Me, I’d use my educational bullets in a modern .50 cal. sniper rifle. ;-)
“I would use a machine gun…”
You would have to to make any impression on the ignorance of a creationist. I like the concept for a game, it could even be educational.
Yeah. That would make one wicked game. I’d buy it for sure. Grand Thinking Atheist… Imagine the Character possibilities!
Play as Richard Dawkins
*sense Christians from 500 yards away*(start with pistol)
Play as PZ Myers
*ability to summon Kraken (giant squid)* (start with machine gun)
of course, you’d need a cheat to play as PZ Myers.
Me too! Then I could be a knowledge dispensing superhero, meting out information wherever it is needed:
Finally, I’ll have an excuse to wear these tights!
If only I had had one of those educational Dawkins guns with me last week, I would have cheerfully plugged one of my students. He was asking for it! [Link]
HA! I love that he’s on a bicycle!
Wow. Well drawn and a great tagline.
It makes me feel a little inadequate about the standard of drawing in my own comics.
I am not really the confrontational type. I think I would like to set up a bunch of educational landmines overnight. Just imagine, one is walking along and all of a sudden, blam, one a struck by a bunch of small and sharp facts.
Like the landmines, I would use educational cluster bombs. They keep giving for years after they are deposited, and they are easier to distribute.
There is a site, Atheist Nation, which has an extensive collection of educational bullets, er videos, on atheism;
I thought we already had “smart bombs”.
It’s a nice sentiment, but it loses impact by repeating the “christianity comes from mithraism” canard. If we want to be taken seriously in our claims to be interested in the truth over dogma, then stuff like this isn’t helping.
Canard? They totally ripped off Mithras. And the egyptians and everyone else, but seriously.
“Canard? They totally ripped off Mithras. And the egyptians and everyone else, but seriously.”
In the same way that biologists (rightfully) laugh at ignorant creationist claims, so to do biblical hisorians laugh at ignorant claims like Jesus mythicism and christian traditions having been stolen from mithraism, or other non-jewish sources.
We cannot preach that people refrain from making ignorant pronouncements in subjects that they have not studied, or have only done so with bias, if we fail to follow that example ourselves.
Truth is more important than one-liners and bumper-sticker slogans. It also tends to be far more nuanced and interesting.
“…I would use a machine gun rather than a pistol.”
Most schools seem to be using Pez dispensers.

Ondoher, do you have any good reading on this subject? I’ve only ever seen the evidence to support the claim that Mithra was the inspiration for the Christ myth. I would love to see some unbiased information on this subject.
And sure was funny to see Dawkins with a colt 1911. I would have pictured him as a Walther PPK kind of guy.
