RE: Favorite Atheist Misconception?
Today I got, "Why are you so angry at our beliefs?" Who said I was angry when I carefully explained to you that a bible in someone's shirt pocket that stopped a bullet isn't a miracle? Silly theists.

RE: Favorite Atheist Misconception?
My favorite misconception?

That we all eat babies.


I mean, seriously, this is just stupid. Babies are way too much work for the payoff. There's very little meat, most of it is too fatty, and if you don't get them before they start crawling, the meat starts to get stringy and tough.



The one that makes me facepalm the most?

"Why are you angry at God?"

I like to respond to this one with "Why are you angry at Papa Smurf?"

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

We deny God because we want to have sex, eat bacon and kill people.

We are lost and need Jesus to show us the way.

We are just teens who need anger management.

You might be doing it wrong, try this recipe but switch out the pork for the infant, I think you'll find that the meat comes right off the bone Drooling

Remember to marinate the meat in mojo overnight! Let me know how it comes out.

That being atheists means you think you know all the answers.

RE: Favorite Atheist Misconception?
The morality stuff definitely ticks me off. Dawkin's chapter on morality in The God Delusion was really good. He articulated what I had been feeling for a long while. I had a friends mom who told me that science may give us the how, but religion gives us the why...and morality. At the time, I wasn't quite sure how to respond. Now being a bit more well read, I wish I could go back in time and answer her.

The religion of one age, is the literary entertainment of the next.

Thanks! I'll be the life of all the devil worshipping, virgin sacrifice parties I attend!

Say, you wouldn't happen to have a good recipe for Puppy Jerky or Kitten Legs, would you?

This one scene scared the bajeezus out of me when I was a kid...had to have the nightlight on for weeks. Thanks for bringing back those terrible memories! That being said...pretty accurate reference.

That I was never a "real christian".

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
