They argue that the negative approach and terrible political decisions made by Bush as the president have been a circumstance of his religious outlook even if that is not the cause behind any of them. Hence, bushs inclusion amongst the theist has hurt the category more in recent time then helped just like the inclusion of Socrates of Jean-palm stare helped provide sufficient matter for the theists to benefit from in the long run (Viney, 2004).
Some of the famous quotes that have been said in arguments that centered on theism and atheism are (Miller, 2003):
From Alexander Pope: “Atheists put on false courage and alacrity in the midst of their darkness and apprehensions, like children who, when they fear to go in the dark, will sing for fear” (Miller, 2003).
From Sir Isaac Newton: “Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the Earth at the right distance from the Sun to receive proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance” (Miller, 2003).
From Francis Thompson: “Maybe the atheist cannot find God for the same reason a thief cannot find a policeman.”
From Plato: “Atheism is a disease of the soul before it becomes an error of understanding.
From Voltaire: “The atheists are for the most part imprudent and misguided scholars who reason badly who, not being able to understand the Creation, the origin of evil, and other difficulties, have recourse to the hypothesis the eternity of things and of inevitability” (Miller, 2003).
The philosophies of atheism and theism have throughout history butted heads on which had more practical evidence of existence and which is better for the human society in general. Even though the theist philosophy has more often than not been the philosophy that has had more logical and supported arguments, the fact of the matter is that most of Marxs work and work from other significant atheists like Ernst Haeckel still influences a large portion of the human race. Hence the argument between the two philosophies is by no means over.
