Boring Atheists

'I can't stand atheists – but it's not because they don't believe in God. It's because they're crashing bores' so says author Charlotte Allen in an interview about her book The Human Christ: The Search for the Historical Jesus.
It doesn't seem a very Christian thing for her to say and i do wonder if she has ever actually sat through a laugh a minute Church service but as God is my witness, us Atheists are anything but boring and to prove it here is my life story.
Actually, i was going to make something up about my mother still being a virgin when i was born and after being murdered in my early 30s, how i came back to life after 3 days and how my father hears the prayers of every one of the 7 billion people on the planet but i thought nah, nobody would believe a story like that.
Instead i will rise above the taunts and return to my giant book of Knitting Patterns of the World 1750 - 1900. Boring indeed. Pah.

because believing in fairy tales is about a million times more exciting, after all.

The imagination is a wonderful thing Annie.

Whatever happened to "hate the sin, love the sinner"? Cos I'm not feeling the love, Charlotte.

Not to speak for all agnostics, but am finding that I have less and less patience for 'theists' of all types.

(Present company excepted, of course. ;-) )

A theoretical group hug. That's beautiful.
