Bill Maher on atheism

Religion is a burocracy between man and God

"I am just embarrased that it (USA) is been taken over by people like evangelicals, like people who do not believe in sicence and rationality. It is the 21st century (...) the future does not belong to the evangelicals, the future does not belong to religion".

"Another reason why religion disgusts me, because it is arrogance parading as humility. There is nothing humble about somebody getting up there and saying: "Thank you God for this award". What they are really saying is "Thank you God for making me so wonderful and so talented".

"When you were a kid and they were telling you whatever you believe in religion, do you think if they had switched the fairy tales that they read to you in bed by the bible, you would know the difference? (...) Why do you believe in one fairy tale and not the other? Just because adults told you it was true and they scared you into believing it at pain of death, at pain of burning into hell"

"If you were born in Pakistan you wouldn't be believing in Jesus Christ right now, you would be believing in Mohamed"
