Biography

Cuttlefish are shy and elusive creatures; when necessary, they hide in their own ink. This particular cuttlefish has chosen as its habitat the comment threads of science, religion, and news sites, where it feeds on the opinions of those who are emboldened by the cloak of internet anonymity. Cuttlefish is an atheist and a skeptic, and is madly, passionately in love with science.

Before The Beginning

Day one was the day in which God creates light, And the Earth—which came first, if my thinking is right— Day two, we get water, both vapor and sea; Then land, and some gardens, we get on day three; The sun, and the moon, and the stars, on day four; Day five we get fishes …

An atheist loves cruelty; an atheist loves death; Defending immorality with every …

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.
