Fun Poster

This poster is awesome. Okay, yeah, Lincoln, Jefferson, and Franklin probably were not thorough atheists, but they certainly had the fortitude to reject religious claims based on their own reasoned analysis. Darwin probably wouldn’t classify as a thorough atheist either, but he recognized the value of skepticism, too.

Good enough for these idiots.

The lesson to take is that you don’t have to fall lock-step into any religious tradition to be a great person or do great things. Exercise your own mind and never underestimate your own ability to see through the lies of others, even when they tell them forcefully, with great conviction. And watch out, because you might be lying to yourself, too.

The State giveth and the State taketh away. Blessed be the State!

Jeremy Hall, a soldier with no religious beliefs is suing the Department of Defense for discrimination based on his irreligion. He said “there is a pattern of discrimination against non-Christians in the military.”

How to De-Convert Yourself from Christianity

NOTA BENE: The purpose of syndicating this pro-atheism post is to solicit civil and intelligent rebuttals from the capable apologists in my readership. Peter is a pretty reasonable guy and will response politely if addressed politely. I encourage folks to make the case for Christ in a manner consistent with His teachings. – Funky
