The Onion strikes again / "Atheism is liberating"

From The Onion : "Pedro Martinez Credits Success To Lucky Midget, Sun God, Magic Beads".

In an interview following his 200th career win Monday night, Mets pitcher Pedro Martinez said he never could have reached this milestone without the aid of his lucky midget, the Egyptian sun god Ra, and every person and thing who helped him along the way, including an enchanted necklace, former British prime minister Arthur Neville Chamberlain, and a talking whale who lives off the coast of his native Dominican Republic that only he can communicate with.

The Arizona Daily Star brings us a great editorial from Gilbert Shapiro : "Atheism is a liberating world view".

Atheists are continually amazed that Americans can reason with such clarity and critical thinking on most aspects of life except when it comes to God and religion.
God, faith, religion, and the supernatural are, in the atheist's world view, the causes of the delusional wishful thinking that has at best, wasted man's time and at worst, been responsible for his most awful behaviors.

I like the quote from the Arizona Daily Star. One of the reasons why I left Christianity is that I got tired of employing double standards when choosing what to believe. When I heard a story of someone who claimed that they had been kidnapped by aliens in a flying saucer, I disbelieved them due to lack of evidence; but I had no problem accepting the fact that the earth stood still for a day (as recorded in the Bible). I’ve actually written and article about it here.

All the best

It can be argued that theism is a crime against humanity.
