Twitter trending backfires on Christians

Apparently many Christians on Twitter were repeating the saying “No God, No Peace; Know God, Know Peace.” They were retweeting it to try to spread the word. Well, it became the top trending topic, but kind of backfired on them…
Yes, Twitter’s algorithm made “No God” and “Know Peace” trending topics, much to Christians’ chagrin. Whoopsie! Then I had to go start instigating things

Let’s hijack the trending topic, shall we? There is probably No God, so get over it and enjoy your lives #atheism

And promoting my fellow instigators

Know god, no peace; No god, know peace. #atheism

But if you want a really good laugh, go take a look at the “No God” thread. It’s mostly Christians freaking out that “No God” became a trending topic, even though it was their own fault. It’s quite amusing!

Feel free to join in in the tweeting!

    LOL. I'm enjoying this way too much. It's funny seeing how many Christians are complaining about it, thus keep it afloat as a Trending Topic.

    The majority of tweets are Christians complaining about "no god" trending. Second most is non-believers telling them it's trending because they keep using "no god" in their tweets complaining about it. And it still hasn't had any effect.

    The sad thing is, it won't trend forever, so when something finally takes the first spot the Christians will crow about how they defeated "no god". Which will probably make "no god" trend #1 again.

    To their credit, you never if/what will end up as a trending topic. But this is just so fun. My favorite reply so far: "@chitope There's probably No God. Now stop worrying with the TT and enjoy your life" http://twitter.com/edcrypt/status/5021165426

    I had to stop reading. The huge amount of Pascal's Wager there was just bloody painful.

    It does make me giggle when I read the appalling spelling and grammar in a lot of the religious zealot's tweets. Even allowing for the limited number of characters you're allowed, they're still astonishingly awful and undermines their righteousness somewhat.

    Ever noticed that it is always the Christians who are the ones that cannot spell in these dicussions? Thought I should point that out, I joined in on the fun but cannot continue since I have a couple of websites to work on now.

    Of course, Twitter censors it even though it's still trending higher.

    MysteryOnward: RT @sleepsmith GOD PREDICTED THE "NO GOD" TWITTER ASSUALT—- IT'S THE REVENGE OF THE SPANIARD MUSLIMS AND WE MUST PRAY.

    The utterance that escaped my mouth upon reading this is perhaps best rendered as "Abuhvweeble?!"

    O/T – I was late for the Blogathon, so I didn't get my donation matched (of course, if I'd gotten the email telling me how to pay before that deadline, it might have helped).

    Anyhoo. Just pitched in for the Donors Choose Social Media Challenge on behalf of Cosmic Variance.

    Are there any projects you'd like to see funded? Preferably not by "Isis the Scientist", but the other ScienceBorg are alright. Or something else completely.

    I can't promise to give much more, but I still have a little of my arranged overdraft available.
