What the kids are posting

October 12, 2011


Ooooooo … don’t those atheist kids at reddit piss you off?

Here are more of their shenanigans.

Can you believe it?

Picture of a black man with a cane wearing a t-shirt that reads, “I’m an atheist. Debate me.” He walks away, and the back reads, “Thanks for trying, better luck next time.” 

Stamp on dollar bill reads, “Federal endorsement of a deity or religion violates the US constitution. 

 

 

Bumper sticker reads: I’ve got nothing against god. It’s his fan club I can’t stand. 

Teacher: “Can you see god?” Student: “No.” Teacher: “Then there is no god.” Student: “can you see your brain?” Teacher: “No.” Student: “then you have no brain.” Response: Are you an idiot?

July 26, 2011

The video above tries to show how “atheists,” aka admitted  non-believers, are hated in this country.

Hated.

“Hello,” we say in a unified voice.

“My name is Jeremy Witteveen … and I … am … an atheist ….”

(Ominous thunder clap)

(Drum beats on the horizon!)

Bum bum bum!

Evangelicals, evolution and atheism: the 2011 Pew Foundation survey (via Why Evolution Is True)

June 30, 2011

My time is limited, but I wanted to repost this blog post from our favorite religious blogger Julie Ferwerda.

It’s called, “Healing the Contradictions with Humility.” I think it’s a well-thought-out post. The fact is, there are contradictions in the bible, and ignoring them is something that non-believers poke sticks at and amuse ourselves because believers act like they aren’t there.

Go read it!
