Post ** STICKY ** Post any notable quotes you can find here.

if you remember a quote,find a quote or have a quote you use.post it here.

i can start you off with these three:

(these are notable to ME,there may be better one out there but this is what i got)

"It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt"

~Abraham Lincoln

"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime; give a man religion and he will die praying for a fish."

~theamazingatheist


"a lot of people would have said that i would have wiped my ass with the bible.i would never bother.because you cant use a piece of shit to wipe shit off of your ass that's just common sense"

~theamazingatheist
“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

"that's something they pull out of their ass and say:"oooh look its the truth" NO ITS A TURD MOTHERFUCKER.its not the truth.its a big'ol fuckin' stinknugget.you pulled it out of your ass...well...you pulled it out of a book that some ancient motherfucker pulled out of his ass."

~theamazingatheist

"a lot of you guys out there in the inter-webs have been leaving comments about my hair.i didn't know i had such a fashion sawy audience.what in all my videos would lead you to believe that i have good taste?how i maintain my appearance a fraction of a step better than the average street-bum.why do you pay so much attention to whats ON peoples head rather than whats IN them?"

~theamazingatheist

" "you cant prove god don't exist" yes we already did.see that?*shows book*GOD:the failed hypothesis how science shows that god does not exist by victor j stenger.its a dry-ass read,i don't recommend it.but it makes a clear case.GOD DON'T FUCKIN' EXIST.not the judeo-christian one anyway or any god that's in any of your mythologies.if it is a god out there it is FAAAAAAAAR greater than anything you or i or anyone could even imagine"

Post Re: post any notable quotes you can find here.

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."

I'm really curious why the OP has created 2 threads just to quote that fool. Seems rather divisive :geek:

I completely agreed. I've never thought he was anything more than angry and childish, and certainly not quotable. If you want a quotable provocative person George Carlin all the way!


Atheism is a non-prophet organization.
George Carlin

Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.
George Carlin

I have as much authority as the Pope, I just don't have as many people who believe it.
George Carlin

I think people should be allowed to do anything they want. We haven't tried that for a while. Maybe this time it'll work.
George Carlin

I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older; then it dawned on me - they're cramming for their final exam.
George Carlin

I would never want to be a member of a group whose symbol was a guy nailed to two pieces of wood.

Post Re: post any notable quotes you can find here.

clarifications:

Carlin was an awesome and genius individual.but i never got the chance too see anything he did.

and i can agree with you that TJ can be a childish asshole with a topping of douchebaggery.but that's what I liked about him when i first found him.you may not agree.that's ok with me.your entitled to your opinion.

i definitely agree that the quotes from Carlin is much better but since i never saw anything he did i had no reference.

i made both but i did not intend too.i accidentally hit the "post new topic" instead of "add new reply" and a moderator was quick on closing that topic.so no harm done right?

That is an incredibly stupid thing to say. If you remain silent you will never know that you are wrong in most cases and that goes contrary to just about every thing rational people tend to hold true.

It's just a meant to be a clever putdown not Life advice.

Like Winston Churchill's many awesome one liners...
Some Lady: You're drunk!
Winston Churchill: Yes, I am drunk. But by tommorow morning, I will be sober, and you will still be ugly.


Some lady: If I were your wife, I'd poison your tea!
Winston Churchill: If I were your husband, I would drink it!

Sorry, these two are probably not exact.

hey.it wasn't me who said it.and i think that particular line applies more to people who do not know what they are talking about.

that's the way it is with creationists.you don't know for sure if they are ignorant.but as soon as they open their mouths you get confirmation of your suspicion.

another great one from Churchill:

Right, I remembered Neil Tyson quoting Sagan, thanks.

Creationists make it sound as though a 'theory' is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night.
