Matt Dillahunty Quotes
  1. “The truth has nothing to fear from inquiry”.
    — Matt Dillahunty
  2. “I’ve reasonable expectations based on evidence, I’ve trust that has been earned – I’ll grant trust tentatively. I don’t have faith, faith is the excuse people give for believing something when they don’t have evidence.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  3. “Either God exists or it doesn’t exist. If a God does exist, it either interacts with the universe in some detectable way or it doesn’t. If it doesn’t that God is indistinguishable from a non-existent God. That only leaves a God who interacts with the universe in some detectable way. But if science, which is the greatest realization of the use of our sense to you know, detect things hasn’t found this God, that doesn’t say much for individuals.

    In short, the God you have created is in fact undetectable by science. The limits of science are not the province of religious knowledge. Where science is ignorant so is religion. The only difference is that religion lacks the integrity of science.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  4. “I get my limits from a rational consideration of the consequences of my actions. That’s how I determine what’s moral. I get it from a foundation that says my actions have an effect on those people around me and theirs have an effect on me and if we’re going to live cooperatively and share apace we have to recognize that impact. And my freedom to swing my arm ends at their nose, and that I have no right to impose my will over somebody else’s will in that type of scenario. That’s where I get them from. I get them from an understanding of reality, not an assertion of authority.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  5. “I want to believe as many true things and as few false things as possible.”
    — Matt Dillahunty

  9. “Evidently God stupidly creates a system where the devil wins by default. Okay, I’m gonna set up this game with you and I’m gonna give you all the chips and the chips have to voluntarily choose to come over to my side of the table. Who sets up a game like that?”
    — Matt Dillahunty

  12. “You are better than your God. You are better than your religion. So am I, so is damn near everybody on this planet. I wish you people would wake up and see this. Stop apologizing for this! Holds up the Bible. It’s not a good book, there is nothing good about it. All it does is poison minds. All it does it make you sacrifice your humanity. The only thing that you have that is of any value in order to sit around in deference to your Gods.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  13. “And yet people ask what the harm of religion and we cite all these different problems with religion. The global gag-rules and things like that, the oppression of different people but there is a bigger harm with religion and it’s the reason why I’m outspoken about it. And that’s because the average good Johnny in the pew person who is decent and kind and loving and good to their family and generally a good person to be around has polluted their mind to the point where they are unable to take credit for their accomplishments and responsibility for their actions. They are unable to interact on the interpersonal level with the people around them to build a community in this cooperative society where that is absolutely essential. They have got this mentality that they are worthless without God.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  14. “Your God isn’t real. He isn’t mortal. The Bible isn’t mortal. Islam isn’t mortal. None of these religious systems, anything that deteriorates the value of human beings, anything that hangs on the Bronze Age ideals about genocide and slavery and murder and deference to higher powers. None of those things are mortal. We have graduated beyond that and I’m sorry that we have had to drag religions kicking and screaming into the 21st century. But some of you gotta let this stuff go. You are not gonna get anywhere until you realize that it’s OK not to be afraid. It’s okay to say ‘you know, I think slavery is wrong. I think slavery was probably always wrong. I think that you’re a good person and yeah it does sound like a crappy system.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  15. “The people who are constantly striving to apply skepticism to everything in their lives that ones who actually care enough about truth and care to try to avoid being wrong, and biased, and prejudiced, and clueless – those are people we need, and need to be.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  16. “I’ll live for me and for other real people. Until some God gives me five minutes of their time. They deserve none of mine.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  17. “The idea that the Christian God is just is directly contradicted by the idea that the Christian God is merciful. Perfect justice and any mercy are necessarily directly in contradiction because mercy is a suspension of justice.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  18. “Science is the only thing that disproves science, and it does it all the time.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  19. “I don’t know how we can fix a world where people have been so convinced that they are doing the right thing out of compassion and love and trying to help people when it is absolute poison. When it is absolutely destructive.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  20. “If I’ve done wrong to another person, the correct course of action is to apologize and make amends to that person and not blow it all off and hope that some God is going to forgive me and make it all go away. That sort of mentality is what allows people to not treat others in a way that is good.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  21. “If you care about whether or not something is true, faith has no place. Faith is not a path to truth, faith is gullibility, faith is the excuse people give for believing something when they don’t have a good reason, faith is the point at which you stop seeking the truth.”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  22. “How do you go about showing that faith is a good thing….without evidence?”
    — Matt Dillahunty
  23. “Thou shalt not own another person as property.”
    — Matt Dillahunty

    — Matt Dillahunty
