True Or False
When you learned in school that donkey's and snakes are anatomically incapable of vocalization, did it cause you to question the Bible's assertion that they are? When you learned about the millions of animal species on Earth and their often incompatable environmental needs, did it cause you to critically scrutinize the physical impossibility of the Noah's Ark story? So why do you fear that the thousands of hours you spend over your childs lifetime talking faith, under threat of torture in hell,
"As a species we're fundamentally insane. Put more than two of us in a room, we pick sides and start dreaming up reasons to kill one another. Why do you think we invented politics and religion?" - Stephen King "The Mist"
"What baffles me is the comfort people find in the idea that somebody dealt this mess. Blind and meaningless chance seems to me so much more congenial - or at least less horrible. Prove to me that there is a God and I will really begin to despair." ~Peter De Vries
Leaving the previous pinner's comment because it is so appropriate: No matter how many times I read this is still amazes me how many years I believed this craziness. If I can grow up anyone can.
No historical evidence of jesus. Not surprising.
Because science is fact, you can independently discover the same ideas on opposite ends of the Earth. Because religion is myth, a million monkeys couldn't come up with that shit twice.
Being an Atheist is not guarantee of a morality. The same thing goes for believers of all stripes. I prefer facts rather than a generalized mud tossing fest. My beef is not with believers so much as it is with the lack of accountability religions take for the outcomes. Wars - greed - environmental degradation are good examples.
yup yup yup
I'm sorry to take a sledgehammer to so small and fragile a nut.
Ask a fundamentalist (or any Christian for that matter) "Would you kill me if God told you to?"♥

"Religious apologists complain bitterly that atheists and secularists are too aggressive and hostile in their criticism of them. I always say: look, when you guys were in charge, you didn't argue with us, you just burnt us at the stake. Now what we're doing is, we're presenting you with some arguments and some challenging questions, and you complain." - A.C. Grayling
Why are atheists so mean?
This belief is the CORE reason why Christians are fighting these 2 issues. This pin makes that belief a glaring mistake...and I totally love it. I'm a lifelong christian who believes that abortion choices of others is none of my business, and the gay community are being denied their civil right to marry.
man of God / christian leader....think about it
