Synopsis

Atheist's Bible by Joan Konner

All thinking men are atheists , Ernest Hemingway famously wrote. True? Here are quips, quotes and questions from a distinguished assortment of geniuses and jokers, giving readers a chance to decide for themselves...Includes comments from: Woody Allen, Isaac Asimov, Samuel Beckett, Luis Bunuel, Albert Camus, Fidel Castro, Noam Chomsky, Umberto Eco, Albert Einstein, Joseph Heller, Christopher Hitchens, Aldous Huxley, Friedrich Nietzche, Peter O'Toole, Salman Rushdie, Bertrand Russell, Emo Philips, Frank Sinatra, Kurt Vonnegut and Frank Zappa. When I think of all the harm [the Bible] has done, i despair of ever writing anything to equal it - Oscar Wilde SAINT, n. A dead sinner revised and edited - Ambrose Bierce There ain't no answer. There ain't going to be an answer. There never has been an answer. That's the answer - Gertrude Stein Is man just one of God's mistakes? Or is God one of man's? - Friedrich Nietzsche Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon - Susan Ertz God is love, but get it in writing - Gypsy Rose Lee If we believe absudities, we shall commit atrocities - Voltaire The fact that a believer is happier than a sceptic is no more to the point than the fact a drunken man is happier than a sober one - George Bernard Shaw

Reviews

'A collections of 'irreverant thoughts'
from notable atheists. There

's rather a lot of Arthur C Clarke and Woody Allen. But then there would be.'
Time Out (4 stars)



'This slim, attractively produced volume will amuse nonbelievers - and, ironically, cause them to spend hours reading about God and religion'
The Boston Globe

'If atheism's going mass you need not only a sacred text but an easily portable one'
Philadelphia Inquirer
