"I cannot conceive of a God who rewards and punishes his creatures, or has a will of the kind that we experience in ourselves. Neither can I nor would I want to conceive of an individual that survives his physical death; let feeble souls, from fear or absurd egoism, cherish such thoughts. I am satisfied with the mystery of the eternity of life and with the awareness and a glimpse of the marvelous structure of the existing world, together with the devoted striving to comprehend a portion, be it ever so tiny, of the Reason that manifests itself in nature." Albert Einstein
"Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction." Blaise Pascal
"Opposing one species of superstition to another, set them a-quarreling; while we ourselves, during their fury and contention, happily make our escape into the calm, though obscure, regions of philosophy." David Hume

Hi ladies, bout time they made an atheist/agnostic board!
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.
A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
Not really a philosopher, but anthropologist Ernest Becker's book "Denial of Death" really helped me to understand why people have religious beliefs. That was key for me being able to break free from religion.
I love listening to Richard Dawkins, a biologist and one of the more vocal atheists, and Daniel Dennett, Professor at the Center for Cognitive Studies, Tufts University.
