Inhalien: Sigh. Just another atheism thread with all the children patting each other on their back.

Clemkadidlefark: I suggest you move to Saudi Arabia and pen articles about Mohammed as a devil channeling Persian. See what that gets you.


It's good to see a Christian Dominionist actually admitting that Saudi Arabia is the template they're working from for organizing their theocracy.

Jumpin Jbot: And I'm sure that when Islam becomes the largest religion in the world, which it will due to birthrates and rising rejection of Christianity, the anti-theists will be as bold in their snark and not at all afraid of being called intolerant or getting a brick to the face.

 When we come out of hiding after you guys are done with your holy wars, we'll probably be just as mean.

MyKingdomForYourHorse: Come to think of it, the bible is a lot like comics. Well at least DC comics. Both have plot and story arcs that lead nowhere with holes you could drive a truck through that often make no sense.


...and no one reads them, either.

American Bible Challenge (a game show), Hystyry has basically become then Jesus and Aliens channel when they're not airing reality shows, and there are actually examples in TFA.

I am waiting for a reboot and a modern spin with the whole Christ story. Joe can still be a carpenter, but working on a building sites in the PJs of Trenton. Mary can be the virgin and how they find out about the conception is on Maury. The wise men could be three of Joe's homies from around the block.

It nearly writes itself.
