"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his own creation."
Albert Einstein

"To define Humanism in the briefest possible manner, I would say that it is a philosophy of joyous service for the greater good of all humanity in this natural world and according to the methods of reason and democracy."
Corlis Lamont

"It is said that men may not be the dreams of the Gods, but rather that the Gods are the dreams of men."
Carl Sagan

"The four characteristics of humanism are curiosity, a free mind, belief in good taste, and belief in the human race."
E. M. Forster

"Religions are all alike - founded upon fables and mythologies." Thomas Jefferson

"Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead."
Kurt Vonnegut

"I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death."
George Carlin

"Religions do make claims about the universe--the same kinds of claims that scientists make, except they're usually false."
Richard Dawkins

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"

"Creationists criticize evolutionists for the demeaning idea of 'coming from apes' and say that man is more noble than that, and then have sermons where man is called a miserable worm worthy to be burned eternally in hell."
William Bagley

"A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men."
Bertrand Russell

"Gods have done a lot in the past, will do a lot in the future, but are always strangely absent from the present."

"We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes."
Gene Roddenberry

"The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference."
Charles Darwin

"One might be asked "How can you prove that a god does not exist?" One can only reply that it is scarcely necessary to disprove what has never been proved."
David A. Spitz

"Humanism is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion"
American Humanist Association

"Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against error."
Thomas Jefferson
