Blasphemy alert

A religious battle is taking place on the Internet, with two very different groups arguing over the existence of God.

It began in December when Brian Flemming, a 40-year-old filmmaker and playwright based in Los Angeles, started the Blasphemy Challenge, asking people to post videos on YouTube denying the existence of God.

In one video, for example, a teenage girl says, “I know that the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, God, the flying spaghetti monster, pink unicorns, all of these made-up entities do not exist.â€￾

I mean, yes, she's right about that spirit thing, unicorns and Jesus Christ - but how does she dare DENY THE OBVIOUS? Isn't she touched by His Noodly Appendage, as all of us are?

I was feeling that the playing field wasn't filled with its usual radicals!

We need that constant tension to make everything smooth.

The stripper factories are unisex.

Both male and female, but I have heard that the strippers of the same gender will be invisible to you.

I just went looking for one of the challengers to the blasphemy challenge, who assumes that only God can give you the ability to help people, when I found this guy's response.

Very cool. He almost makes me want to go to at least his church.

Check out some of the Raelian responses to it too. See an example here.

You don't mean to imply that such...interaction actually stopped for a time, do you?

This Is Not My Name wrote:how come the atheists get a design of the generally accepted model of an atom? This implies that all atheists believe strictly in science, but i find it hard to believe that all atheists believe in science. Someone should send a very formal letter to the government requesting the 'FSM-fish" be included. There are religions that aren't represented, right? As long as it actually protests something such a letter wouldn't be a bad thing. At the least the FSM logo should be available to those people out there with a sense of humor.



I take it you are speaking of Military Funeral plots?

If you are, and I pray to God you aren’t, that would mean instead of treating such places with respect and honor you would demean such burial grounds because you or some other Atheist has a grudge against religious symbolism? Is that fair to the families of those dearly departed to have their loved ones mocked in such a way?

huh... post was meant elsewhere (using firefox, must have clicked wrong tab... feel stupid now), not seriously suggesting using the FSM symbol, and i think there are religions that aren't represented. there are tons of religions, the list can't contain them all. last sentence was a joke. Not a grudge against religious symbolism either, just think the atheist symbol is a little odd, only fitting if you're an atheist and a scientist. you assumed way too much there, and this isn't the place to discuss it. If someone truly wanted an FSM symbol on their gravestone that's their choice. an odd choice to be sure, but still their choice.
