The best thing about new atheists

I have frequently giggled at the term “new atheists.”  In my eyes, the atheists nowadays are a lot like the atheists of ole, there’s just more of us.

Of course, there is one distinction that really tweaks the devout…

    Had this up as my facebook status with the line: “Guess which kind I am…”

    Atheists have been quite vocal over the years. Here’s a better cartoon:

    FIRST PANEL – Five theists shouting “Stay quiet!” at one atheist saying “No!”

    SECOND PANEL- Three theists shouting “Stay quiet!” at one atheist saying “No!” and the other two theists are looking at each other with their bibles at their sides.

    THAT’s the cartoon I’d like to see.

      Mine would be slightly amended version of yours.

      The First Panel would have a follow up panel where the theists gesture towards a noose and ask “how about being quiet now” with the theist merely replying with an ambiguous gulp.

      The Second panel would have a follow up panel where the three theists would say “help, help, we’re being oppressed!” and the remaining two theists would be slowly walking away, hiding their faces in shame.

      That would be accuracy.
