atheists quote

As an atheist, I see nothing “wrong” in believing in a God. I don’t think there is a God, but belief in him does no harm. If it helps you in any way, then that’s fine with me. It’s when belief starts infringing on other people’s rights when it worries me. I would never deny your right to believe in a God. I would just rather you didn’t kill people who believe in a different God, say. Or stone someone to death because your rulebook says their sexuality is immoral. It’s strange that anyone who believes that an all-powerful all-knowing, omniscient power responsible for everything that happens, would also want to judge and punish people for what they are.
—  Ricky Gervais: Why I’m an Atheist
Don’t lie to the children
Don’t make them afraid
If you tell them lies
They will believe

Don’t frighten the children
With demons and gods
Soon you’ll have to explain
The evens and odds

Don’t blame the children
They were taught by you
To believe in a power
Larger than the truth

Don’t harm the children
Don’t force them to fight
In wars you created
For the goodness of life

PAUL: We’d be idiots to say it isn’t a constant inspiration to be making a lot of money. It is to anyone. Why do business tycoons stay tycoons?

RINGO: We used to get in the car, and I’d look over at John and say, “Christ, you’re a bloody phenomenon!”and laugh - ‘cause it was only him. 

GEORGE: Ringo and I are gettin’ married to each other. But that’s a thing you better keep a secret. People would probably think we’re queers. 

JOHN: If you say you’re non-religious, people assume you’re antireligious. We’re not sure what we are, but we’re more agnostic then atheistic. 

Interesting quotes from the boys from an interview in Playboy Magazine, from the February 1965 issue. I don’t know what George’s is about! I think he’s going to be disappointed though, as Ringo was about to marry Maureen at the time!
