The Atheist Corner
« on: December 30, 2010, 08:38:08 PM »
If you are an atheist, and would like to join our new atheist only group, then this thread is for you. You'll have access to a atheists-only area and receive special offers and announcements reserved only for them. There are only 2 prerequisites to admittance -

1. You must be an atheist, which will be verified by viewing your posting history

2. Your post history must be 100 posts or greater

If you meet these two requirements, you will be admitted by posting in this thread that you wish to have access.

I hope you enjoy the new Atheist Corner!

I'm not certain that I see the point in this, but sure why not, let's give it a try.

I've considered myself to be agnostic-atheist.  Do I qualify?

Oooh, sign me up, too.

Will we get coupons for free baby BBQs and satanic masses and the like? After all, that's what we atheists do when no theist is around, right?  ;D

DKit, when you see all the nasty things I said about you in the backroom, don't take it personally.

You believe evolution and there is no evidence for that. Where is the fossil record of a half man half ape. I've only ever heard about it in reading.

Being a Christian, I've made my decision. That decision offers no compromise; therefore, I'm closed to anything else.

Yes.

We'd like to give you free medical care.  That is, Christianity has used free medical care as a bribe for 2000 years and it has been its best recruiting tool.

^^^I forgot to say, DKit, that concerning the free toaster I have promised you that you will only get that reward in heaven.

That is, for 1500 years Islam has used the recruiting tool of 72 hot chicks fawning on you forever (do they giggle in chorus at your worst jokes?) but you only get them in Heaven.
