Anthon St. Maarten
“You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was.”
Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny

Ambrose Bierce
Redemption, n. Deliverance of sinners from the penalty of their sin through their murder of the deity against whom they sinned. The doctrine of Redemption is the fundamental mystery of our holy religions, and whoso believeth in it shall not perish, but have everlasting life in which to try to understand it.”
Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil's Dictionary

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Yeah, I'm great. Nothing like witnessing a death match between gods when I'm trying to get some Cheetos. -Deacon”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Deity

Scott Cunningham
“We are not on this planet to ask forgiveness of our deities”
Scott Cunningham, Living Wicca: A Further Guide for the Solitary Practitioner

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Every man is a divinity in disguise, a god playing the fool.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Simona Panova
“Oh, he did look like a deity – the perfect balance of danger and charm, he was at the same time fascinating and inaccessible, distant because of his demonstrated flawlessness, and possessing such strength of character that he was dismaying and at the same time utterly attractive in an enticing and forbidden way.”
Simona Panova, Nightmarish Sacrifice

Chuck Palahniuk
“Nobody wants to worship you if you have the same problems, the same bad breath and messy hair and hangnails, as a regular person. You have to be everything regular people aren’t. Where they fail, you have to go all the way. Be what people are too afraid to be. Become whom they admire. People shopping for a messiah want quality. Nobody is going to follow a loser. When it comes to choosing a savior, they won't settle for just a human being.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Survivor

Calvin Coolidge
“Prosperity is only an instrument to be used, not a deity to be worshipped.”
Calvin Coolidge

A.C. Grayling
“If there is a deity of the kind imagined by votaries of the big mail-order religions such as Christianity and Islam, and if this deity is the creator of all things, then it is responsible for cancer, meningitis, millions of spontaneous abortions everyday, mass killings of people in floods and earthquakes-and too great mountain of other natural evils to list besides. It would also,as the putative designer of human nature, ultimately be responsible or the ubiquitous and unbeatable human propensities for hatred, malice, greed, and all other sources of the cruelty and murder people inflict on each other hourly.”
A.C. Grayling

David G. McAfee
“If there is a Creator-God, it has used methods of creation that are indistinguishable from nature, it has declined to make itself known for all of recorded history, it doesn't intervene in affairs on earth, and has made itself impossible to observe. Even if you believe in that God... why would you think it would want to be worshiped?”
David G. McAfee, Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist: The Guide to Coming Out as a Non-Believer

Terence McKenna
“Human beings are co-partners with deity in the project of being. This is the basis of all magic.”
Terence McKenna

Vera Nazarian
“In the desert, the only god is a well.”
Vera Nazarian, Dreams of the Compass Rose

Vera Nazarian
“Is it folly to believe in something that is intangible? After all, some of the greatest intangibles are Love, Hope, and Wonder.

Another is Deity.

The choice to be a fool is yours.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

“Belief is a wonderful way to pass the time until the facts come in.”
Carl R White

Vera Nazarian
“No Temple made by mortal human hands can ever compare to the Temple made by the gods themselves. That building of wood and stone that houses us and that many believe conceals the great Secret Temple from prying eyes, somewhere in its heart of hearts, is but a decoy for the masses who need this simple concrete limited thing in their lives. The real Temple is the whole world, and there is nothing as divinely blessed as a blooming growing garden.”
Vera Nazarian, Dreams of the Compass Rose

Criss Jami
“Religion, like science, is only noteworthy when it emphasizes a matter of what is true rather than whose belief is greater or lesser or which deity works for whom. Sincere religion and tested science are similar in that their assertions can be argued logically and objectively; otherwise, we get false cults and babble.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Christina Engela
“Ironically people will thank a deity for "letting" them win a race, but blame a "witch" if they stumble, look for the nearest suspect, and kill them. Why not blame the deity? Why not accept the setback as easily as they accept the victory/ Time people grew up some, I think - and stopped looking for theoretical "somebodies" to blame for their own misfortunes.”
Christina Engela, Blachart

Vera Nazarian
“For, what is order without common sense, but Bedlam’s front parlor? What is imagination without common sense, but the aspiration to out-dandy Beau Brummell with nothing but a bit of faded muslin and a limp cravat? What is Creation without common sense, but a scandalous thing without form or function, like a matron with half a dozen unattached daughters?

And God looked upon the Creation in all its delightful multiplicity, and saw that, all in all, it was quite Amiable.”
Vera Nazarian, Northanger Abbey and Angels and Dragons

James A. Haught
Ayer may be considered a practical atheist: one who sees no reason to worship an invisible deity.”
James A. Haught, 2000 Years of Disbelief

Toba Beta
“I know there is only one
Governor
Of
Deities.”
Toba Beta

“...With the failure of the imagination to present form the mind discovers that it has the capacity to conceive of the infinite, and thus has the power to transcend everything that sense can measure and thus present. The sublime feeling in this case arises from the play between the finite nature of the senses and the infinite capacity of reason.”
Nicholas Gane, Max Weber and Postmodern Theory: Rationalization Versus Re-enchantment

Ljupka Cvetanova
“In women he doesn't trust! He is an atheist.”
Ljupka Cvetanova, The New Land

André Malraux
“D'ailleurs, les hommes sont peut-être indifférents au pouvoir... Ce qui les fascine dans cette idée, voyez-vous, ce n'est pas le pouvoir réel, c'est l'illusion du bon plaisir. Le pouvoir du roi, c'est de gouverner, n'est-ce pas ? Mais l'homme n'a pas envie de gouverner : il a envie de contraindre, vous l'avez dit. D'être plus qu'un homme dans un monde d'hommes. Échapper à la condition humaine, vous disais-je. Non pas puissant : tout-puissant. La maladie chimérique, dont la volonté de puissance n'est que la justification intellectuelle, c'est la volonté de déité : tout homme rêve d'être dieu.”
André Malraux, Man's Fate

“There is a God! And his name be Awesome, the Mighty.”
Brian Clevinger, 8-Bit Theater

David Vann
“What would it feel like to be ravished by a god, to hold a deity.”
David Vann, Bright Air Black

Marsha Hinds
“On Atheism – If people continue to think of atheism as a kind of religion, then I demand all the perks that real religions get. I want to build big empty buildings where like-minded people can gather once a week to debate a non-existent deity. I want tax-exempt status. I want real food, not cheap wine and crackers. I want a rocking band. I want altar men! Not altar boys—altar MEN—and I want them to look like the chain-clad guy who hands an envelope to RuPaul at the beginning of “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar”.”
Marsha Hinds

Marsha Hinds
“On Atheism – One man’s religion is another man’s superstition and, when you’re an atheist, they’re all superstitions.”

“To see what God is like, we must look at Jesus. He perfectly represents God to men in a form which they can see and know and understand.”
William Barclay, The Letters to the Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians

Amy Leigh Mercree
“I allow the deities of compassion to fill me with light for the highest good.”
Amy Leigh Mercree, The Compassion Revolution: 30 Days of Living from the Heart
