Atheist packages more likely to go missing.

This is interesting.  An atheist German shoe company ran an experiment by shipping two packages to all their USA customers for a while.  One package was taped using their “Atheist” branded tape, and the other with normal old tape.  The result?  Packages branded with the word “Atheist” were ten times more likely to be lost.

I can think of a few possible explanations.

1.  God exists, and though it was once plagues and torment for those who doubted, it’s not been reduced to hiding their mail.

2.  Really bad luck for the atheist packages.

3.  Christianity doesn’t make people more moral.  In fact, it often makes them feel as though they have the right to fuck with people they don’t like.

I know which one my money’s on.
