OMG! — Tweet of The Day

(Want to favorite it, retweet it? here’s the original Twitter link.)

No, no, theists don’t get exclusivity on words, “god” is just a word — for a construct. Not to mention that it’s theists who aren’t supposed to take their god’s name in vain.

Don’t you, worshipers of that Abrahamic god, know that it is blasphemous to use “Oh my god”?

Actually, I am more inclined to say “Oh my Zeus!” (◕‿~)✿

Saying that atheists can’t say “OMG” ’cause we’re godless is like saying that theists can’t say “common sense” ’cause they lack it. @Monicks

Atheism is not a religion, it’s not even my hobby

Now, believe it or not, I don’t really enjoy talking about religion all the time. In fact not only is atheism not a religion, it’s not even my hobby. And that’s the great thing about being an atheist — it requires so little of your time….

There is a growing trend in this country that needs to be called out, and that is to label any evidence-based belief a “religion.” Many conservatives now say that a belief in man-made climate change is a “religion,” and Darwinism is a “religion,” and of course atheism — the total lack of religion — is somehow a “religion” too, according to the always reliable Encyclopedia Moronica…

We’re not two sides of the same coin, and you don’t get to put your unreason up on the same shelf with my reason. Your stuff has to go over there, on the shelf with Zeus and Thor and the Kraken, with the stuff that is not evidence-based, stuff that religious people never change their mind about, no matter what happens…
