    And so to those of you who may be vitalists I would make this prophecy: what everyone believed yesterday, and you believe today, only cranks will believe tomorrow.

    * Francis Crick (1967)

    This one is dedicated to... well I'm sure they'll know

    The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this.

    * Albert Einstein, Gutkind Letter (3 January 1954)

    Just another intellectual being snarky about religion.

    Curious, IG. Do you ever slip and say "Oh My God" or "Thank God" or "God damn"?

    To be fair: A few of those quotes were by non-Atheists...

    Examples: James Madison was a Deist, though obviously with some strong anti-organized religion feelings, and Epicurus was kind of a "Poly-Deist," in that he believed in the Greek Gods, but believed that they did not interfere in human affairs.

    I know it wasn't directed at me...but ever since the new Battlestar Galactica came out, I've been saying, "Gods-dammit!" (They say that on that show...)

    Imagine that an intellectual being snarky about a primitive concept.
    You will always do what you think, if you think you cannot change because that is always who you were - that is always who you will be. If you think you decide who you are despite what you have done in the past, and can decide who you are today you will. Do not chain yourself to the past or the future, but what you can decide in the present.

    And if I yes to using common vernaculars you'll imply in means something? Perhaps you should actually pay attention to those intellectuals, you might learn something

    Albert Einstein did not class himself as a Atheist either.

    This is one of my favourite quotes in general:

    I believe in God, only I spell it Nature. - Frank Lloyd Wright

    Although I'm not sure whether everyone would agree that it's an atheist quote.

    Did he actually class himself as anything in particular? I've always wondered... a lot of people say he was a pantheist, and although some of the things he said sound very pantheist to me, I don't think he ever called himself one.

    "My position concerning God is that of an agnostic. I am convinced that a vivid consciousness of the primary importance of moral principles for the betterment and ennoblement of life does not need the idea of a law-giver, especially a law-giver who works on the basis of reward and punishment."

    Albert Einstein
