith is the denial of observation so that belief can be preserved." ~ Tim Minchin
"Faith is the surrender of the mind; it’s the surrender of reason, it’s the surrender of the only
thing that makes us different from other mammals. It’s our need to believe, and to surrender
our skepticism and our reason, our yearning to discard that and put all our trust or faith in
someone or something, that is the sinister thing to me. Of all the supposed virtues, faith
must be the most overrated." ~ Christopher Hitchens
That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.
~ Christopher Hitchens
"The word faith is a
euphemism for hope and speculation. Indeed, the definition
of faith is belief in the unknown. And if I may borrow a
clichéd term, I, for one, have never had much faith in
faith. Since faith is an acknowledgment that the truth is
unknown, it is nothing more than wishful thinking, and the
wish is no evidence of anything beyond itself."
~ Vincent Bugliosi, author of Divinity of Doubt: the God Question TruthOut
"It is less important to stand up for what you believe is right, than to stand on right beliefs." ~ Harald Illig
"When you understand why you do not believe in other gods, then you will understand why I don't believe in yours."
~ Stephen F. Roberts
Book-learning plus curiosity is an excellent substitute for intelligence. ~ Harald Illig
If you think that you can be at your best
mentally and if you believe in god(s),
then you must think that the brain's capacity is infinite ~ Think about it.
Indifference, stupidity and dishonesty, in various degrees, are the only ingredients of faith.
