“Real life is about accepting ups and downs, the good and the bad, the possibility of failure as well as the ambition to succeed. Atheism speaks to the truth about our human nature because it recognizes all this and does not seek to shield us from the truth by myth and superstition”
Julian Baggini

“Morality is more than possible without God, it is entirely independent of him.”
Julian Baggini, Atheism: A Very Short Introduction

“Philosophy without criticism is like hunting deer without a shotgun, so, if you want people to like you, avoid robust philosophical debate.”
Julian Baggini, The Duck That Won the Lottery: and 99 Other Bad Arguments
