from thousands of famous people

From Mount Hollywood, Los Angeles Looks Rather Nice, Enveloped In A Haze Of Changing Colors. Actually, And In Spite Of All The Healthful Sunshine And Ocean Breezes, It Is A Bad Place - Full Of Old, Dying People, Who Were Born Old Of Tired Pioneer Parents, Victims Of America - Full Of Curious Wild And Poisonous Growths, Decadent Religious Cults And Fake Science, And Wildcat Enterprises, Which, With Their Aim For Quick Profit, Are Doomed To Collapse And Drag Down Multitudes Of People.
~ Louis Adamic
Intellectually, Religious Emotions Are Not Creative But Conservative. They Attach Themselves Readily To The Current View Of The World And Consecrate It.
~ John Dewey

It Was, Of Course, A Lie What You Read About My Religious Convictions, A Lie Which Is Being Systematically Repeated. I Do Not Believe In A Personal God And I Have Never Denied This But Have Expressed It Clearly. If Something Is In Me Which Can Be Called Religious Then It Is The Unbounded Admiration For The Structure Of The World So Far As Our Science Can Reveal It.
~ Albert Einstein, Letter, 24 March 1954. Quoted in "Albert Einstein: The Human Side, " edited by Helen Dukas and Banesh Hoffman

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
When I Was Young I Had An Elderly Friend Who Used Often To Ask Me To Stay With Him In The Country. He Was A Religious Man And He Read Prayers To The Assembled Household Every Morning. But He Had Crossed Out In Pencil All The Passages That Praised God. He Said That There Was Nothing So Vulgar As To Praise People To Their Faces And, Himself A Gentleman, He Could Not Believe That God Was So Ungentlemanly As To Like It.
~ W. Somerset Maugham
Do Not Believe In Anything Simply Because You Have Heard It. Do Not Believe In Anything Simply Because It Is Spoken And Rumored By Many. Do Not Believe In Anything Simply Because It Is Found Written In Your Religious Books. Do Not Believe In Anything Merely On The Authority Of Your Teachers And Elders. Do Not Believe In Traditions Because They Have Been Handed Down For Many Generations. But After Observation And Analysis, When You Find That Anything Agrees With Reason And Is Conducive To The Good And Benefit Of One And All, Then Accept It And Live Up To It.
~ The Buddha
The Three Most Important Parts A Man Has Are, Briefly, His Private Parts, His Money And His Religious Beliefs.
~ Samuel Butle
You Are Never Dedicated To Something You Have Complete Confidence In. No One Is Fanatically Shouting That The Sun Is Going To Rise Tomorrow. They Know It Is Going To Rise Tomorrow. When People Are Fanatically Dedicated To Political Or Religious Faiths Or Any Other Kinds Of Dogmas Or Goals, Its Always Because These Dogmas Or Goals Are In Doubt.
~ Robert M. Pirsig
