I came to know who Tracie Harris is by watching her frequent appearances as one of the co-hosts on the excellent Austin-based TV show The Atheist Experience, and more recently listening to her on the also great Godless Bitches podcast.

Just now I stumbled across the comic strip above, which I immediately wanted to re-post here. Wanting to properly credit it, I tracked it back to its source, and it was really cool to discover Tracie is the author, and that there is a whole collection of her work at the Atheist Community of Austin site. If you liked this one, go check out the rest of her stuff!

In this short but excellent video, youtuber DarkMatter2525 highlights the absurdity of the “if God revealed himself to us it would violate our free will” claim.

 

I’m no artist, but when I saw this tweet by David Silverman, President of American Atheists (click the link to see the picture he posted), I was inspired:

Atheists don’t Tebow, we Thinker. http://pic.twitter.com/W2yjJYgb

Needless to say, I put my immaculate MS Paint skills to work, and did up this rough, simple, but hopefully to-the-point picture. I hope you like it:

The “he” is always lower case…”

George Carlin: Religion is bullshit

One for the ages:

 

Harold Camping, made famous by his highly publicized campaign to prepare everyone for a rapture that never happened on May 21, 2011, has a lesser known doomsday prediction for… today! Yes, it’s October 21st (although the clock is rapidly ticking down), and once again the end of the world… well of course, it won’t fucking happen.

Here’s The Rational Warrior, aka Tombstone Da Deadman (check out his music and videos here and here), with some good advice for the rapture, as well as some other observations on religion and the Republican primaries:

 

When it comes to comparing atheists to the likes of Pol Pot, Mao Tse-Tung and Joseph Stalin, Bill O’Reilly  just can’t help himself, even in an interview about a children’s science book.

And when it comes to science, he apparently just can’t learn a damn thing at all:

Now the last time you were here you were honest enough to admit that you don’t know the origin, whether it was a meteor, or something like that. And you said to me, “We’re working on it”, and I said to you, “Let me know.”

Richard Dawkins responded much too politely by saying, “That was only about two years ago”, cutting himself off there instead of continuing on to the natural conclusion of that sentence. What I wish he had said:

“That was only two years ago, you imbecilic fucking creatard who can’t grasp even the simplest scientific concepts such as how the gravitational pull of the moon causes the tides. A meteor? Really? Two years? Really?!? “

Anyhow, here’s the video:

Breaking down some of O’Reilly’s utterances:

“…atheist Richard Dawkins”

How about showing the basic journalistic integrity of calling him biologist Richard Dawkins? Oh, that’s right. Because you don’t have a sliver of integrity in your tiny, angry little mind.

“He’s on a crusade to convince believers they’re idiots.”

No, idiot, he’s appealing to people’s reason based on science and rationality, in order to get them to see that some of their beliefs are unfounded, not that they as individuals are idiots.

“…you were honest enough to admit”

As if it should be assumed automatically that atheists are usually dishonest.

“A-HA!!!”

Colbert would be proud.

“The Judeo-Christian philosophy isn’t a myth, it’s reality.”

Even a solid majority of biblical scholars and theologians wouldn’t agree with this statement. So thank you for demonstrating that you know as little about your own religion as you do about science.

What would Jesus do? Punch your fat face in.

 

As always, Father Guido Sarducci brings his unique perspective to understanding Christianity:

…And he was so mad, he threw down the tablets and broke ’em. Then what he did was, he tried to remember ’em, make ’em up again. And Moses, you know, was old man, he was in his 90s. He was a-grumpy. He had a chip on his shoulder cause of this… the cow incident. And all he remembered was the negative ones. Don’t do this, don’t do that. Thou shalt not this, thou shalt not that.

But a lot of the commandments he forgot were more like advice. They were nice things, you know like, for instance, the 11th Commandment: Wait half hour after eating before you go swimming…

But it’s just not as funny when you read it. Go listen to the whole thing here. It’s a youtube with a blank screen.
