Here’s a random sampling of email received throughout the year.
Just need to say that although I only stumbled upon your website earlier this evening, I’m planning on reading as much of it as I can. It’s great.
I’ve been atheist as long as I can remember and have been smiling at some of the things you’ve written and nodding at others.
I work in a CE high school in the UK due to the fact it converted to CE after I joined and I can’t be arsed to leave yet. It pains me to see apparently intelligent people with high levels of education believing in complete shite. Worse still that they teach it to kids. I make sure the kids know where I stand if they ask me whilst being respectful to the deluded staff members around us.
Thanks for this!
I think I searched for arguments against religion or something to arm me with a comeback for my new colleague – the overbearing Baptist.

Subject: who is really right?
Well if you are right then I have nothing to fear. When I die I die and thats the end but what happens if I am right? Any intelligent person would say I am not taking any chances! And yes I know if you open this or not. I will tell you when you do!
Love, yours in Christ
Editor’s Note: Where does your average religiously insecure Christian run when they have no real argument to support their beliefs? Pascal’s Wager! (Shocking, isn’t it?) And the uber-childish “And yes I know if you open this or not. I will tell you when you do!” speaks volumes. Poor child.
Subject: Why bother living?
I jumped off Tower Bridge around 3am a few years ago. I have various scars from my Stanley knives, including up the inside of my left arm and my throat. I have had my forehead smashed into my brain (whole forehead, nose and upper orbits of both eyes, 25years ago. Given 70/30 against living and if living then vegetative.). I have had another few fractures in the rear of my skull from another accident. I have had four brain haemmorages. I have lost count of my failed overdoses. I have epilepsy. I have schizophrenia. I have anosmia. I have sciatica. I fucking hate life.
I have given up trying suicide because I fucking hate psychiatric hospitals even more. I have some stupid cunt of a psychiatrist who says to take various pills to straighten my mind, but he won’t write a prescription. My GP won’t write the prescriptions, the fucking hospitals won’t give me a prescription.
The arseholes want me to kill myself, but they won’t fucking let me. Gimme a sodding reason for that pile of wank. They seem to enjioy watching my suffering. Why won’t the cunts just let me die? Am I sentenced to live? If so what offence did I commit to get that?

By Bedunda Uni Verse regarding her profound conspiracy theory delusions:
i know you get a lot of messages, but maybe you get the time to sent a short answer to me…considering the current economy of the world and the illusion that is being broken by the ever increasing flow of information via the internet…did you ever considered dec 21st as a possible false flag?
Editor’s Note: Whenever someone asks questions using vague, cryptic, unqualified words and expressions in this manner, you are most certainly dealing with a raving lunatic. After asking for clarification as to what “false flag” meant, this idiot responded with more telltale vagueness.
i mean false flag like 9/11
Editor’s Note: Lunatics sincerely believe they know the truth [about whatever] and assume that everyone else should logically understand them. Again I asked for her to elaborate.
i mean the government creating fake threats like 9/11 so they can implement their laws…they create a problem and they offer a sollution…and maybe dec 21st might be some fear creating date so they can use HAARP to modify the weather and shit like that
Editor’s Note: Okie dokie. From here the exchange when from zero to batshit crazy in 3.6 seconds. She vomited forth the requisite “sheeple” tripe and ran the conspiracy theorist playbook. My money says, should she read this, that she’ll claim that I didn’t post all of her emails to hide the truth. Perhaps. Yes, the truth of her nuttiness. Okay, so the woman is clearly deranged – but kinda of hot in that raving lunatic sorta way. I’d probably bang her once, but then she’d kill me in my sleep and feed my balls to a wolf. Mmmmm, I think I’ll pass.
Dear Friend, So you believe you came from nothing. How familiar are with Mathmatics? The probability that life came from random chance (nothing) even if you believe the earth is over 4.5 billion years old is 0.
There are over 20 amino acids necessary for life. Each one is way more complex than a Rubik’s cube. Every amino acid is specifc to a RNA in a DNA strand. There are 64 codons but only 20 amino acids, This generate codes for multiple amino acids. When the amino acids are lined up using the RNA code, they form a protein, which is shipped off to another part of the cell to do its function. Some proteins can be hundreds of amino acids long. Any life is impossible without amio acids.
The laws of probability cannot allow this to happen any more than randomly twisting Rubik’s Cube would result in a solved puzzle. Random twisting would not even allow you to see all 43 quintillion (43,252,003,274,489,856,000 to be exact) combinations. As Joyner explains, “Twisting the cube at random would never allow every combination to be seen, no matter how long the cube is twisted and turned” (2001, Mathematics of Rubik’s Cube). Rubik’s Cube cannot be solved by random twists; however, using intelligently designed patterns, Rubik’s Cube can be solved within seconds.
Editor’s Note: Dear friend, so you must be one of those fucking morons who believes that evolution is “random chance.” [clearing throat] It isn’t. So when you say that life coming from random chance approaches zero, you would be correct. And no one here disagrees with you. But nice try with the straw man. Also, Rubik’s number is a few orders of magnitude SMALLER than Avogadro’s constant. Clearly you’re unaware of how many molecules are in even a single gram of an amino acid. (Spectacular FAIL, Joseph.) And know that it’s hard to take seriously anyone who asks if I’m “familiar with mathematics” when he himself can’t spell mathematics. Please, leave science to the big boys and park your silly god outside the schoolyard gates. Oh yeah, and Rubik’s Cube fucking rocks!

btw. poor child,
greetings from ny.
Editor’s Note: Heads up. First comes a patently feigned compliment followed by some weird cryptic message that only the mind of an idiot would think is obvious.
Hey brother, I’m subscribed to your page and love godlessbastard.com! You are doing exactly what you’re supposed to be doing! Religion is a prison to keep us from doing what our bodies want to do. But, nonetheless, you are my brother. We go way back, or should I say, way out? Key Word: Nanci Danison
Peace! (and keep doin’ what yer doin’!)
Editor’s Note: I replied with an expression of confusion and a request for context as neither name mentioned rang a bell. The nutcase responded with more kookery and some context that had nothing to do with any content on my site. What we have here is a crankcase promoting another crankcase.
Sorry for the confusion. We know each other, but not on this plane. Have patience, watch the whole series before commenting. PEACE!
Editor’s Note: Okay, cat’s out of the bag. Stephane’s an intellectually insecure Near Death Experience (NDE) nutcase masquerading as a skeptic trolling the internet for a morsel of validation from other [read: real] skeptics. I responded with a short note explaining that NDEs have been quite thoroughly debunked and their effects explained by science. Of course he responded as expected.
IRONY ALERT: Self-defeating argument coming from an idiot too clueless to see it coming…
I thought the same, but can you really say what happened to someone else? If you watch them, there’s something there that is very very hard to dismiss. By the way, it is the 25th aniversary of the showing:
Editor’s Note: I responded, “No, Stephane, I can’t ‘really say what happened to someone else’…but neither can you. (It works both ways there, big guy.) But the big difference is that I make no claims, so I need not present any proof. You and Nanci are the ones making claims, so the burden is yours and yours alone. Problem is, personal experience is NOT proof, but science does have much to say about it.“
The nutbag replied yet again, but as I have little time or desire to debate lunatics, his subsequent emails went straight into the trash bin.

You should know that HELL IS REAL. They have PROOF and very few people have heard it. They dug a deep hole in Russia for oil or something a while back and recorded the voices of the damned coming from the hole. When you hear this you cannot still deny JESUS. This is PROOF. You are one of GOD’S children and he LOVES you. You still have a chance to altar your life and insure you get to heaven. Share this video with you friends and family. Let them know that they can get to heaven to.

You do not have to thank me for this. I will pray for you.
Editor’s Note: I hate to respond to such insanity, but this explanation might clear up any confusion for anyone else who’s too fucking dense to spot a rather obvious hoax.
Subject: I WOULD NOT CAST MY PEARL BEFORE THE SWINE, YOU BIG PILE OF DOGS STINKING SHIT BALL A SLAVE FOR THE DEVILS AKA DUNG!!!
Editor’s Note: This idiot (Sandra Layden) works or volunteers for cult leader and convicted felon Tony Alamo Ministries. Apparently Ms. Layden didn’t care much for my Godspotting entry about Tony and his brainwashed ilk which prompted her to send me an offensively long and nauseating email. Of course I responded in kind which prompted the vile foul-mouthed bitch within to respond as she did [above]. Mmmmm. I wonder if she kisses jesus with that mouth. BIG PILE OF DOGS STINKING SHIT BALL? Okay, I have to admit, that’s pretty god damn funny. Here’s a small taste of Sandra. This ambulance chaser and “CEO” is also available for ongoing feedback here.
Subject: Love Your Site!!!
Stumbled on it while searching for info on why the Islamists were so upset about some parody on Muhammed. I have bookmarked the site so I can read it all. I now know I’m not alone in my thinking. After painting my easter eggs as a child I figured out there was no bunny, Santa or god. Spent 12 years in college: zoology, chemistry, physics etc… Retired 9 years ago and question and test everything.

I’m not going to pretend that I am anywhere near as intellectual as you are or that I can formulate an argument to any such degree, but if you will excuse the intended pun, I find both you and your site to be revelatory.
I was raised in a strict Irish catholic home (despite being having lived all my life in Birmingham, England) and as a child I have simply lost count of the amount of times I cried myself to sleep in fear of both what I was being taught and what would happen to me should I fall foul of the path on which I was being led. I am now a 26 year old man and although I have since managed to outgrow these insecurities, I shall always remember them, both in as much as how utterly soul destroying they were to me as a child and how they shaped my perspective on the world at large.
The reason for my telling you all of this is that despite the innumerable sites online dedicated to atheism and the rejection of religion, I have yet to find one which echoed my sentiments in such a clear and downright unapologetic manner as yours. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart for your contribution to the debate and for the first time showing me that I am not alone in my deep seeded resentment of religious rhetoric and how it is shamelessly injected into the hearts and minds of those not capable of defending themselves against it.
I understand that what with all of the mail you receive (both good and bad) and the added pressure of maintaining the site that you will scarcely have time to reply and I fully understand. Just knowing that you have received this email is good enough for me, but if you have read this far, I would again like to thank you and ask that you never stop what you are doing. You are a good man and the world needs more people like you. I travel a great deal to the States so if ever I am in southern Florida, I would love to meet up with you, if only to shake your hand and thank you in person.

Subject: Hi Godless one!
Just letting you know I am still here! I was very amused that you found a fellow atheist like myself so objectionable! Practice mindful loving kindness! Dave Thompson.
Editor’s Note: I banned this jackass from my Facebook fan page months ago for being a loathsome pest. I suppose after stewing in it for so long this email was his ineffectual attempt to get under my skin or something, I dunno. [shrug] Anyway, the collective works of this tool are going up on his own special page in the Hall of Shame shortly. David is one of those haughty moral high-ground wannabe Buddhists who has deluded himself into believing that “mindful meditation” has made him a better, more peaceful person. But what this crank case is far too stupid to realize [or perhaps it's just willful ignorance] is that mindful meditation is just another made-up bullshit pseudo-science whose only value lies in the placebo effect hungrily gobbled up by lost souls like himself. He incessantly spews the tired old “Practice mindful loving kindness!” sign-off (don’t forget the exclamation point) without taking notice of the fact that his promotion clearly fails. One need look no further than this editorial comment for unwavering proof. Q.E.D. Yes, David, you are still most certainly here! (Again, don’t forget the exclamation point.) I’m so amused.
Subject: New Posts
Well, you’ve really outdone yourself in your latest rants. The hypocrites don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell against your impressive logic. Thanks again for being the ultimate antithesis against true evil.
Editor’s Note: While I’m flattered by the compliment, there’s nothing about me that’s impressive.
Are you really Penn Jillete? If not, has he contacted you about your site and are you guys friends?
I love the site!
I recently returned to the internet after not being connected for awhile & found your site in my bookmarks. I had completely forgotten about it. I have one thing to say about what I have read so far. AMEN!!!! I laughed my ass off while reading the banana bit. Refreshing to see something irreverent so well written. I look forward to reading everything else there. After seeing Religulous, I have been looking for something entertaining in this vein. Well written. I have heard before about the banana belief. How can anyone with half a brain believe such ridiculous crap? Thanks. I think I’ll go back now & read some more.
I live in the bible belt & every time I leave my immediate neighborhood, I pass any number of churches with signs like the one shown. Everyone accepts them. But if I put up a sign promoting atheism, I would no doubt be barraged with complaints. I am amazed by the number of christians who have never read the original 10 commandments before they were watered down, or know that there were actually more than 10. The one which proclaims that anyone caught working on sunday be stoned is my favorite. How many present day christians would fall into that category? There are atheist organizations here, but joining a group just to be around others who believe the same as I do seems too much like organized religion to me.
I have said for a long time, If there is a god, he’s an asshole.
Subject: Love your site!
Just wanted to let you know how much I’m enjoying exploring your site. I found it bookmarked in my “Atheism” folder but I must have saved it a while ago because I forgot all about it. (Sorry!)
There are LOTS of atheism-related sites out there but what I like about yours is how well you express yourself. Your thoughts are well-organized and you’re unapologetic in your beliefs. Not to mention the sheer amount of stuff you’ve written. I’m looking forward to going through it all. I’ve been an atheist for almost 40 years, and you brought up points I’ve never even considered before. That’s refreshing!
But tell me, do you still update your site? I notice you have a 2011 archive, so are still active?
Thanks for all of your time and effort in putting The Godless Bastard together.
Subject: You are going to hell..
To the Godless Bastard,
I’m a bastard just like you. And yes, I lied in the subject line just so you would read my mail in hopes of reading another christian hate mail and laughing to the level of stupidity people fall to.
I’d just like to tell you that you’ve done an excellent work, what with compiling, researching, editing, writing and re-writing all those articles and stuff. Keep up the great work. People like you are the reason atheism is still alive and kicking.
I live in India, a country where you find stupids from all hokum religions that ever existed, exist or perhaps, will exist except of course, the traditional African religions. And the daily amount of religious shit that they shovel on your face is just unimaginable. They think their poop smells like flowers so they don’t need to pay taxes but fuck them and fuck them all. And their is nothing much anyone can do about it because debating or arguing with these people is just of no use, as you already know. Plus, you rarely find an intellectual bastard to discuss atheism and other related stuff with because of so much of indoctrination.
However, I’d like to write with you or contribute to the expansion of The Godless Bastard or any related project in any way I can. I’d really like to work with like-minded people, like you and would be happy to contribute in any way I can. Drop me a line and let me know. Thanks.

When people ask what religion I belong to, I say that I am a pedestrian. It is more important to walk it. 10 years ago, I experienced a seemingly miraculous remission and I would like to share the details with you. I am a hair designer and about 15 years ago a client, who had just returned from India, gave me a photo of a beautiful Indian woman who was smiling with genuine joy. I had no idea who she was but her smile touched me because it seemed that she knew something wonderful. That little photo stayed in my wallet’s plastic photo holder for 5 years. I looked at it every day. I had a lifelong health condition that affected me 24/7. I was violently allergic to 6 things. 2 kinds of indoor molds, dust mites, dust mite poop, cats, dogs. I sneezed my way through life with a brick up my nose, red eyes and an inability to sleep because I could not breathe. Immunologists said that I should live in a plastic bubble. I refused to get allergy shots because I had met people who had adverse reactions from them, so I managed my allergies with anti-histamine, nasal sprays, and tissue. 10 years ago, I saw an ad in the paper seeking people with indoor allergies for a medical study. I would be paid for participating if I was found to be a good specimen for the study, and I would take either a placebo or a asthma medication that they wanted to test on indoor allergy sufferers. First they put me through rigorous tests to see if my body was healthy, they tested my allergies and were shocked at my reactions to the 6 offenders. They had me keep a diary of my symptoms for a month. So here is what happened. On the friday before my 40th birthday, 10 years ago (my birthday May 31 fell on that sunday), I was told that I would begin taking the medication or placebo on monday. That saturday, may 30 I went to a health food store and there was a poster on the bulletin board with the same photo as in my wallet. It said that this woman was ‘the hugging saint’ named Amma and she was giving out free hugs in seattle on sunday. I asked my 11 year old son Paul to go with me and get a hug. My husband and 14 year old son had other plans for that day. So off to seattle we went for an adventure. We got in line and were told we might have to wait until 4 am for our hug based on our hug ticket number. We were ok with that. Amma gave a talk and sang beautifully before the hugs began. For some unexplained reason, a (monk?) in an orange robe came to me and my son and said “give Amma your burden”. He then moved us to the front of the line as the time came for the hugging. We were shocked and wondered, why should we go first when there are handicapped people and families with tired children? I pondered the words “give Amma your burden” and I absolutely did not know what the hell that meant. At that time I didn’t know anyone with cancer or problems that I would consider a burden. I did not think he meant my own health issues and it would never occur to me to give someone my allergies. As I walked towards Amma, she smiled and in my mind I said this ” I don’t know what my burden is, but YOU know what it is, and whatever it is…I give it to you”. She then laid my head on her chest and kissed my cheek several times stroking my hair, she said “my daughter my daughter” in my ear. Then she lifted my face and looked at me close up and smiled so profoundly beautifully that I will never ever forget it. She did the same with my son, even pulling him back to her for another hug several times as he began to walk away, she playfully sprinkled rose petals on his head. Paul and I were speachless after that. We sat down, feeling unable to stand….kind of floating….both of us were soaked in our own tears that were pouring out of our eyes. We headed home and basically were very glad we had chosen to have that little adventure. It was a wonderful birthday for me. I woke up on monday, ready to go to the medical center and begin the experimental treatment , before I left the house I called my mom and she didn’t recognize my voice. I realized that the brick was gone from my sinuses for the first time in my life. I took a deep breath through my nose and both nostrels were perfectly clear, a sensation I had never experienced. I did not associate this with Amma at that point. I went to the doctors office and the specialist who had been working with me noted the extreme change in my voice. She also noticed that my eyes were clear and bright. She asked me some questions and decided to prick me with the 6 allergens again. This time, instead of golfball sized welts raising up immediately, nothing happened. So she did it again……nothing. My heart began to skip a beat when this began to sink in. She said I was no longer allergic to these 6 things and in her clinical practice she had never heard of someone having 6 extreme allergies dissappear spontaniously. She was dumbfounded. I took a deep breath, through my nose, and told her that the day before I had gone down to seattle and been hugged by an Indian woman. I showed her the picture in my wallet and said “maybe this was the burden she removed”. Since that day, I have been free of the burden of my allergies. It wasn’t until they were gone that I realized what a burden they had been. This year I turned 50 and again Amma was giving hugs in seattle on may 31. She smiled into my heart and laid my head on her chest wispering “my daughter, my daughter” into my ear as she stroked my hair. She has hugged over 31 million people from all walks of life in 191 countries 7 days a week for the past 40 years. She teaches about compassion, and demonstrates it with her every breath.
I don’t know why, I was just moved to share that with you.
Editor’s Note: I replied at length and dismantled her entire diatribe, but I won’t bore you with the details. Instead I’ll summarize to spare your valuable time: This idiot believes that an Indian woman cured her numerous aliments with a fucking hug. Said idiot also has no grasp of the difference between causation and correlation, is blind to her confirmation bias that seeks to fill the void in her middle-aged life, and is unable to reconcile the inevitable nature of probability to score an occasional win given a world population of over 7 billion people. And yes, Janine does know exactly why she was moved to share this with me. We all know why.
Subject: Interesting webpage
Don’t stop writing this Shit!
Subject: Gotta share this with ya, fellow bastage (-:
I remember you said you’d visited my site a few years ago, but just in case you hadn’t seen the above page, I felt compelled to share my bumper sticker/t-shirt sloges with you. It had been a few years since I’d read them myself, and I’d forgotten I’d written some of them! You’ll notice that some of them are dated (back to the Bushman admin), but still relevant in theme.
I wrote all of them except the second one on NASCAR (it was written by my witty atheist penpal in London, named David Hood – like me, he is a fan of your site, which I am constantly telling people about, trying to get more readers for you…In fact, my two favourite freethought sites are yours and the awesome landoverbaptist.com, with which I am sure you are quite familiar!).
Keep up the good bastardizing work, ya bastage…at least you’re not an icehole (“Johnny Dangerously”)
–Yours for the Lard, Cosmic Chris
Anyone you know? Hah. Either way this guy’s got some balls to have that plate in this area. I was asked a half dozen times in the first few weeks when I moved here if I had found a church yet. So annoying. Plus I have never seen so many pro-jesus licence plates in any other area. I wonder how many times he has been keyed.
Anyway, I gave the guy a thumbs up as I passed…
Editor’s Note: Serious irony alert. The following petulant little twat who’s too young to know which side of his playpen smells the worst lectures me on speaking disrespectfully to my elders [...wait for it...] and then calls his elder (that would be me) “an intolerable asshole.” And, by the way, the woman he’s defending came to my page in an unsolicited and uninvited manner to lecture me on getting right with god, and then fled (in hit-and-run style) like a coward when confronted by a response. Joe the hypocrite seems to think this is entitled to special respect by virtue of her birth year.
It’s worth noting that (a) the pledge of allegiance was written in 1892, and so has very little to do with the founding, and (b) the author was a Baptist minister.
Also, Godless Bastard: I find the way you speak to Mary Earnhart, who is your elder and has said or done nothing to deserve your shallow, inept, and self-congratulatory condescension, to be despicable. Whether or not there is a God, I feel pretty sure that you would be less of an intolerable asshole if you believed in him.
My sister was a fundie Christian believer and I’m not… She committed suicide 3 years ago this coming April 5th. Not worrying about whether or not she is in heaven is a great relief to me. I know that her body is lying in the ground, rotting. I’d much rather know that she has no consciousness and is not suffering pain any more than worrying about the alternative. Atheism is a far more comforting philosophy than any “godly” religion to me.
Godless Bastard. I’m a christian. I’m sorry for you. One day, when your time comes, then you will know. I pray that you learn before it’s too late. In the meantime, why are you kicking and screaming about christian people and the way they believe? Do you feel threatened or insecure about the way you believe?
What cracks me up is how angry non-believers get about it all. Hilarious. For the record, Im actually christian, and I dont think religion has any place in government. I believe we should be publicly governed by reason, and privately guided by our beliefs, whatever those may be. But I cant help laughing when people start throwing stones at christians. You know who words hurt? People like you, because you live in a world where those words matter. I live in a world where this is but a blink in an eternal existence, soooo… No, your verbal pot shots at my faith are really not much more impactful to me than, say… Having a gnat stuck in your car. Maybe it stays, maybe it leaves, and sure, its annoying, but… Its got a life span of a day or something, so why even notice it? pay attention to the road. It’ll just die all by itself eventually, like it was never real to begin with. But… Nonbelievers kick and scream when you refer to them as inconsequential insects, sooo…
It is true most Christians choose to pick and choose what parts of the bible they do or don’t follow,BUT!!!!!!!! First make sure you read all the definition of hypocrite. Jesus gave the proper definition. The religious leaders knew the law and sought to not only teach it but enforce it with zero room for forgivness nor repentance. When they themselves couldn’t keep the entire law ,and God had allowed for repentance to someone who truley aknowledged there sin.the religious leaders had forgotten grace and mercy, Jesus called them hypocrites, they winked at a camel and strained at a gnat was Jesus expression. See athiest love to trip Christians and laugh when we fail to live up to what we teach. When they read the bible or hear us quote it they are quick to use it against us, there is just one problem ,well many but under the one problem. YOU DON’T KNOW GOD! So naturally you don’t know the history of the word,the people of the bible nor the purpouse of the word.so naturally when a Christian dose wrong you say hypocrite. You don’t understand Gods law you only read it and dismiss it as religious jargon.if I break the law purposefully and condemn others in selfrightousness I’m a hypocrite you then would be right. I’m not as you say cherry picking,I’m educating or making an attempt. The law is there to tell us what God expects,but we can’t be what the law demands, aka. Saints.again you don’t know God so you probably don’t get it. Why give a law to man knowing he can’t keep it. This is where it gets heavy man stay with me. Satan wants man to worship him,to follow him. God said Jo Satan rebelled and wanted to turn all men against God. Satan argued man can lead himself if he is such a great creation and in your image. God said man was created to follow and listen to me and my rules. Well as you might not have figured God put a time to prove to Satan and man he is right. So God latex down the law. Why? To prove we can’t make it without him. What dose this have to do with hypocrites? Everything. A man who tries to live as god says and fails but seeks repentance is a Christian. But one who refuses to aknowledged his own sins just to condemn another that my friend is a hypocrite.I’m a sinner saved by grace and not by my own works but his who died for me. Without Jesus you are without that hope denying you have sin. For sin in its simplest form is disobeying God to whinch all are guilty.but If I seek to do through him his will,and fail at any point .ark least I try. You don’t try and believe you are fine not even acknowledging you are a sinner,so by definition you are the hypocrite,I can’t speak for your friend and I don’t claim to be a better person then you. As a man in the flesh we are equal. But because I choose to believe in Jesus my hope and eternal state at this point is better than a nonbeliver.not because I do or don’t do good but because the good that I do is Christ in me. Instead of critisizing christianty research the history not of the bible but what it says.while a hypocrite is saying one thing and doing another its more than that. Definitions are brief summrys to explain our language but not all inclusive. You should note Webster dictionary author was a Christian. Look and you will find God Jesus several of the prophets ,sin the law, and oh yes hypocrite. You think yourself to be clever but the bible says the wisdom of me is foolish ,that is carnal man or man without God. Hope my words are not hurtful nor intrusive but educational and helpful.

Hey there Mr. Bastard. See you getting your site back up and running so I thought I would give you something to scoff about while doing it. Watch the attachment as it goes to the politichicks on youtube. I would like to see your opinion on them and on Victoria Jackson (trust me, you couldn’t miss her if you tried) on your site or at least a reply back. Good luck with your kick ass site and keep making my day:-)
Subject: By the way, I fucking love your site…
When I first started reading it I was still (kind of) a Christian and thought it was the most vile, unapologetic, blasphemous, offensive, blatant criticism of religion ever… Hell, I was shocked that anyone would have the audacity to label religious beliefs as “lunacy” or “delusion”. But yeah, once I realized how brutally you destroyed the pseudo-logical arguments I used to defend my faith, I started to come around, the “favorites” list was also a big help. You were one of the first steps in me losing my bullshit religious beliefs and abandoning faith for reason. YOU DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE! YOU REALLY DO! Keep up the blasphemy

Hi Jared, intrusion forgiven… (oops, is that overtly christian? intrusion excused then…)
I’m not sure if were like minded or not, you decide. Yes, I’m an atheist, but not necessarily an aggressive one. When asked what I believe in or if I’m christian or not, (yes, small ‘c’..), firstly, I want to know why I’m being asked. If its just for curiosity’s sake, I’ll answer. Seeing I’m opposed to the bible thumping dicks, I try not to be an “Origin of Species” thumper in return, but I will use it and others like it, when the need arises.
I have a varied group of friends, some atheist like me, some doubters, some a bit christian, some absurdly christian, some hindu, some muslim, some buddhist. I post stuff on my page occasionally about atheism, news articles that condemn catholic paedophile priests, muslim madness, kooky christian cults, etc. and of course, the only people that bite on those are the friends like me, the religious ones don’t like to be drawn into a debate.
I believe that while religious types become fully versed in the one book, and can quote passage after passage at me, I’m at liberty to read every book in the library, and expand my knowledge. I may not be able to quote from every book I’ve read, but I know how to read, research, learn and discover new things for myself and able to admit I’m wrong if I’m proven wrong. Actually, I don’t remember the last time I read a fiction novel, there’s just too much to know and learn from all those other library books. (I am speaking metaphorically, the amazon guy knows where I live..)
So, let me know if my passive anti-theism, atheism is what you’re looking for in a friend, and I’ll be happy to add you, but I don’t draw my friends into online battles over their beliefs. I guess essentially I consider myself a Bright. Also, I’m a bit of a political animal, and also consider myself a centre-left socialist.
Am I still acceptable?
Cheers, Fiona =)
Subject: New favorite site, looking to help
I recently came across your amazingly entertaining site and if I may, would like to offer some more ammunition for an argument you made. In the rant about Noah’s ark, you go into some detail about all mankind being descendants of Noah if the story were true, and that this does not explain why there is so much genetic diversity. What I would like to add is this: if the story is true and we are all descendants of Noah, the only logical explanation for diversity among humans is [pause for dramatic effect] evolution! Christianity’s story proving god’s love or whatever the hell its supposed to mean actually disproves the religion! I would love to see the reaction on their face if they read this haha.
Feel free to use this in any way, shape, or form with or without mentioning me if you so choose.
Keep up the good work!
