Every Atheist vs Theist Debate in a Nutshell

The Blonde Nonbeliever offers a synopsis of just about every conversation between a theist and atheist… featuring Homer Simpson as the theist:

Atheist hints at nonbelief during some random conversation. Theist picks up on it, smells an opportunity, and bites. Theist, with a kind, approachable smile, gently inquires about Atheist’s beliefs. Atheist either dodges and says something bland like, “I don’t go to church anymore, but I’m still spiritual,” or blatantly asks, “I’m an atheist, you got a problem with that?” Theist uncontrollably envisions Satan standing before him.

Atheist focuses conversation back to the here and now, and redefines evidence and knowledge versus faith and dogma. References how it is very likely that said Theist is probably an adherent to the same religion he was born into.

That cartoon works on so many levels…

    It’s sad that the only comment I have for you is on the greatness of that Simpsons episode, when Homer sold his soul for a donut!

    And just like Flanders being the devil, there are many out there that are religious and believers that can really be the devil sometimes. Like in conversation.
