Famous Atheist Quotes
Keira Knightley (http://www.suggest.com/celebs/2116/17-celeb-atheists#slide/9/1)
“If only I wasn’t an atheist; I could get away with anything. You’d just ask for forgiveness, and then you’d be forgiven.”
Julianne Moore (http://www.suggest.com/celebs/2116/17-celeb-atheists#slide/13/1 )
When a reporter asked Moore what she’d say to God at the gates of Heaven, her response was
“Wow, I was wrong, you really do exist!”
Pitt was raised Southern Baptist, but soon began identifying himself as a blend of atheism and agnosticism. Pitt said: “I’m probably 20 percent atheist and 80 percent agnostic. I don’t think anyone really knows. You’ll either find out or not when you get there, until then there’s no point thinking about it.” http://www.suggest.com/celebs/2116/17-celeb-atheists#slide/14/1
“Even though I don’t believe in God, we celebrate pretty much every religion in our family with the kids. They love it, and when they say, ‘Are we Jewish?’ or ‘Are we Catholic?’ I say, ‘Well, I’m not, but you can choose when you’re 18.’”
Emma Thompson said: she regards religion with fear and skepticism
Christian morality is great, but is rarely practiced by religious persons
Although Freeman is famous for portraying God in films, the actor doesn’t actually believe in him. Freeman has said that he can’t believe in a creator without seeing any hard evidence.
Bardem was raised Catholic, but distanced himself from religion after his father died. The actor said it “suddenly all felt so obvious” that religion was just a way to cope with mortality.
“It’s perfectly clear to me that religion is a myth,” Hefner has stated.
