      1. Bill: "Do you always think this much, Charlie?"
      2. Charlie: "Is that bad?" I just wanted someone to tell me the truth.
      3. Bill: "Not necessarily. It's just that sometimes people use thought to not participate in life."
      4. Charlie: "Is that bad?"
      5. Bill: "Yes."

    10. "So I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them."

    11. "You listen to them, teachers, parents, politicians. They’re always saying, if you steal you’re a thief, if you sleep around you’re a slut, if you take drugs you’re a junkie. They want to get inside your head and control you with their fear."

      — The Russian Sleep Experiment

    14. "I’ll tell you what you did with Atheists for about 1500 years. You outlawed them from the universities, or any teaching careers, besmirched their reputations, banned or burned their books or their writings of any kind, drove them into exile, humiliated them, seized their properties, arrested them for blasphemy. You dehumanized them with beatings and exquisite torture, gouged out their eyes, slit their tongues, stretched, crushed, or broke their limbs, tore off their breasts if they were a woman, crushed their scrotums of they were men, imprisoned them, stabbed them, disemboweled them, hung them, burnt them alive. And you have the nerve enough to complain to me that I laugh at you."
      — Dr. O’Hair
       
       
    15. Here's a standard philosophical questionnaire for Christians. I challenge you to answer these basic questions honestly without resorting to a standard naked assertion, "because it's God" fallacy.

      1. 1: Do you believe that children should be responsible for the transgressions of their parents? If your great-grandfather committed a crime, should you also be punished for it?
      2. Response: If you don't believe in such a practice, how do you reconcile this fundamental moral tenet that you practice in your daily life, which is in contrast with Christianity and scripture, which mandates that descendants are responsible for the sins of their forebears?
      3. 2: Do you believe that ritualistic sacrifice and the killing of innocent creatures is a suitable way to repay a debt?
      4. Response: Can you see yourself ceremonially burning a goat at an altar to cover your electricity bill? Should you be able to sacrifice your child's life to repay a debt to someone else? If you don't think this behavior is appropriate or moral, why would you worship a deity who claims to have forgiven mankind via ritualistic murder?
      5. 3: Do you believe that morality comes from religion?
      6. Response: Does man not have any other reason than the fear of God to keep him from behaving badly? If so, how do you reconcile the fact that there are plenty of decent people who don't believe in gods? If not, how do you reconcile your liberal interpretation of things with scripture and institutions that suggest otherwise?
      7. 4: Do you believe that God knows our future? (Psalm 139:16)
      8. Response: If so, why does God allow children to be born into certain countries or cultures -- knowing in advance that they will never even hear about Christianity -- and then send them to hell for not believing in Jesus?
      9. 5: Do you believe that God is just?
      10. Response: If so, why does He give us no direct evidence of His existence when He openly revealed Himself to innumerable people over the course of a couple of thousand years? If God could save billions of souls from eternal damnation simply by showing himself publicly, is it not unjust for Him deny us this advantage which He granted so many people in the Bible?
