Often in discussions with believers, we hear, that atheists lack any morality (false), because without a god, there isn’t any absolute being that defines absolute morality (true). But of course, instead of simply pointing out (again and again) that the lack of an absolute moral does not mean that we cannot find good (but not absolute) morality systems of our own, we can try to see where this „absolute morality“ thing leads us…
Just a short thing I notice sometimes: It is quite easy to make jokes about religions – ridiculous easy, because religions are have many facets that are likely to provoke laughter when thinking about them, especially if you’re not a member of this specific religion. And I know many religious people who can laugh about their religion – not all of them are like Jorge of Burgos.
But, and that’s my point: I don’t know any really good jokes about atheists. Is it, because the only thing that atheists do is not to believe in god, which makes it hard to joke about them? Of course, we all know the lame jokes, that are just a variant of „and the atheist was wrong, god exists, bla bla bla“, but really creative ones? I don’t know any. But I would like to know. Honestly, give me good jokes about atheists and I’m the first one to tell them – to other atheists and believers alike. I don’t mind if someone laughs about me – and I also like to laugh about myself, just to remember myself, that I shouldn’t take anything – including myself – too seriously.
So, if you have good atheists jokes… Please, share them. Thanks.
Honestly, I really don’t remember when I registered this nick and this WordPress sub-domain. Other people could claim to have been drunk, but as I rarely drink, there isn’t a good chance for that. Well, looks like I’ll use this to comment on other blogs and perhaps write some random rants from time to time. If you want to know more about me: I’m an outspoken atheist, working in the software industry here in good ol‘ germany (ok, germany at least, which is, as nobody can deny, quite old… Two out of three ain’t that bad). Expect to hear from me about computer, software and atheist topics. Of course, I have other hobbies, too, but I think that
nobody wants to hear stories about tortured puppies these don’t matter at the moment.
