In the spirit of positive atheism

"And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence."
-- Bertrand Russell.

"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
-- Stephen Roberts

"Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man -- living in the sky -- who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do..And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time! ..But He loves you...."
-- George Carlin

"The easy confidence with which I know another man's religion is folly teaches me to suspect that my own is also."
-- Mark Twain

"To explain the unknown by the known is a logical procedure; to explain the known by the unknown is a form of theological lunacy."
-- David Brooks

"The beauty of religious mania is that it has the power to explain everything. Once God (or Satan) is accepted as the first cause of everything which happens in the mortal world, nothing is left to chance...logic can be happily tossed out the window."
-- Stephen King

"I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires."
-- Susan Anthony

and I can go on and on...



I stop asking the question "Who created it?" at Nature. I consider it supreme.

You go ONE step further saying "God created Nature" and stop there, without asking "Who created God?".

The difference is just a step more, its all in the mind. Nay its foolish if just one step creates/defines a world to you!

What really matters are the deeds, not the beliefs!
