Irreverence is a good thing, as illustrated by The Daily Mash:

Jesus died for our holidays

"The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species." - Christopher Hitchens

"Remember kids, if you don't sin, then Jesus died for nothing. Have a great day!" - Ricky Gervais

RE: Do atheists have a better sense of humor than theists?
Agree with the OP. The way I see it is that believers just seem to be more uptight and tightly wrapped than us skeptics. Although we do have passion about our views, we just don't take some parts of life too seriously. Also, I think the general act of having fun, or poking fun, does not feel good to a fundi believer - almost a guilt/sin thing maybe.

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

No. I find many atheists just like fundies take themselves far too seriously.

RE: Do atheists have a better sense of humor than theists?
Yes, I DO have a hightened sense for humor. Unfortunately, it just makes it more painfully obvious that none of you are even slightly funny.

I nearly blacked out on a few of those; absolute sensory assault from those so called "jokes"

RE: Do atheists have a better sense of humor than theists?
I've known some Christians who had an awesome sense of humor, even about their sacred cows. And some atheists with no sense of humor whatever. Given that this theory would have a huge observational bias, plus a confirmation bias in that the jokes one person tells will tend to work for her crowd but not the opposite crowd, how would we be able to quantify this?

Ok. Now I feel stupid for posting this thread. Watch, a bunch of you will post lame, dumb unfunny jokes.

Hummm. I donno, I'm thinkin' my original premise was perhaps correct. I'm finding all you nitwits funny simply because Spring has sprung and it's put me in a delightful mood. Anything is funny at this point in time. Big Grin No

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.

RE: Do atheists have a better sense of humor than theists?
I would agree with the OP. Atheists seem to lack some of the unnecessary seriousness that comes with being terrified of hell.

The essence of life is statistical improbability on a colossal scale.
