9780061349157: The Atheist's Bible: An Illustrious Collection of Irreverent Thoughts

The Atheist's Bible is the first book of the Sound Bite Library, which also includes You Don't Have to be Buddhist to Know Nothing and The Book of I.

"All thinking men are atheists," Ernest Hemingway famously wrote. True? Here are quips, quotes, and questions from a distinguished assortment of geniuses and jokers, giving readers a chance to decide for themselves....

When I think of all the harm [the bible] has done, I despair of ever writing anything to equal it.
Oscar Wilde

SAINT, n. A dead sinner revised and edited.
Ambrose Bierce

There ain't no answer. There ain't going to be any answer. There never has been an answer. That's the answer.
Gertrude Stein

Do not let yourself be deceived: great intellects are skeptical.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Susan Ertz

God is love, but get it in writing.
Gypsy Rose Lee

Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of our own mind.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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.
George Bernard Shaw

Review:

This slim, attractive volume will amuse nonbelievers --and, ironically, cause them to spend hours reading about God and religion. (Boston Globe)

If atheism s going mass you need not just a sacred text but an easily portable one... (Philadelphia Inquirer)
