Atheist Poem
Something I wrote and wanted to share:

“What you know isn’t so”

If science could prove what you know it isn’t so;
You still would believe, because “the good book” says so
Faith without evidence is a slippery slope;
For logic and reason require no hope

All ancients “gods”, from Poseidon to Thor;
Long since debunked, leaving only one more
Some still insist, with a wink and a nod;
If not yet explained, then it must have been "god”

They turn a blind eye when facts are presented;
Their storybook savior leaves them falsely contented
Religion has wrought so much death and destruction;
Children from birth, given “holy” instruction

To their bible they say one must always be true;
For the “lord” in the sky watches all that they do
Goodness and morals could never exist;
Without the commandments of their top 10 list

“Repent and believe and in heaven you’ll dwell;
But a life without god is your ticket to hell!”
Those words try to frighten and make you obey;
Just believe in yourself, and find your own way

— Terry Peterson

RE: Atheist Poem
Nice to meet you Terry, great poem Smile

Here's my own little poem:

"Your five minutes is up.

Any explanation yet?

No?

It's a miracle!"

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Not to be nitpicky, but don't you mean "commandments"? Welcome Smile

Oh! I thought it was a deliberate play on words... an allusion to the priestly class.

Commandant
noun
plural noun: commandants
an officer in charge of a particular force or institution.

"... commandants of their top 10 list" reminded me of that scene in Raiders of the Lost Arc with the Germans and the melty faces.

Unsure

RE: Atheist Poem
Ooh, poetry! Can I play, too?

An atheist man from Nantucket
Said, "religion's bullshit a bucket"
It makes you no friends,
As it's odor offends;
It's about time, I think, you said "fuck it".
