Dying words of famous atheists original content: http://www.thefreepressonline.co.uk/n... Famous atheists' last words before dying. Voltaire: 'I am abandoned by God and man...I shall go to hell.' Thomas Paine: 'I would give worlds, if I had them, that the "Age of Reason" had never been published. Oh, God, save me; for I am at the edge of hell alone...' Thomas Carlyle: I am as good as without hope, a sad old man gazing into the final chasm.' Gandhi 15 years before his death: 'I must tell you in all humility that Hinduism, as I know it...entirely satisfies my soul, fills my whole being and I find solace in the Bhagavad and the Upanishads.' Shortly before his death he wrote: 'My days are numbered, I am not likely to live much longer, perhaps a year or more...For the first time in 50 years I find myself in the slough of despond...All about me is darkness; I am praying for light.' Sir Thomas Scott, Chancellor of England: 'Until this moment, I thought there was neither God nor Hell...Now I know and feel that there are both, and I am doomed to perdition by the just judgment of the Almighty...' Edward Gibbon, author: 'All is dark and doubtful.' Mazarin, French cardinal: 'Oh, my poor soul! What will become of thee? Whither wilt thou go?' Thomas Hobbes, political philosopher and skeptic: 'I am about to take a fearful leap into the dark.' Sir Francis Newport, skeptic: 'I know I am lost forever! Oh, that fire! Oh, the insufferable pangs of hell!'
