As of 21st October a funding drive on justgiving.com has raised over 48K Pounds Sterling (Sorry, no pound sign on this $hitty keyboard) to run an ad campaign in January 2009 on London’s Bendy Buses with a simple, yet effective, message seen all too rarely:
Despite an article in August in the Daily Telegraph claiming athesist didn’t reach their goal, within a few hours of the Campaign opening, the heathen unbelievers had raised enough moolah to piss of Stephen Green and Christian Voice forever. LOL.
Amongst the noted contributors were TV’s Charlie Brooker, a certain “Steve G” (we presume NOT Stephen Green?), Mars Attacks (the movie? Cruel parents perhaps?) and one Russell’s Teapot, along wioth the comment “I watch you and all of your deeds from space.”
This last one was hailed by critics of Atheism as “a real result”, thus proving the existence of the small teapot in outer space, and therefore the refutation of the notion that the burden of proof of the non-existence of God lies with the person NOT believing it, rather than the person asserting it.
The invisible pink unicorn was not available for comment.
The Archbishop of Canterbury popped up in his halloween hat today and said the nativity and virgin birth of Jesus was a ‘legend’. Something people in the sane world has been saying since they were born.
The irony is laughable of course.
For centuries people are told that in order to be a good Christian, Muslim etc you need to believe all the associated dogma of talking snakes, pillars of salt, the first five books of the book we believe in is the same as the first five books those guys believe in but after that it changes and we are right and they are going to hell…
Then, with all the arrogrance of a loan shark who tells you ‘hey I said pay all of it back but actually forget the last thousand’, religious figues (ie: people who hold positions in the church but at the end of the day are just people) pop out and tell you that certain bits of the stuff you were coerced into believing don’t matter anymore?
The Pope did it a few years ago with the ‘idea’ of limbo (that’s all it is – an idea dreamed up by people who keep you in line through obedience and guilt)
Never mind your personal beliefs, no system of beliefs simply changes for no reason other than either whim (the latest revivion) or incredibility (no-one actually believes in limbo anymore because it’s STUPID, so the church simply shrugs and says ‘OK you got us – but you still have to believe all the other stuff tiol we revise that. GET IN LINE AND EAT SOME BREAD THAT ACTUALLY TURNS INTO THE FLESH OF JESUS.’
A lot of relious monotheists contend that Science is not a stabvle belief system because we were wrong about certain things, and theories get revised etc etc.
Well, let’s hope they spot the irony. That whilst science lets itself be revised due to evidence, religion lets itself be revised because some old dude told you so.
What would you pick, if you were given the choice?
