Gee, I Guess Maybe I’m Not An Atheist After All

I’ve missed the point of atheism—missed it all along— I thought I was an atheist, but now I know I’m wrong: An atheist hates God, you see, because he loves his sins (It says so in the bible, and the bible always wins).

Sophisticated … Something.

I needed a few vital groceries So I laced up my shoes and set forth But I’d somehow forgotten my compass So I didn’t know which way was North! It’s just down the street that I’m heading And I’ll hope against hope for the best The store’s on the left when I get there But …

An Atheist Town Council Prayer

The town of Greece, NY, as a result of their recent court decision, is going to have a town council opening prayer delivered by an atheist. This has left a segment of the Christian population utterly befuddled; when the bible is the only book you need, you are not likely to have a dictionary handy. …

Repeat After Me:

So you’ve got a new ambition—it’s to write a gospel song— They will play it on the radio, and maybe sing along But your knowledge of the bible isn’t really all that strong If you’re thinking that’s a problem, I can tell you that you’re wrong! You can write it with a single verse—not even …

I’m Back, Mostly

What a lovely returning gift–81 comments, most in verse! I will likely be scarce for a little bit–my back is threatening to secede from the rest of my body. Driving is not natural for invertebrates, and I have done much driving and much sleeping on couches since you last heard from me, and I have …

Road Trip–Open Thread

Just a quick note to say, don’t expect me around for the next week to 10 days; I have no idea whether I will even have internet access at all. I expect this comment thread to be full of wonderful stuff when I get back. That’s a reasonable expectation for an internet comment thread, isn’t …
