So, I'm thinking the OP is a Poe-by-proxy, and unworthy of serious reply.

I guess that is the distinction.

They might be bullshit artists, too.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

RE: Why are non-believers so afraid of blasphemy?
I have this friend see... And he's a theist but I'm not. Anyway he asks me this question that left me thinking...(fill in the blank)



I think muffs called it first.

“I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man’s reasoning powers are not above the monkey’s.”~Mark Twain
“Ocean: A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man - who has no gills.”~ Ambrose Bierce

Wait, so you spend your spare time altering picture bibles? Consider I'm 50/50 on the troll thing... Just because I hate to assume.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

RE: Why are non-believers so afraid of blasphemy?
Generally I have not found this to be the case, but occasionally I have. I've known people who don't believe in God, but still refuse to insult anything about God/Jesus and don't like me doing so.

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

RE: Why are non-believers so afraid of blasphemy?
Sometimes it seems to me like they've just been conditioned all their lives with the idea that religion must be respected. Sometimes it seems more like they understand that it deserves ridicule but just don't want to rock the boat.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

My friend is not a believer, but he was really uncomfortable when I showed him the changes I made to a cartoon bible.
I think if I were 13/14 again, I'd probably think it was a hoot.
At 40+ I'd think my old friend is a bit crazy or has some "issues" to get value out of making modifications to a bible.

It would be somewhat like a person who doesn't believe in middle earth, has no interest in Tolkein, knowing I have little interest in the books, bringing out a copy of LOTR and showing me the modifications he has made to the pictures in the book.

I'd be like, "Umm, yeah, whatever, maybe we should watch TV or something?"

Wait, so gods a guy with a cunt? I had no idea. Consider

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.

Agreed.

Also, I've never encountered an atheist who was angry at god. Consider
