This Ought to Get Their Attention

Normally I wear an atheist t-shirt when I fly in order to generate conversation with the people sitting next to me.  Today there is no need for such a shirt, since I’m leaving the Bay Area with a new book that has a particularly eye-catching cover.

That should get somebody’s attention.

It’s also signed by this guy, who has a couple of chapters in it.  :)

    I have a range of shirts indicating my atheism or disrespect for religion, and what I wear on any given day sometimes reflects my mood, while at other times it just reflects the state of my laundry.

    Favourites from T-Shirt Hell include the most benign of a praying-mantis with its arms crossed and the word ‘Atheist’ written underneath. When I want to irritate people I wear one displaying Jesus’ crucifixion with the blurb “Men who wear sandals get what they deserve.”

    Yet another book to add to my ever-growing “to read” list . . .

    JT, let’s be honest. It’s signed by Richard Carrier. You will not be sitting in your seat, you will be in the bathroom calling the book “sweetheart” while trying to fold a piece of paper into a condom-shape.

      Alix, I suspect you are correct. :-)

    I read the God Delusion on my flight back from L.A to Sydney, and was sat next to an old Christian lady who couldn’t grasp the concept of someone not believing in Adam and Eve… I felt terrible… It’s one thing to go up against someone who’s asking for it, but a little old lady? I felt dirty all over!

    Hey, some input from a little old lady here: having your world view challenged is good for your aging brain. You did her a favor.

      Well, thankyou, perhaps I won’t feel so self conscious next time ;)

    Jealousy ensues! I’ve been wanting to read that one for a while.

      So far I’m pleased. Carrier’s chapters, as usual, are badass.
