Epic footgun is epic


As covered elsewhere, Twitter is ABSOLUTELY ASPLODE with controversy over the present number-one trending topic of the past, oh, six hours or so: No God.

Sadly, this was started by @RevRunWisdom, an extraordinarily popular reverend that spouts pithy catch-phrases for the sheep to regurgitate. He tweeted “Know God… Know Peace. No God.. No Peace.” Christians took it upon themselves to retweet this in a number of variations, some transposing the two, some changing punctuation. Atheists talk about there being no god at all, quite frequently. Some people use “god” and “no” in the same tweet; moreso than those that use all four words.

The result? “No God” gets the trend, the rest falls by the wayside. Atheists explode with delight, as, despite several attempts, no atheist memes had ever made it to the trending topics, and this one was handed to us by the theists, raising awareness that “no god” is an option like no other Twitter-based campaign yet.

    This made me such a happy chappy last night !! And I got about 4 tweets from irate religiousnuts complaining. Two said “I’ll pray for you” to which I replied “Well I’ll think for you” needless to say they didn’t understand my point :-)

    The only reply I got from a Christian was not a DM, but was a blatant attempt by the guy to sell his book about atheism and absurdities (he’s a religious nut). I reported him for spamming (which, IMO, he obviously was).

    Other than that, the whole “no god” thing was the most fun I’ve had on Twitter to date. Let’s hope that there are many more fun times like that to come. I really enjoy it when the religious zealots get their panties in a bunch over the littlest things.
