Inspired by a comment I made in my last article, I’m making a listicle of common atheist sayings, many of which I had objections to even when I was involved in the atheist movement.
I want to stick to quotes that I’ve actually heard atheists repeating and paraphrasing multiple times. And, it’s pretty hard to come up with a list like that, because any search for atheist sayings just turns up much more obscure quotes, voted up by… whoever hangs around websites that collect quotes. So, I’m sure I missed a few, and if commenters identify a bunch then I might make another listicle.
Before I get to the list proper, let’s start with a grumpy take on atheist quotememes. This is an image search for “atheist sayings”:
Atheists sure like quotes in overwrought fonts next to shadowed grayscale faces of celebrities. This felt worthy of parody, so I amused myself by making a Pikachu meme.
