Atheist Quotes

A hardcore atheist would cling to the belief that ‘on the first day, man created God.’ Atheists are multiplying as society gets more and more liberal. With inputs streaming out from television, internet and ideologies are subject to change. We are all born free until one day; we find ourselves bound by overbearing shackles of obligation. Be it family or an arbitrary evangelist, we are either brainwashed or emotionally blackmailed into worshipping the gods that purportedly transcend everything else in this world. Atheists embark on a godless journey either to sustain convenient way of living or to reinstate their lack in conviction in religion as a whole. As war prevails and riots breakout every fortnight, religion is condemned by many and regarded as the root of all evils, next to money and power. However, the escalation in atheists doesn’t quell the remaining population’s blazing loyalty in religion. In fact, an atheist may instigate the very opposite, provoking one to prove the supremacy of his or her respective god. Given below is an assortment of interesting quotes.
