Invitation postcards from churches
These things annoy the hell out of me. I live in an apartment, and I got one with my apartment number on it. I wrote them a snarky email. Others are just to 'recipient.'
Am I overreacting?
I got another one the other day, and I'm thinking of sending another email. It makes me feel better.
What do you think?
Thanks.

Tell them that you worship the Lithuanian forest goddess, Medeina, and she's very angry at them for wasting paper.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

When I first read this thread title, I read it as Invasion postcards from churches.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Same thing.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
- Paul Dirac

Show up at their event! Be sure to wear attire that clearly identifies your atheism and come prepared with some fun conversation starters. Perhaps some handouts or other literature would be appropriate. Then remind them that they invited you. Big Grin

Great idea. Unfortunately, I'm not that gutsy, nor do I have the emotional energy, and I hate the phoniness of the whole business. I'll write them an email and ask them why they have to use lures like a bouncy castle (using the kids to get to the parents) and free food to lure people, and why does god need these things anyway?. It's manipulation.

Yeah, if the message is so great, it should stand on its own merits, and shouldn't require peer pressure, guilt tripping, threats of torture or ostracization, mindless repetitive rituals, and weekly brain-reconditioning by an authority figure in order for it to make sense to you.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Church's are communities that do things together. The other day I was out on a drive and went past some church, they had booths and bouncy castles. I thought to myself. How nice it is all those people and their families can have a good time together. Atheists should try it some time.

As for your post card.....I use those things as dust pans. I can never find a dust pan when I need one.
