I'm feeling a lot better and back at my sacrilegious iconoclasm—my blog.

Since joining A/N and learning more about history and science, the more militant I become. The U.S. is heading toward theocracy as voters become more and more disenchanted with the democrats and the president. Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee are licking their crops.

So let's start fighting back by following the example of Richard Dawkins et.al and put unflattering anti-religious slogans on billboards and the sides of buses. I'm sure the religious community will appreciate our wit and good intentions.

Here's a couple for starters:


JESUS WAS A ZOMBIE

MOHAMED WAS A CAMEL LOVER

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Timo, you're basically right. I know reason and education are the only things that will cause changes. But I'm the coiner of the endmeme, the belief that orthodox beliefs about the apocalypse are endangering all life on the planet.

Anything that works. If humanity doesn't reform it could undo four billion years of evolution.

I agree that we should go with less undeniably offensive ones like the camel and zombie examples. I also think that we have to be outspoken.

Earthling, once again we are on the same planet.

That's cool, Jo. We all see the world in different ways. But don't forget I'm the coiner of the endmeme. I'm convinced organized religion will destroy the world. I see it getting closer and closer every day.

I'm sure MOHAMED WAXED HIS ASS isn't going to accomplish much in public relations other them piss them off. But at least we're fighting back. We just can't sit and watch it happen.

There's a difference between militant and simply trading insults with the 'other side.' The point I assume is to get our message across effectively. Comedic insults, while funny to us, might do mare harm than good when posited as public service announcements.

I can call the bully on the playground a doo-doo-head all day long. It's true by my judgement, but it achieves nothing and certainly won't stop the bully. But if I show a higher level of maturity, A) I'm not providing ammo for his baseless accusations that I am as bad a name-caller as he is and B) one or two others on the playground might just see that he's the one being childish while I'm trying to be the grownup here.

I can see a bus riding through the Tehran city financial section with MOHAMED WAXED HIS ASS conspicuously exhibited on the side. I think the kids would start clapping and the old guard turn red.

Fun thought, but I wouldn't want to be the bus driver.

Mohammed waxed his ass.

One more point about the Bible. It also encourages dichotomous, black and white, good and evil thinking. This is bad for humanity as when W. Bush said that you're even with the U.S. or the terrorists. The world is still paying the price for this kind of shortsightedness.

The money spend on meaningless, useless, unwinnable war might have been used to alleviate human suffering.

5,000 gods and counting...

Mac, I like to ask these people unanswerable questions to see how they try to wriggle out out it.

Why did it take over four billion years for the planet to evolve consciousness?

Do you really believe Eve was created from Adam's rib? Isn't this a little far out? Why don't females have one less?

Why did Zombie Christ only appear to his disciples? He could have taken a limo into Jeruselem and gotten a big write-up in the papers. Then we wouldn't be arguing about this stuff two thousand years later.

There're so many fallacies and inconsistencies in the orthodoxy we could go on and on. How could the Bible be "the good book" when it advocates and condones slavery, war, sexism, male-dominated hierarchy, revenge, jealousy, animal sacrifice, and homophobia?

Mustn't forget violent retribution when morally offended, as when Christ started whipping the money changers in the temple.

My son Rickie and me pulled this stuff on a couple of Jehovah Witnesses that knocked on our door. We had some fun and the JWs even enjoyed the debate, but were a little disappointed that they couldn't save our souls.

Warm regards,
