I must crush PZ…for the children!

Come on, you know you’re Team GHJJ – root for the underdogs!

Five awesome atheist bloggers are competing to see who can raise the most money to support Camp Quest!

Since one of those bloggers is the indomitable PZ Myers of Pharyngula, we have made two teams in order to make this competition more fair.

Team 1: Greta Christina of Greta Christina’s Blog, Hemant Mehta of Friendly Atheist, Jen McCreight of Blag Hag, and JT Eberhard of Zerowing21.

Team 2: PZ Myers of Pharyngula.

The first team to raise $5,000 for Camp Quest, or the team that has raised the most by June 1, 2011 will win!

What will the winning team receive? Bragging rights. Pure and simple.

You can help your favorite team win by donating through ChipIn to support the team of your choice. Early reports think PZ has this sewn up, so if you like underdogs, give to this ChipIn and help his competition. Or you can make help make the pharyngulation complete by supporting PZ’s ChipIn.

All contestants and contributors receive: the knowledge that they have supported a fantastic program for freethinking families and their children.

Read more in the post below about why you should support Camp Quest!

Camp Quest is an absolutely fabulous program for the children of freethinkers. If you want to help the future of secularism (and give me bragging rights), please consider a donation!

    I am truly disturbed at how far ahead PZ is. I’m rooting for the underdog in this one. Mainly because I want the women to win. Just have to discuss the donation with my wife first.

    I tossed in $50. I like PZ, but I also like rooting for the rebels!

    If I weren’t graduating, moving, and having a wedding in the next month I’d help. The best I can do is cheer for you, Jen! good luck!

    I taunt you and your puny followers from my imposing fortress. You are all doomed, doomed, DOOMED.

    Just tossed in $50. We can’t let the cephalopod win in a walk: cephalopods can’t walk.

    I don’t think you stand a chance against the tentacled horde, but I’ve done what I can to help you out. :)

  7. 7

    See PZ scares me with his army of many tentacled creatures. But not being an old fart I want to donate to you. Can I donate to both?

  8. 8

    I just threw in $10.Take that, PZ “Cephalopod of Doom” Myers!

    No – donate to two of Team 1! Remember, trust no one over 30!(obDisclosure: I might not be trustable…)

    But, but I am over 30 (under 40). That is ageism and I will need to report you to the AARP.

    What are you trying to say about Hemant and JT? ;)

    950$ vs 2995.41$Doesn’t look good, but PZ must be crushed!

    How did anyone think this would last until June 1st?…

    I thought about saying something, but…

    All right, PZ is climbing so fast I couldn’t wait to talk to the wife, I had to donate right away. You’re catching up though, there is a chance…

  17. 17

    I thought I donated $10 to Blag Hag, but it ended up as a donation to PZ’s team. Skulduggery?

  18. 18

    You know what they say about old age and treachery versus beauty and youth…

  19. 19

    “Can I donate to both?”Only if you want to go to HELL!

    It would probably be more entertaining if you crushed the children for PZ. And it’d probably get your site a few more hits.

  21. 21

    Sorry Jen, but it looks like PZ got Richard Dawkins to help you and he’s already crushed your team.

    How did we lose to that no-good cracker-molester?!?!?!?

    It’s kinda funny. I was going to volunteer at the one in Michigan this summer because it isn’t too far from where I live, and it would be nice to escape from the very religious area I live in. I’ll be out of the country when the camp is running, unfortunately.

    I’m a longtime PZ fan and lurker; his numbers ran right over the total very quickly, so I figured it would be a good idea to assist your team in getting the *most* by May 1.Either way, kiddos and Camp Quest win!
