“Congratulations! By visiting this Web site you have announced to the world that you are an atheist! This announcement is permanent and irrevocable”
Congratulations! By making such an arrogant assumption you have permanently and irrevocably renounced any and all right to call me and any other person with religious or spiritual beliefs “deluded” or “misguided” or “full of crap”.
“our automated system has already sent notification of your godlessness to both the Library of Congress and your mother. We will mention you to the Pope the next time we see him.”
Knock yourself out. My mother doesn’t even have an internet connection, and I fail to see how the Library of Congress would see the cultural significance of “this person is an atheist”, or considering it worth cataloguing if there is no comprehensive and coherent argument backing this statement up. And I don’t think the FBI or the CIA or MI5 or ASIO are going to give a toss either. In addition, the Pope doesn’t know me from Adam anyway so while you’re telling him I’m an atheist you might as well tell him I’m also a snake charmer. Anyway, you don’t even know my name, so what are you going to tell the Library of Congress and the Pope? “This bloke’s an atheist. I don’t know his name, and he’s not gone into detail about what he believes, but we’ve come to the conclusion that he is an atheist based solely on the fact that he has visited this website”? Good luck.
Do they have jokes where you come from? Just wondering.
