RE: Create your own skeptical quotes.
If salvation can only be achieved by having faith, and faith is a gift from God, then is it fair to say that atheists don’t have faith because God is a dick? ~ Full Circle

RE: Create your own skeptical quotes.
Can anyone imagine an omniscient God agreeing with Jesus? The power and depth of her thinking would be infinite, so she’d hardly be obsessed with the traditions, prejudices, rewards, and punishments of the ancient Jewish and Roman world, because she’d be bigger than that.

RE: Create your own skeptical quotes.
Good philosophy is best determined by considering the truth, which is the accurate depiction of reality; what has happened, and what is happening. Truth is not the depiction of something that never was or isn’t real. Most biblical authors knew they were lying when they invented stories about gods and miracles. A book based on deliberate lies shouldn’t be believed or revered. No religion is more important than truth.

RE: Create your own skeptical quotes.
If humankind had been left to reason things out, gods would have disappeared as people learned more about the world; replaced at first by common sense and intuition, and then by scientific explanations. Unfortunately, a largish part of humanity wasn’t left alone to follow this logical development. Certain groups of greedy people saw a business opportunity. They set out to keep others - at least unsophisticated, gullible others, puzzled by the fact random things happen. These raconteurs wrote and promoted holy books, and called themselves priests or prophets or rabbis or imams. They invented or appropriated gods to explain everything, and thereby used a whole arsenal of invented untrue nonsense to control people and benefit themselves.

The Bible should end with...'and they all lived happily ever after.'
Just like the other fairytales.

There’s nothing supernatural after death. “Heaven” is here and now, and is what we create on earth through love. Hell is also here; it’s what happens when we hate our fellow man. When it turns out there’s no god and no heaven, it won’t matter, because we’ll be dead!

RE: Create your own skeptical quotes.
Christian churches, inspired by greed, have been at war with science and humanity throughout most of their history. They’ve supported many social evils – wicked monarchies, slavery, racism, the oppression of women, homophobia, child labor and pedophilia. They’ve used indoctrination, lies, threats, wars, slavery, torture and murder pursuing power and money. This behavior has been far more terrifying and bloody than that of all the other religions of the world combined.

RE: Create your own skeptical quotes.
It’s astonishing that churches get away with promoting the bible as “God’s word.” The Catholic Church, who created the canon, didn’t let the average person read the bible in their native language for over a thousand years, maybe because they were quietly embarrassed by the content.

RE: Create your own skeptical quotes.
Christian teachers and parents don’t realize that big businesses are using them to fill children’s minds with so much superstitious nonsense it makes the advertising on television look small time. This promotional blitz aims to breed brand loyalty to a church. Brainwashed kids become compliant consumers, pliable people willing to part with their cash. They indoctrinate the next generation and the cycle continues. Churches have perfected the ploy that keeps them powerful by targeting youngsters. They make the corporations of the commercial world look like amateurs.
