There is no bigot like the atheist. Atheism is indeed the most daring of all [bigoted] dogmas … for it is the assertion of a universal negative.
There are arguments for atheism, and they do not depend, and never did depend, upon science. They are arguable enough, as far as they go, upon a general survey of life; only it happens to be a superficial survey of life. – G. K. Chesterton
