Surprisingly, no book of quotations on God and religion by atheists and agnostics exists. Luckily, for the millions of American nonbelievers who have quietly stewed for years as the religious right made gains in politics and culture, the wait is over. Bestselling author Jack Huberman's zeitgeist sense has honed into the backlash building against religious fundamentalism an Surprisingly, no book of quotations on God and religion by atheists and agnostics exists.

    It is easy to rate this book very highly because it is a compilation of quotes down the ages. It is really well put together. I remember coming across it in a book store and I just had to keep going. Some quotes were so funny. They highlight the absurdity of religion, especially the fu...

    If you want ammunition to answer the religious zealots and their less than enlightened ilk, look no further. The subtitle of this book is pretty accurate as it will give skeptics, non-believers, etc. plenty to think about and to toss back at those who like to cite verse of whatever the...

    Yes I believe that religion is one of the ills of society and would love to see people break down these silos and deal with life from a reality perspective. The programing of people as religious disciples from a young age propagates global dysfunction and will always impede global harm...

    A fantastic collection of quotable tit-bits from a wide range of non-believers (and the occasional believer too) including, scientists, philosophers, writers, actors and popes. Great to dip in and out of, and a good source of inspiration for seeking out the full works of some of the...

    At long last! Now I can return it to Dad. :) While I found many of the quotes amusing, inspiring, and enlightening, I was put off initially by the title. Although I am an atheist, I don't feel I need "ammunition" to support my non-belief or argue against someone else's belief. Even if ...

    Hilarious and highly acidic, thought-provoking, and very effective in achieving the author's aim of using collected thoughts from great people in just about every field throughout history to challenge every aspect of religious belief, organizations, and practice. ...

    This is a funny, thoughtful collection of quotes for the "hell-bound". I pick it up and down often and don't really sit and read it one page to the next Woody Allen: "I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve immortality by not dying." ...

    Pretty straight forward - a book of quotes about Atheists and atheism. I liked it, and found it pretty comforting actually. I was really surprised at how many quoted people there are. Who knew atheism was this popular, for this long? ...

    The Quotable Atheist is a nice collection of humorous antedates and quips that are both helpful to diffuse situations where theists are losing their cool, or to simply irritate them further. This is a nice, fun collection that is an good addition to any library. I often go to it for su...

    Really fun read with many fantastic quotes from surprising sources. From founding fathers to present day athletes and intellectuals alike, every page holds a surprising quote from someone you wouldn't necessarily expect. Much needed mental sustenance for those of us who don't believe o...

    "Read" is a bit of a misnomer... I merely stopped reading several pages in with no real intent to begin again. The quotes are well chosen, but I simply hadn't expected the compiler's notes to feature so prominantly. ...

    A must-read for any person of intelligence, i.e. "non-religious". Along the way you'll also get plenty of historical/social/political facts, commentary, and anecdotes from some of history's most famous and infamous. But also prepare to run the full gambit of emotions: a single page's w...

    The best book for intellectual quotes out there. If you come across a pretentious person who tosses a line out from some "educated" Christian, you can pop right back with quotes from Voltaire, Einstein, George Bernard Shaw, Thomas Jefferson, Mark Twain, Thomas Paine etc. etc. Also a...

    This is basically a collection of quotations regarding (disbelief) in religion. It's very interesting and I like to find different ones to add to my work email. They are also convenient when wanting to annoy that Christian we all know: racist, hypocritical, smug.... It's not really a r...

    The Quotable Atheist begins with an unexpectedly incisive introduction in which Huberman proves he is more than just a humourist. Capable of prose easily as thoughtful and penetrating as that of some of the more well-known atheist writers, he gets straight into it - what is religion, h...

    "Invisible Pink Unicorns are beings of great spiritual power. We know this because they are capable of being invisible and pink at the same time. Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorns is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that they are pink; we logica...

    There is no doubt that this book is strong ammunition for nonbelievers. This book will definitely inspire, amuse and challenge some. It is an unapologetic source for agnostic or atheists. I enjoyed this book. ...

    This book contains a great number of quotations, regarding disbelief in religion. The collection of quotes are from a diverse range of people throughout history; politicians, comedians, actors, feminists, scientists, ancient thinkers. This book pleasantly surprised me, because on eve...

    I looked forward to reading this book every evening. The collection of quotes are from a diverse range of people throughout history: ancient thinkers, feminists I had never heard of, modern-day actors, politicians, comedians. I imagine the author experienced great joy in collecting all...

    While it's a good collection of quotes, on the whole, it's marred by the author's factual errors and personal biasses. Just for starters, the St. Cyril who was involved with the philosopher Hypatia in 4th-century Alexandria is not the man who invented the "Cyrillic" alphabet; that happ...

    While this book does not tell a story, it provides much information and solid arguments that provide to be very entertaining. While I have always been agnostic, this book has strengthened my idea that if God(s) do(es) exist, he has no reason to care for us nor comply to our beliefs. Th...

    The longer I live, the less I believe in the existence of a higher power. Chaos rules, as proven by yesterday?s random shootings in Las Vegas by a gunman in the largest mass killing in American history. 28% of Americans believe in evolution, while 68% believe in Satan. Jack Huberman ...
