Atheists by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me Atheists by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me
"All thinking men are atheists."
- Ernest Hemingway


I saw this quote at a cafe in my city's library and I was quite fascinated by it.

In a way I can't help but think about it and consider it to be at least a little true.

EDIT: Hey, shallow people. Think about this for more than one second before posting a comment. kthnxbai

But will a thinking man support a totalitarian atheist country that executes people and has intense censorship, i.e. USSR or DPRK?

I partly agree. I don't think that every atheist is really reflective. But I'm sure that there aren't religious thinkers. When I say thinkers, I mean real thinkers, people who are not afraid to question, to doubt.

George Lemaitre, Catholic Priest: Formulated Big Bang Theory
Gregor Mendel, Augustinian Friar: Founded the science of genetics
John Eccles, devout Catholic: Nobel Prize winning neurophysiologist
William Lane Craig, Evangelical philosopher: considered by many of his atheist contemporaries, including Christopher Hitchens, to be a tremendous intellect, rigorous scholar and one of the leading philosophers of time.
G.K. Chesterton, Catholic journalist: a prolific writer of social commentary, history, biography, fiction, philosophy, journalism and more; called by no less a mind than George Bernard Shaw, "a man of colossal genius." Considered by many to be one of the greatest stylists of 20th century literature. He anticipated postmodern relativism and noted that the world had become so fascinated with the faddish and novel that the only prohibition was orthodoxy.
Flannery O'Connor, lay Catholic: considered an important voice in American literature.
C.S. Lewis, Christian philosopher: distinguished Oxford scholar and longtime atheist converted in his 30's to become the leading Christian apologist of his time.
Gerald Schroeder, Orthodox Jewish physicist: received his BSc in 1959, his MSc in 1961, and his PhD in nuclear physics and earth and planetary sciences in 1965, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He worked five years on the staff of the MIT physics department. He was a member of the United States Atomic Energy Commission.
Thomas Aquinas, Catholic philosopher: an Italian Dominican priest, and an immensely influential philosopher and theologian in the tradition of scholasticism. He was the foremost classical proponent of natural theology, and the father of Thomism. His influence on Western thought is considerable, and much of modern philosophy was conceived in development or refutation of his ideas, particularly in the areas of ethics, natural law, metaphysics, and political theory. Aquinas wrote over ninety works on wide-ranging topics from epistemology to metaphysics. Interestingly, modern science is in agreement with much of Aquinas' thoughts on eternity and creation.
Max Planck, Lutheran physicist: He won the 1918 Nobel Prize in Physics and is considered the founder of Quantum mechanics.
Werner Heisenberg, Lutheran physicist: German theoretical physicist who made significant contributions to quantum mechanics, nuclear physics and quantum field theory
Freeman Dyson, Christian theoretical physicist: He has won the Lorentz Medal, the Max Planck Medal, and the Lewis Thomas Prize. He also ranked 25th in The 2005 Global Intellectuals Poll. He has won the Templeton Prize and delivered one of the Gifford Lectures.
Richard Swinburne, Christian philsopher: Oxford philosopher of science and religion, especially noted for his work on theodicy and cosmology. As a scientific philosopher, Swinburne argues that the nature of the universe, both in the fact that anything exists at all, and in the seemingly anthropic (created for human life) design of the universe, makes it more probable than not that God exists. Swinburne is one of several apologists who uses science as proof of the existence of God.

Except the friar called Gregor Mendel, the philosopers René Descartes, G. W. Leibniz, G. Cantor, K. Gödel, Mahatma Gandhi, Charles Darwin (theist/agnostic), and almost all the thinkers of the European past; and so on. "Thinking can make someone to be an atheist, or a theist but illiteration also can make one to be any of them." (quote from me, classic)

Funny quote and I actually like the stamp aswell... but can't help it, I must comment... XD
Don't forget the fact that a lot of our scientists (in the past and in our time, too) were actually religious :) As far as I know Albert Einstein had been one too :)

Again, I do like it... :D (and actually... for the everyday life I do see the paralell)

Your biased , since you are an atheist ,still why not? Generalize things it makes it simpler for people to understand. Also fitting more words on a tiny stamp wouldn't work.

If your an atheist ,and opinion is going to be that of an atheist.

It's like a Christian saying God exist , he's biased ,cause hes part of that group of people. of course your opinion is going to be effected by it. It's no reason to be ashamed , I mean I'm biased on some things.

It's easy to over look ,but our world view effect our thinking. Me if science hasn't proven it , then how can I put my trust in it. My world view is based off science , chemistry , history(though history can be lied about best to study many books to get the real answers.) ,etc.

My opinion is that god doesn't exist until proven. If it can be proven that a god of some kind actually exists, than you can consider me a believer. But, until then, I don't care or give a shit. I'm like an Agnostic/Atheist mix. I believe in stuff like ghosts, but not gods.

Also, this stamp is of a quote incase you didn't bother reading.

See it's common opinion in the atheist group, though the ghost ,and superstitious beliefs were a bit odd so you got that going for you, that's not typical. I assumed that was your point of view ,and it's mine too. Your not the only one who feels this way. also about the ghost have any good tales ? ,or just believe in them?

I did read it ,but still biased , If I didn't bother to read it would I of bothered to comment. Arrogant power trips ,love them! Its a biased quote , you posted it ,cause you're biased ,and agreed with it. Christians ,or people in that group are probably posting christian stuff ,and we're posting stuff to what we believe.

So , any stories in your gallery ,or anything interesting you'd like to share? I'd love to know about the experiences.

No , I don't call people crazy ,cause they believe in ghost do love to hear about them. I'm somewhat superstitious though I usually just say it's stress when I see something out of the corner of my eye.Sherlock Holmes,author r Conan Doyle, when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?

It just seemed to go with it , though in the end the wolf always turn out to be a fake.

He said that atheists are thinking men, and I was responding with what they were thinking, given the evidence.

Seriously, every atheist I've come across has this ironically "holier-than-thou" attitude about their lack of faith. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

I think Darkton is the perfect exemple of that , look at this:
[link]

Willingly seeks out something that goes against his opinion and then starts arguing to impose his will on others.
Im surprised he hasnt been banned yet but then again, DA is kinda slow taking down trolls so Self Righteous stalkers are much slower to take down.

So dont pay attention to him : )

I see where you're coming from. I know of a lot of Christians who blindly follow everything they've been taught, so they choose not to think for themselves. however I don't think having a religion or believing in God necessarily means you can't really think about or question things. that's my personal opinion
