Richard Dawkins Quotes About Atheist

Browse 9 famous quotes of Richard Dawkins about Atheist.

"It is possible to conceive, Anselm said, of a being than which nothing greater can be conceived. Even an atheist can conceive of such a superlative being, though he would deny its existence in the real world. But, goes the argument, a being that doesn't exist in the real world is, by that very fact, less than perfect. Therefore we have a contradiction and, hey presto, God exists!" ~ Richard Dawkins
"Everybody is an atheist in saying that there is a god - from Ra to Shiva - in which he does not believe. All that the serious and objective atheist does is to take the next step and to say that there is just one more god to disbelieve in." ~ Richard Dawkins
"The atheist view is correspondingly life-affirming and life-enhancing, while at the same time never being tainted with self-delusion, wishful thinking, or the whingeing self-pity of those who feel that life owes them something." ~ Richard Dawkins
"To hell with you, Buddy. No policeman wants to protect a goddamned atheist. I hope somebody bloodies you up good." ~ Richard Dawkins
"If you're an atheist, you know, you believe, this is the only life you're going to get. It's a precious life. It's a beautiful life. Its something we should live to the full, to the end of our days. Where if you're religious and you believe in another life somehow, that means you don't live this life to the full because you think you're going to get another one. That's an awfully negative way to live a life. Being a atheist frees you up to live this life properly, happily and fully" ~ Richard Dawkins
"Indeed, organizing atheists has been compared to herding cats, because they tend to think independently and will not conform to authority." ~ Richard Dawkins
"If children understand that beliefs should be substantiated with evidence, as opposed to tradition, authority, revelation or faith, they will automatically work out for themselves that they are atheists." ~ Richard Dawkins
"These facts about today's political climate in the United States, and what they imply, would have horrified Jefferson, Washington, Madison, Adams and all their friends. Whether they were atheists, agnostics, deists or Christians, they would have recoiled in horror from the theocrats of early 21st-century Washington." ~ Richard Dawkins
"We are all atheists about most of the gods that societies have ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further." ~ Richard Dawkins
