Famous Non-Theists


Published:

Jodie Foster — “How could you ask me to believe in God when there’s absolutely no evidence that I can see? “

Albert Einstein — “I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own — a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotisms.”

Katherine Hepburn — “I’m an atheist, and that’s it. I believe there’s nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other do what we can for each other.”

Issac Asimov — “Emotionally I am an atheist. I don’t have the evidence to prove that God doesn’t exist but I so strongly suspect that he doesn’t that I don’t want to waste my time.”

Ernest Hemingway — “All thinking men are atheists.”

Carl Sagan — “Where’s the evidence? Now, the word God is used to cover a wide variety of very different ideas, ranging maybe from the idea of an outsized light-skinned male with a long white beard who sits on a throne in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow — for which there is no evidence, none at all — to the view of Einstein, of Spinoza, which is essentially that God is the sum total of the laws of nature. And since there are laws of nature…if that’s what you mean by God, then of course there’s a God. So everything depends on the definition of God.”

Gloria Steinem — “By the year 2000 we will, I hope, raise our children to believe in human potential, not God.”

Thomas Edison — “I have never seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious ideas of heaven and hell, of the future life of individuals, or of a personal God.”

Andy Rooney — “Everyone starts out being an atheist. No one is born with a belief in anything. Infants are atheists until they are indoctrinated. I resent anyone pushing their religion on me. I don’t push my atheism on anyone. Live and let live. Not many people practice that when it comes to religion.”

Richard Dawkins — “We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further.”

Butterfly McQueen — “As my ancestors are free from slavery, I am free from the slavery of religion.”

George Bernard Shaw — “The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one.”

Stephen Hawking — “When people ask me if a god created the universe, I tell them that the question itself makes no sense. Time didn’t exist before the big bang, so there is no time for god to make the universe in. It’s like asking directions to the edge of the earth. Earth is a sphere; it doesn’t have an edge, so looking for it is a futile exercise. We are each free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is: There is no god. No one created our universe, and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization. There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that I am extremely grateful.”

Frank Lloyd Wright — “I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.”

Woody Allen — “Not only is there no god, but try getting a plumber on weekends.”
