Atheism Poster

I hope that atheists around here can take a good-natured joke, eh?

I know that people tend to be awfully earnest about such things, so please see the tag “Humor.” Actually, I’ll put two tags saying “Humor” for the especially prickly folks.

  1. Here’s a similar poster about Christianity:

    Of course, it doesn’t accurately represent what Christianity is, but neither does the atheism poster. I don’t think either of them would be as funny if they were fair. =P

    1. This poster makes no sense because the Jewish God never suggested communion. This could have been very funny if it weren’t so shoddy.

      Maybe people can find inconsistencies in the atheist poster? I can’t because I’m not an atheist.

        Not the Yahweh jewish God, but certainly the Jesus jewish God according to the Bible:

        He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me, and I in him. John 6:56

        1. You do not accept Jesus as your master, though. That’s what the trinity is for. Jesus serves the Father and the Holy Spirit, right? I was always confused on that part.

      2. There is only one God, even though they are three. Isn’t that perfectly clear? πŸ™‚

        Which one of the three you identify with is a personal preference. From personal observations Catholics tend to pray more to the Father, Holy Ghost or any one of the saints or virgings rather than to Jesus, while Protestants, particularly in North America, tend to talk more to and about Jesus than anything else.

    2. Plus, I mean, you’re not *symbolically* eating the flesh of zombie-Jesus, you are *literally* eating the flesh of zombie-Jesus, because the bread has been magically turned into it by the priest.
      At least in Catholicism.

      1. Well, as my students say whenever we discuss atrocities perpetuated by religious people, “Those were Catholics!” Meaning that they, the Protestants, are SO much better. πŸ™‚

    3. Totally true, because a magical being that all ways was, one ___ (days weren’t named) _______(no decided either) to _____(no make, i think you get the point) a planet and a solar system and a galaxy, just ‘cos? He made humans in, what was it, 6 days? I though pregnancy took 9 months. But i digress, he first made man then made a women from one of his ribs to be his companion. if it wasn’t the creation of the world it sure was the creation of sexism. And this god didn’t like us and he regretted making us, but he didn’t do anything about it. Virgin Mary gave birth to baby Jesus. Hmmm. Science, you know that thing that proves that dinosaurs exist and that the universe was created by the Big Bang, shows that’s impossible. And, the best part, has evidence. There is no EVIDENCE God is real. Your views are, well it can’t be anything else. But there is no evidence.

  2. //I always thought that people who insist they get the trinity are faking it.

    Isn’t Holy Spirit connected to Jewish concept of “Shekhinah”? From wiki:

    Accordingly, in classic Jewish thought, the Shekhinah refers to a dwelling or settling in a special sense, a dwelling or settling of divine presence, to the effect that, while in proximity to the Shekhinah, the connection to God is more readily perceivable.

    The Shekinah is held by some to represent the feminine attributes of the presence of God (shekhinah being a feminine word in Hebrew), based especially on readings of the Talmud.

      – No, there is nothing feminine about the Trinity. There is Virgin Mary for that. Judaism sounds more enlightened than Christianity in your quote.

  3. Of course the Christain Trinity is just an attempt to marginalize females. The original trinity was the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone, the three aspects of the Triple Goddess. There are many cultural manifestations of these, but think Persephone, Demeter, and Hecate.

    1. As to the atheist poster, I think one of the most profound discoveries of the last several decades is that the universe can, indeed, be mathematically explained as simply a random fluctuation from absolute nothingness.

      1. Well, this is all a little above my pay grade (I may be in astrophysics, but cosmology is not my specialty), but I thought there has to be something like a field or a string that has states it can oscillate between, though its average state is zero/nothingness. Then again, is a string or field a “thing” or just a mathematical description of the nature of the nothingness… *shrugs* all a little too philosophical for my tastes πŸ˜‰

      I thought that was the goal of the entire line of Abrahamic religions. A key component of a monotheistic religions is that there is no room for a female good, be it Isis, Hera, Ishtar, Astarte, Aphrodite/Venus, Tonantzin, Frigg, or Yemaja.

      1. “I thought that was the goal of the entire line of Abrahamic religions”

        Here we go again. “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” You can’t marginalize females within a religion (not a Church, mind you, a religion) where males and females do not exist.

        “A key component of a monotheistic religions is that there is no room for a female”

        – In Christianity, there is no room for gender, period. The perversions of weird Popes are their own private invention.

        “But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.” (Leviticus 12:5)

        “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” (I Corinthians 11:3)

        “For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.” (I Corinthians 11:8-9)

        “Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.” (Revelation 2:22-23)

        “Let the women learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” (I Timothy 2:11-14)

        “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.” (Ephesians 5:22-24)

        “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.” (I Corinthians 14:34-35)

        …you get the picture.

      3. Now you are using a non-standard definition of Christianity. In the standard definition it includes belief in the whole Bible, not just the gospels.

        Abrahamic religions as practiced through the ages have had a decidedly anti-feminist slant.

  4. Ironically, your poster’s description better describes creationism than atheism.

    Since atheism has zero beliefs to ridicule, attempts like this to turn the Christianity poster’s rhetorical approach back on atheism cannot help but fail.
