South Park is sometimes just plain right!

This was posted on the Richard Dawkins Forum

Stan: Why would God let Kenny die, Chef? Why? Kenny's my Friend. Why can't God take someone else's friend?
Chef: Stan, sometime God take those closest to us, because it makes him feel better about Himself. He's a very vengeful God, Stan. He's all pissed off about something we did thousands of years ago. He just can't get over it. So he doesn't care who he takes: children, puppies, it don't matter to him, so long as it makes us sad. Do you understand?
Stan: Then why does God give us anything to start with?
Chef: Well, look at it this way: if you want to make a baby cry, first you give it a lollipop. Then, you take it away. If you never give it a lollipop to begin with, then you would have nothing to cry about. That's like God, who gives us life and love and health just so that he can tear it all away and make us cry, so he can drink the sweet milk of our tears...You see, it's our tears, Stan, that give God his great power.
Stan: I think I understand.

Personal whims?

"She cannot simply at her own whims enter or leave her religion," Judge Ahmad Fairuz said. "She must follow rules."

This is not about the religions involved, though I'm sure it would be a lot worse for her if she decided to become atheist.
It is about the separation of church (religion) and state.  The religious affiliation is printed on their passport, I wonder if it is dependent on the religion of the parent.
Those things should be eradicated but I'm sure that if she's allowed to change and people in general are allowed to change that people will think that it is OK, wrong, so wrong.

Daily thoughts

The Belgian state is sponsoring a god radio, I left some comments introducing Dawkins and Hitchens, I hope I can reach some poor indoctrinated kid.
A little thought popped in my head during my morning commute, the religious are always saying that it should always be mentioned that evolution is just a theory, well their own god hypothesis is only a theory and it is even one that does not have any evidence at all.  I suggest they always say "my god theory" or "my religious theory"
It's probably something that has already been said by others, it just poped in my head.

That seems like a fair representation.

Okay, just one little post (well there might be more of these ...)

You scored as Scientific Atheist, These guys rule. I'm not one of them myself, although I play one online. They know the rules of debate, the Laws of Thermodynamics, and can explain evolution in fifty words or less. More concerned with how things ARE than how they should be, these are the people who will bring us into the future.

Scientific Atheist


Apathetic Atheist


Angry Atheist


Spiritual Atheist


Militant Atheist






What kind of atheist are you?
