From the list of Top Ten one-liners from the Edinburgh (Scotland) Fringe arts festival this past weekend is this one from comedian Tom Stade:
“I like Jesus but he loves me, so it’s awkward.”
Let me get this straight. You think the Creator of the Universe cares personally about your life, and that you know, with absolute certainty, what he wants for all of humankind.
While I think that we’re basically alone, not very special, and are just fumbling through our random existence trying to do the best we can.
And I’m the arrogant one?
Finally, Adrian‘s been getting a lot of attention for his compilation of 101 Atheist Quotations, many of which I hadn’t heard before. Here are a few of my new favorites:
- I’m a polyatheist — there are many gods I don’t believe in. – Dan Fouts
- If all the Christians who have called other Christians “not really a Christian” were to vanish, there’d be no Christians left. — Anonymous
- Gods dont kill people. People with Gods kill people. — David Viaene
Are there others you like that are not on his list?
