Ted Gup

“I had nearly forgotten how death plays out over time — not the biological episode that collapses it all into a nanosecond of being and nonbeing, but the slower arc of our leaving — sorting through the mail, paying the bills, stumbling upon notes. . . Have I no more than these solicitations, the invitations, these letters delivered late? I do. I have memories. I have places where I feel both his closeness and his distance. And I have the all-too-brief visitations allowed in dreams. For the nonbeliever I’ve become, it is what passes for an afterlife.”

Simon Pegg

As an atheist, I'd skip the prayer and go straight to the colonel, who is arguably the god of affordable, bucket housed fried chicken bits.”

Louis C.K.

“I'm not religious! I don't know if there's a God, but that's all I can say, honestly, is I don't know!”

Victor Stenger

“Science flies you to the moon. Religion flies you into buildings.”

Jerry DeWitt

“Skepticism is my nature, freethought is my methodology, agnosticism is my conclusion after 25 years of being in the ministry, and atheism is my opinion.”

Robin Williams

“And the next day the miracle occurred, crucifixion, resurrection, and he rose again from the dead and if he sees his shadow another 2000 years of guilt.”

Jamie Kilstein

“So my take is if I get up to Heaven and there is a God and he’s like, ‘You were wrong, how did you live your life?’ And I’m like, ‘I tried to help people, I tried to give to charity, I didn’t know if you were real, there was no evidence.’ And he was like, ‘Well, you didn’t worship me everyday.’ And I’m like, ‘Fine. Send me wherever is as far away from here as possible because you’re a sociopath!’”

Andrew Hozier-Byrne

“I still wouldn’t define myself as an atheist – it’s too absolute. But I don’t have any faith. I think faith is an absurd thing but I’m OK with that. There are no answers because the universe never asked a question in the first place.”

Flo Kennedy

“It's interesting to speculate how it developed that in two of the most anti-feminist institutions, the church and the law court, the men are wearing the dresses.”
