High-brow: Sola scientia or sola intellectus

Low-brow: Gods? Gods? We don't need no stinkin' gods!

Doesn't require science to lack belief in a deity or deities

3. Atheist hymn:
(Words to be determined by consensus)

O, humanity!
Blah, blah, blah, blah!
Something, something, something, sooooome-thing,
Tom-tiddly om-pom-pom!

Being the herd of cats that we are, could be sung to any tune and tempo.

Wouldn't something about humanity be more a humanist hymn if we're talking about humanity and upholding humanist/secular values?

But we can add cats.

Quote:4. Atheist oath:

I pledge allegiance to reason and to the progress it fosters.
One paradigm to govern our behavior
With liberty and justice for all.

I put "paradigm" in there to make it sound trendy.

Wouldn't this be an oath to logic and critical thinking? Wink

So I discovered the perfect anthem for the Moslem suicide cults. It goes like this:

"Take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green and the girls are pretty
Take me home (oh won't you please take me home)"

Repeat with increasing tempo till incinerated.

Atheism doesn't need anthems, flags, mottos or any of that rubbish. It's too reminiscent of religion and all their nonsense. Ick!

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Being serious - no need for hymn, motto or flag.

Being less serious - atheist are called communists already so why not use this?


The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
