A Christian telling an atheist they're going to hell is as scary as a child telling an adult they're not getting any presents from Santa.

All dogs are basically good. Your treatment of them determines whether they stay that way or not. It's the same with people.

Being offended provides no objective indication of right and wrong. It's nothing more than a barometer of your own emotional control.

Being on the edge isn't as safe, but the view is better.

Beliefs don't change facts. Facts, if you're reasonable, should change your beliefs.

Getting offended by a statement of fact does not make that fact any less true. But do continue to be offended by it. It makes me laugh.

God gave you free will so that you have the choice to either worship him or go to hell.

I can't believe I used to care so much about what strangers thought of me. Once you realize that doesn't matter you can really be honest.

If there is a God, why did He make me an atheist?

If you can't joke about the most horrendous things in the world, what's the point of jokes? What's the point in having humor? Humor is to get us over terrible things.

It seems to be true, particularly in middle America, that those most militant about using up fossil fuels, don't actually believe in fossils.

It's a strange myth that atheists have nothing to live for. It's the opposite. We have nothing to die for. We have everything to live for.

Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

Next time someone is critical of you, just consider their life, and smile quietly to yourself.

No one owns being good. I'm good. I just don't believe I’ll be rewarded for it in heaven. My reward is here and now. It’s knowing that I try to do the right thing. That I lived a good life.

Some of you are really smart. You know who you are. Some of you are really thick. Unfortunately, you don't know who you are.

Spirituality really lost its way when it became a stick to beat people with: 'Do this or you'll burn in hell.'

Suggesting I hate people with religion because I hate religion is like suggesting I hate people with cancer because I hate cancer.

The truth, however shocking or uncomfortable, in the end leads to liberation and dignity.

The worst thing about morons is, they don't understand just how stupid they are.

There's no difference between fame and infamy now. There's a new school of professional famous people that don't do anything. They don't create anything.

Twitter is a lot like religion: a great invention that makes billions and a fun distraction that really shouldn't be taken that seriously.

You do your own thing and you see if you survive.

You have options. You can either continue to be miserable or you can just stop being angry at everyone and accept the way things are. Allow yourself to live.

You should bring something into the world that wasn't in the world before. It doesn't matter what that is. It doesn't matter if it's a table or a film or gardening - everyone should create. You should do something, then sit back and say, 'I did that.'

You won't burn in hell. But be nice anyway.
