Nope.  No trolling there.  None whatsoever.

As Christians find joy in "the sacrifice of the figure of Christ Jesus," Moore adds, "your Humanist siblings are likewise jubilant at the death of God, and we embrace the necessity of sacrifice from one for each other, in the interest of advancing a human-centered ethic that benefits us all."

Now that's how you troll.

That one's pretty dickish.

Last year's "Our Families Are Great Without Religion" was a good one; it was a positive message about atheist families.  This is just assholiness and trying to piss off the god botherers.

Rule number one of atheist advertising should be "don't be an asshole."

This makes no sense.  Why would atheists say that something that never existed is dead?

As far as I'm concerned, that's rule number one of life.

True.  It's particularly important for despised minority groups who are trying to gain social acceptance, of course.

That will surely convince every Christian they are wrong.

Seems like a silly waste of time, energy and money.

Should have used it to feed some hungry people or something.

Well, hell, as long as it makes this group of atheists feel good about themselves while they pat each other on the back for a job well done, nothing else really matters.

This. I was expecting something funny, though the use of the pastel colors was the only thing they got right.

There's something I never thought I would type.

Stuff like this is why I stay out of the atheism, tipping, tattoo, and Facebook threads.

I bet I know what the other topic of Sundays service will be.

Yeah, absolutely.  This is really dumb.  Also, to be dead, one has to have first existed, right?  Therefore, they are professing their belief in God now.

Either that or they're referencing Nietzsche, whose declaration that God is dead is meant metaphorically.
 
2013-03-30 04:14:19 PM
Trolling?  Check?

Douchebaggery? Double check.

Saying "God is dead" would imply he was once alive, therefore existed.

These chaps may want to re-tool their message.

Yup. It should be positive messaging about how lack of religious belief doesn't make you in any way defective. It shouldn't be about denigrating other people's beliefs.

The average "bible-thumper" south of the Mason-Dixon line has no idea who Friedrich Nietzsche was. These Atheists certainly fail at marketing, IMHO.

This group sounds like a bunch of jackbags that are no better than the fundamentalist Christians they despise.

Now, the "our families are great without religion" one is good. You can advocate your morals and ideas outside of religion without throwing stones at the Christians to piss them off.

I think if you go so far as to try to read between the lines, they meant the "idea" of god is dead. which is partially true. christians are fighting a war to keep the religion alive anyway.

Good Friday commemorates the day Jesus died on the cross. So, before he came back to life, danced around and went to heaven, god (or at least, one third of him) was dead. It makes as much sense as the rest of it.

Yeah but if you have half the planet worshiping what they call a "God" it ain't dead.

God Is Superstitious Bullshiat would have been a lot more accurate.

I wonder if they have considered what precisely Nietzsche meant by the phrase "God is dead"? Or care about the statement's context?

From what I gather of his work, he pretty much trolled the reader. Long before the Internets.

I'm as atheist as they come but I don't see the point of creating and mailing a Nietzsche quote on Easter to Christians.  First its confusing, because they could interpret it literally, and second the metaphorical meaning about how we've ousted religion, divinity and miracles from our collective consciousness is obviously FALSE when you're mailing it to a group of people who sincerely believe in a god.

I'm thankful I live here in the godless SF bay area where the constant war between the godless and godful doesn't exist.

Our god is obliviously Steve Jobs.

I also liked the cunning conflation of "Jesus is dead" with "God is dead" - basic Fox tactic to trick the stupid

Atheists are so mad, that people practice religion, that they formed a 501c corporation?

And instead of fighting to keep religious paraphenalia off of government property and buildings they just go around mocking people who believe in practicing religion?

They sure are starting to sound like a religion themselves....I mean are they trying to convert people to atheism through shaming because that's what it sounds like they are trying to do.....

Because, for these people, atheism is a religion; therefore, atheism is a religion.
