Atheists and Agnostics I agree, But.
If you do not agree with the critics of religions in many things they say you are religious fanatic. If you find that the truth of religion is proclaiming what they think about you are in their side, but a real believer. These are the common sayings of some famous atheists and agnostics:Francis Bacon: Atheism leaves a man to sense, to philosophy, to natural piety, to laws, to reputation; all of which may be guides to an outward moral virtue, even if religion vanished; but religious superstition dismounts all these and erects an absolute monarchy in the minds of men.My answer: Islam is compatible with sense, philosophy, piety, laws, and reputation. There is no monarchy one is free to find God and to reason with every thing in religion. Few are unseens are left to faith but almost every thing is amenable to mind. George Santayana: My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image to be servants of their human interests.My Answer: Man created religions or used religions to serve their interests. This is well described in the religion of Islam.Gore Vidal: I'm a born-again atheist.My answer: I am born-again Muslim and reborn every day Muslim I reassert my faith daily through the same tool Gore is using, human brain.Henny Youngman: I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up . . . they have no holidays.My answer: no comment I love the joke.Pearl S. Buck: When men destroy their old gods they will find new ones to take their place.My answer: This is the difference between finding your God or creating one.Pearl S. Buck: Believing in gods always causes confusion.My answer: Humans can confuse everything even religion. Every one of the major three religions came to us as one sect and people confused them and split them into many.Protagoras: As to the gods, I have no means of knowing either that they exist or do not exist.My answer: I have means the Bible and the Quran. I have no means to prove that man is not created by a God I have never found that chance can create a very complicated structure like me.Thomas Jefferson: Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear.My answer: I agree and I think Jefferson was a man who knew God.
