You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

While we’re on the subject of what atheists look like, Kate sends along this image (via LivelyIvy):
That is *so* you. [tags]atheist, atheism, roommate[/tags]
Oh please! What is this? Stereotype people night?
OK I know I’m suppose to laugh, but I don’t find this funny. Besides, have these people who do these things been down here to Bible Belt Hillbilly country? All the teenagers- mostly religious- look like that. Humm… I wonder why? Could it be because of all the religious pressure?
I love the soul patch for the lack of soul. I may have to grow one.
“Pop Tarts?” Well I have to admit I would notice Pop Tarts (yuck) long before the omnipresence of God. In fact the omnipresence of Pop Tarts seriously puts the existence of God into question…
Does noticing pap-tarts have something to do with the seeds of satan in his pockets?
So that’s why I have bad posture! *slaps forehead*
This is great…it IS satirical, right?
Has anyone besides me noticed the striking similarity between the child’s atheist drawing and the atheist house mate cartoon?
Also, why are all of these atheists men? I want an atheist cartoon that mocks atheist women!
Polly – trust me, it’s satirical. It’s meant to make fun of the typical Christian stereotype of atheists. Which makes it hilarious.
Much unlike the child’s drawing of an atheist…which isn’t a joke, and is frighteningly scary.
Ha! I’m never quite sure.
I’m actually a little encouraged by the child’s drawings. When that kid finds out that the system has lied to him/her about such mundane matters, (s)he is likely to start to distrust the voices of authority on the other much loftier matters that they cannot possibly know about – the supernatural.
What about atheist women? They probably think we’re all hot and seductive and trying to tempt their good christian men away from the faith. Wicked Jezebels, all of us
I guess I don’t understand the whole atheist thing. If you don’t believe God exists, ok. Why put up a website and go on tour? I don’t believe in the Tooth Fairy or the Locke Ness Monster, but I don’t spend my life trying to tell everybody that it aint real. So, why spend so much time and effort? Could it be that your trying to convince yourself that God’s not real? Honestly, I just don’t get it. Oh, also, most atheist site just bitch about religion. Again, so what? If you don’t believe, move on. I also think it takes way more faith to believe in evolution than creation. Nothing is created out nothing. Life is not created out of nothing. Science tells us that, and isn’t science what an atheist holds most dear?
Please explain the need to preach about something that doesn’t exist. Oh, by the way, I believe in the God of Abraham and that Jesus is his son.
They probably think we’re all hot and seductive
Let’s help that rumor along.
We need to write a book to plant the idea. Lets call it. “The Myth of the Atheist Seductress.”
Don’t entitle it “The Myth,” because that’s saying it’s not true. Entitle it “Beware of the Atheist Seductress.” Beware has always been an irresistible invitation. Include phone numbers or at least atheist singles meeting places, please.
The possibilities are staggering: Hot Heathens Escort Service… Godless Girls Girls Girls!… For a good non-religious time call Rational Rachel… Humanist Phone Sex… Beautiful skeptics want to talk dirty to you… Hollywood Freethinking Massage… Bright Babes…

OH WOW! I’m a sexy Jezebel! COOL!
Oh but Richard, I think Humanist women are too heady for phone sex.
Speak for yourself, Mriana daaaahhhling.
Karen, atheist seductress extraordinaire
Well you never know. All women are different.
Is it just me or is this forum thread really hot?
ROFLMBO! Oh yes, we turned the heat up a little.
My atheist housemate doesn’t resemble the picture at all, except for the goatee. I get an occasional ribbing about my cult meeting when I head off for church but that’s about it.
It’s actually me the Christian that’s always looking for my biology textbooks. And sporting Darwin fish badges…
I dont know about you guys, but i look just like that. Especially the seeds of satan. My christian friends like to eat them which i think is kind of contradictory, but w/e.
Atheists are open minded, when i saw this picture i laughed my head off cos it is exactly how a christian thinks. don’t think i know?? i used to be one of those stupid gulliable people, the reason i gave it up is because it is brainwashing. the reason atheists attack religeon so much is because, unlike the tooth fairy, it DOES affect them wether we like it or not, these religeous nutters infiltrate our schools and convert kids no older than 6yrs old (like they know anything about the universe) and teach them unquestionable faith. what if one of these kids turns out to be one of mine? what if one of these kids turns out to be the next president of the U.S??? by the way, ur stupid god is about as believeable as the toothfairy anyway.
I didn’t really find this funny. some parts were like the soul patch and the poptarts thing but the rest was just stupid. I know allot of christians and other people from different religions who dress like that some even look exactly like that.
I recommend growing the Satan seeds and smoking it. it’s good stuff!!!!
Is this supposed to be funny? Because it’s not. Atheists are like any other human – they dress how they want. Do all Christians hold signs with “God hates fags” on them? I think not…
@David Martens…I hope you realize that most people are probably reading your comment laughing nonstop. Let me just point out some rather…ironic excerpts…
“Why put up a website and go on tour? I don’t believe in the Tooth Fairy or the Locke Ness Monster, but I don’t spend my life trying to tell everybody that it aint real.”-Most atheists would find this funny for two reasons, you blindly believe in something that can easily be compared to Loche Ness and the tooth fairy. Also because I can safely say that religous television/advertising boasts a larger industry than atheism.
“So, why spend so much time and effort? Could it be that your trying to convince yourself that God’s not real?”-This just speaks for itself, perhaps because preachers need convincing that God DOES exist?
“Oh, also, most atheist site just bitch about religion. Again, so what?”-Most atheists bitch about religion for one reason: Integrity. We believe in that last statement ‘So what?”. Why should a religious fanatic tell someone they can’t marry who they want, or do what they want based on their beliefs.
“I also think it takes way more faith to believe in evolution than creation. Nothing is created out nothing. Life is not created out of nothing. Science tells us that, and isn’t science what an atheist holds most dear?”-While an atheist does hold science dear, science does not tell us nothing created everything: 1st law of thermodynamics. Also, evolution does not take more faith, in fact believing in an idea that is only perpetuated by the population masses. Regardless of when the science is conducted, proof for evolution will always be there. One final ironic thing about this comment, is that how does God exist? Is it on an infinite time scale and he/she has always existed? Where did he come from?
“Please explain the need to preach about something that doesn’t exist. Oh, by the way, I believe in the God of Abraham and that Jesus is his son.”- So this is just ironic since you said “preach”. Who are you to say that we preach about something that doesn’t exist, when thats all you guys are doing to us? What a hypocritical statement, I mean really! LOL
