it is illegal to deface u.s. currency, but fun..

Easiest is pen through "g-d", according to some. It is embarrassing to see that religion-endorsing slogan printed on our modern currency.

why would the Christan's want to put their g$ds name on the root of all evil..........

I don't know about cutting, but I know someone who routinely blacks out the phrase with a marker. This is not illegal as long as the serial number and dollar amount are not obscured, and no apparent attempt has been made to alter the value (putting a few zeroes after the number, for example). I sometimes do this too and have never had a problem. Most people don't notice.

This guy did something kinda cool.
Ramen to you :)
But, I'm pretty sure, no matter what you do to it, money can still be used as long as it still looks whole. Vending machines will still take it, why shouldn't the cashier?

Most countries do not so blatently add "In god We Trust" to either paper currency or coins.

People from other countries have had negative comments, and rightly so.
"In god We Trust" brought to you by country of "The Christians"

Actually this is fairly new (1955) for coins.
It actually detracts from the design of any coin with such limited space.

One more and I'll quit... I think it odd that the more militiant US Christians find it necessary to "trust" in God by trusting in "Mammon" and fortifying their life with "the things that are Ceasars", which their Christ is beheld to decry. Furthermore, the whole "In God We Trust" was born of Civil War strife, when the "Christian Nation's" conscience finally got the best of them regarding slavery and it had to be settled with widespread slaughter of the Nation's finest. Had the Godfearing Nation been more humane from the outset...there would have been no slavery, nor bloodshed.

Hell, just use plastic. Hard-core Christians see such technology as fore-runners to "the Mark"!

I like marking out god.They take it any way.

I personally like replacing god with the word Us, ( In Us We Trust) But some people think it then says "in US we trust" as in USA USA USA USA USA. Not much gain there.
EvolveFISH sells a self inking rubber that that says Atheist Money. Others that say Humanist Money, or worst of all GAY MONEY.

The results looks a little nicer than a blank marker. I have asked several federal agents ( FBI & Secret Service ) about this. One agent told me as long as you don't try to obscure the dollar amount of the bill ( add zero to make a 10 and 100) it is legal. The other 2 agents I asked just rolled their eyes and told me to leave them alone.
After an atheist convention one year, I took 5 inch stack of ones and fives to my bank to deposit. Every last one of them had been stamped by me during the convention. The bank teller told me she wouldn't accept them. I asked for the manager. He came out and said they were required to honor them, but they would declare them damaged and send them to be destroyed. I took the stack with me and paid for everything I bought with it for several weeks.
That bank tell made some religious sign with her hands everytime she say me for months.
