"Let the backpedaling begin! I recently saw this post on YouTube:
An unrepentant Harold Camping took to the airwaves Monday night reasserting his beliefs in the end of the world and gave yet another prediction for the end of the world. The…"

I think that believing in any diety is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. I was raised atheist, so I have no concept of having "faith" in a god, and think the concept in itself is asinine. I see no difference between all the major religions and your garden variety cult. I think the larger ones are far more dangerous due to their high numbers. I believe that organized religion is ridiculous, and that the ridiculous is worthy of ridicule. I think that making any child adopt any religion is pretty much mental abuse. A child who cannot even understand the concept of god or gods and is then told they are damned to hell just for being born unless they give themselves to an imaginary man makes me want to puke. But I digest. I like to promote positive atheism, and the separation of church and state. I think it's very important for all atheists to realize we have a duty and responsibility to promote positive atheism, and to try to be patient with the faithfull, because they are all living in a dream world. One which they do not want to wake up.
Nevertheless, I grow weary of believers. I try to be as patient a person that I can be, but it seems as though religion is being forced down my throat at every turn. I often day dream about what it would be like if everyone were atheists, and we as mankind could concentrate our efforts on larger scale problems in the world, instead of killing and fighting over whose invisible friend is better. The thought of the entire world being Christian or some other religion gives me the chills.
Because this site doesn't tell me when people comment on pictures, I just saw your comment on my "dog-butt Jesus" pic (from about September!)... anyway, I looked up the origins of said pic, and to my surprise, there are quite a few articles claiming this to be a "bona-fide miracle"... I can't find the link to the one I read long ago that was so earnest, but here are a couple of links that may amuse:
