I’m doing a project on my Facebook page: The Atheist Meme of the Day. Every weekday, I’m going to post a short, pithy, Facebook-ready atheist meme… in the hopes that people will spread them, and that eventually, the ideas will get through. If you want to play, please feel free to pass these on through your own Facebook page, or whatever forum or social networking site you like. Or if you don’t like mine, edit them as you see fit, or make some of your own.
Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day:
“People find religion comforting” is not a good argument for why religion is true. Wanting something to be so doesn’t make it so. Plus, many believers don’t find religion comforting — they find it upsetting, confusing, guilt-tripping, and demoralizing. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.
