Greta Christina has an atheist meme of the day and this week she’s posting quotations. I thought that this was from Richard Dawkins, but perhaps he was quoting:
“I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.” —Stephen Roberts
This is a lovely quote for trying to get a theist to understand how their religion looks to the rest of us. It’s hard to believe I haven’t posted it yet. Thanks for reminding me, Greta!
