8,024.  Babies have big heads and big eyes, and tiny little bodies with tiny little arms and legs.  So did the aliens at Roswell.  I rest my case.  (UFOs & Children & Baby)  William Shatner 

 

 

94,890.  The World Health Organization estimates that eleven million children die every year in the world of the Cold War victors ('the developing world') because of the unwillingness of the rich to help them.  The catastrophe could be brought to a quick end, the WHO study concludes, because the diseases from which the children suffer and die are easily treated.  Four million die from diarrhea; about two-thirds of them could be saved from the lethal dehydration it causes by sugar and salt tablets that cost a few pennies.  (Empire US & Foreign Relations US & Children & Health)  Noam Chomsky, Deterring Democracy p241 

 

 

26.  Why should I allow that same God to tell me how to raise my kids, who had to drown His own.  (God & Children & God's Fascism)  Robert G Ingersoll

 

 

401.  If there is a God who will damn his children forever, I would rather go to hell than to go to heaven and keep the society of such an infamous tyrant.  I make my choice now.  I despise that doctrine.  It has covered the cheeks of this world with tears.  It has polluted the hearts of children, and poisoned the imaginations of men ... What right have you, sir, Mr clergyman, you, minister of the gospel to stand at the portals of the tomb, at the vestibule of eternity, and fill the future with horror and with fear?  I do not believe this doctrine, neither do you.  If you did, you could not sleep one moment.  Any man who believes it, and has within his breast a decent, throbbing heart, will go insane.  A man who believes that doctrine and does not go insane has the heart of a snake and the conscience of a hyena.  (God & Hell & Children & God's Fascism)  Robert G Ingersoll, The Liberty of Man, Woman and Child

 

 

42.  God has blessed us so much I can’t afford to feed you any more.  (God & Children)  Monty Pythons The Meaning of Life 1983 starring Graham Chapman & John Cleese & Terry Gilliam & Eric Idle & Terry Jones & Michael Palin, director Terry Jones, Catholic father to children

 

5,193.  Father [to children]:  The mill’s closed.  There’s no more work.  We’re destitute.  I’m afraid I have no choice but to sell you all for scientific experiments.  (Work & Children & Experiment)  ibid. 

 

 

209.  I can’t believe that God created parasites in order to torture small children.  (God & Belief & Children & Disbelief)  David Attenborough, televised interview

 

 

220.  ... a God who could make good children as easily a bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave is angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice, and invented hell – mouths mercy, and invented hell - mouths Golden Rules and forgiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people, and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts upon man, instead of honorably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites his poor abused slave to worship him!  (God & Children & Commandment & Blame & Worship)  Mark Twain, No. 44, The Mysterious Stranger

 

 

228.  The best minds will tell you that when a man has begotten a child he is morally bound to tenderly care for it, protect it from hurt, shield it from disease, clothe it, feed it, bear with its waywardness, lay no hand upon it save in kindness and for its own good, and never in any case inflict upon it a wanton cruelty.  God's treatment of his earthly children, every day and every night, is the exact opposite of all that, yet those best minds warmly justify these crimes, condone them, excuse them, and indignantly refuse to regard them as crimes at all, when he commits them.  Your country and mine is an interesting one, but there is nothing there that is half so interesting as the human mind.  (God & Children & Cruelty & Crime & Mind)  Mark Twain, Letter from the Earth

 

 

7,462.  The most interesting information comes from children, for they tell all they know and then stop.  (Information & Children)  Mark Twain

 

 

68,373.  Familiarity breeds contempt – and children.  (Contempt & Familiar & Children)  Mark Twain                       

 

 

233.  When nonbelievers look carefully at stories in the Old Testament about God's relationship with his ‘children’, it can be difficult to avoid the conclusion that the relationship looks an awful lot like those which characterize abusive families.

 

The behavior, attitude, and demands of God in the Old Testament are very similar to the behavior, attitude, and demands made by abusive fathers and husbands.  (God & Children & Old Testament)  Austin Kline, Board post 26th September 2007 ‘God as an Abusive Father’

 

 

299.  When a child has bone cancer, how can you say there is a living God?  (God & Children)  Stephen Fry, in conversation with Christopher Hitchens

 

 

464.  Any system of religion that has anything in it that shocks the mind of a child cannot be a true system.  (Religion & Children)  Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

 

 

684.  Abstinence Makes The Church Grow Fondlers.  (Religion & Abstinence & Children & Abuse & Paedophile & Catholic)  T-shirts and Bumper Stickers

 

 

770.  Every time a child says, I don’t believe in fairies, there’s a little fairy somewhere that falls down dead.  (Belief & Disbelief & Children & Fairy)  J M Barrie, Peter Pan, 1928

 

 

777.  Epidemiology is also a ‘social construct’ with ‘societal causes’ etc. – but this doesn’t mean that the germ theory of disease isn’t true or that any rival ‘construct’ – like one suggesting that child rape will cure AIDS – isn’t a dangerous, deplorable, and unnecessary eruption of primeval stupidity.  We either have good reasons or bad reasons for what we believe; we can be open to evidence and argument, or we can be closed; we can tolerate (and even seek) criticism of our most cherished views, or we can hide behind authority, sanctity, and dogma.  The main reason why children are still raised to think that the universe is 6,000 years old is not because religion as a ‘social institution’ hasn’t been appropriately coddled and cajoled, but because polite people (and scientists terrified of losing their funding) haven’t laughed this belief off the face of the earth.  (Belief & Children & Reason)  Sam Harris
