A Quote by Douglas Noel Adams on god, faith, religion, atheism, agnostic, philosophy, and logic

Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mindbogglingly useful [as the telepathically translating Babel fish] could have evolved by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.

The argument goes something like this: "I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing."

"But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. Q.E.D."

"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

"Oh, that was easy," says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed at the next pedestrian crossing.

A Quote by Terry Pratchett on humour, atheism, gods, polytheism, life, and worship

Rincewind shivered.  He was not, of course, an atheist; on the Disc the gods dealt severely with atheists.  On the few occasions when he had some spare change he had always made a point of dropping a few coppers into a temple coffer, somewhere, on the principle that a man needed all the friends he could get.  But usually he didn't bother the Gods, and he hoped the Gods wouldn't bother him.  Life was quite complicated enough.

A Quote by William Congreve on atheism, lawyers, poets, and women

Turn pimp, flatterer, quack, lawyer, parson, be chaplain to an atheist, or stallion to an old woman, anything but a poet; for a poet is worse, more servile, timorous and fawning than any I have named.

William Congreve (1670 - 1729)
