Dear all,

We have made the decision to close the Atheist Quotes thread after listening to you here and discussing your concerns in the admin forum. The thread will still be visible but no one will be able to make further contributions to it. It will, in time, disappear from view under the weight of new and updated threads.
Thanks to those who contributed to the thread and all those who communicated their concerns here.
If anyone feels that a post on the Atheist Quotes thread is offensive, please feel free to hit the report button associated with that post.
kind regards,

Ben

Well, at least the last quote on that thread was a good one, it had a nice final touch
"I don't envision a single thing that, when developed & cultivated, leads to such great benefit as the mind. The mind, when developed & cultivated, leads to great benefit."

"I don't envision a single thing that, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about such suffering & stress as the mind. The mind, when undeveloped & uncultivated, brings about suffering & stress."

A quick thank you to the admin, moderators, and fellow members for taking the time to reflect on these sorts of issues.
