Atheist quotes!

I thought I would put up a few of my favorite Atheist quotes. After a little bit of googling, I realized that there are way too many quotes that I like. So I'll put up a few of the best ones, and a link to many more. I didn't research the accuracy of the quotes and who they are attributed to, mostly because it's the quote I like and it's irrelevant to me who said it. Although, If something is wrong, let me know and I'll change it.
