Seems repeaty.
 
2013-05-03 10:22:07 AM
Yep, heard this months ago.

But remember that atheists are the holier-than thou sanctimonious proselytizers who can't leave other people alone with their beliefs.  There is no way they face widespread discrimination in the U.S., because those ones on the internet are so annoying.  Yep, that's the ticket.

I'm agnostic to whether or not these soles exist.
 
2013-05-03 10:23:35 AM
I don't care what you call your shoes. Are they stylish? Are they comfortable? Are they relatively durable? Are they reasonably priced?

You could name them Dog Feces Attractors, if you can answer yes for those four questions above, I'm interested.

I am actually looking for some everyday shoes. My Cole Haans are wearing out and they don't seem to make this style anymore.

I've been wearing the same pair of Born boots for about 4 years now.   I love those shoes.

I got a pair of anarchist shoes but one wanted to kick in windows and the other one wanted to hold endless meetings to discuss more committee meetings and who was bringing hummus dip to all of them.

Shoes with "Darwin Loves" on the soles? Really?  Gah, that's farking annoying.

Is that name on the outside of the boxes they ship? I had my copy of Stark / Gridlock was opened by customs. (I ordered from a seller on Amazon and didn't realize they were in UK.) It took a month longer than it should've to get here and was slit open. I wonder if things with an "other than Christian" nature are given special treatment at the border?

If you'd enjoyed a century or more of preferential treatment to the point where it actually became "normal" for you to get it... Then started to see that evaporate and in your heart you know you never should have gotten it in the first place...

I wish the good Christians (and yes there are plenty of good ones), particularly the clergy, would shun those who subvert Jesus' teachings. They are the true enemies of the church... not atheists, mooslims, pornographers, etc.

The "good ones" already do.
Unfortunately, there are far from plenty of them.

Could be the writing.  You're sending a box with text all over it versus another box with no text through machines who are designed to read text.  No surprise it takes longer.  I think atheist shoes are suffering from confirmation bias a little bit.

Comments here are interesting.
 
2013-05-03 10:41:47 AM
Why does it have to be "God-fearing" Christians who are stealing shoes? Why can't it be some curious atheist postal workers who want a pair of these shoes for themselves?

For example, if you slap a big roll of marijuana leaf stickers on a box, who is more likely to be curious about what's inside, the straight edger or the stoner?

I wonder how it would have worked out if the cops have followed a set of bloody shoe prints stating "Darwin Loves" back to O J?

"I wouldn't wear any ugly ass shoes proclaiming "Darwin Loves". I'm all for the Jebus!"

maybe it's the work of people who can't stand attention seeking d-bags whose reason for existence is to proclaim they don't collect stamps?

Well you have to accept there are some downsides of living in a theocratic state.

hey, if you wear shoes which proclaim your faith (or lack thereof) you're a farking loser. Sorry, dunno what else to tell you. No one cares what you believe except those equally intent on sharing their own beliefs with you. The rest of us who go about our business without a care or concern about the beliefs of others nor a desire to share our own beliefs unsolicited will justifiably laugh at you.

Yep, you also think we should rob people who wear crucifixes around their neck.  I'm sure that there are a lot less of them than atheist shoes.  Because you're not a hateful asshole who wants to discriminate on a minority, it's that atheists are the outspoken and annoying ones.

You're not fundamentally uncomfortable with the lack of evidence for your own beliefs and lashing out at those who disagree.  They're the ones at fault.  For sure.

The straight edger.
The straight edger is probably stupid enough to think it actually contains illegal drugs.
The stoner knows it's just a bong or gear.

Ding - should have used neutral tape and tape that read "Jesus saves!" or something.  Compare the results for all three taped boxes to the same city at least.

Come on Subby, at least make an attempt at a Fark-like headline.  Like:

Not news: some of company's products are lost or delayed in importing and shipping.  News: company that is in-your-face about its religion alleges discrimination.  Fark: the company is called "Atheist".

that sucks and it's better than the bland submitted headline.

I can see that, but nobody is asking YOU to wear them, let alone asking you to pay for the right to wear them.

These particular athiests are wanting a lot of non-athiests to buy shoes that advertise athiesm.  Probably no worse, all considered, than wearing clothing with Tommy Hilfiger's name or Ralph Lauren's name all over it, but I won't do that either.
