Sac and the Strawman Debate

ATTN Sacerdotus… Rosa Rubicondior (who reveals your long term dishonesty HERE) never agreed to your Easter 2015 debate changes. This is a fact. What happened was you never agreed to Rosa’s terms and then set up a STRAWMAN DEBATE, which was your venue and rules, 100% without Rosa’s agreement.  You then promoted this event as agreed upon by both parties. A CLEAR LIE.  Obviously you were afraid to face Rosa and, like a child, had to manufacture the only debate in which you could ever defeat her… a fake one.  Pure cowardice.

As anyone can review here around 2/3 of the way down the thread, Rosa issued a formal debate offer with FULL DETAILS and you immediately changed the venue WITHOUT Rosa’s agreement.  You also never agreed to the rest of her parameters, rules or content.  You, like a demanding 4 year old, insisted that Rosa HAD accomodated you, even making a self narrated video STATING THAT SHE AGREED!?  The video “evidence” never shows Rosa’s agreement despite you claiming it does…  An OUTRIGHT LIE.

So you posted that the debate was arranged and agreed upon and you predicted that Rosa would back out.  BACK OUT OF WHAT you lying turd?  She never agreed to your FAKE & DISHONESTLY arranged changes or venue.  Now that Easter had come and gone you victoriously post claims that Rosa has run away from debate again, when all you’ve done is create a type of STRAWMAN DEBATE!  You pretended that YOUR venue and rules for debate were actually what was taking place. Your dishonesty and despicable behavior, just to make some folks believe that you are winning or are an intellectial, is absolutely mind blowing!

Clearly you are not one to be trusted with things that require integrity. Its a good thing that there are people like Rosa who challenge such childishly dishonest, religious folks as yourself.

*For anyone wanting details of Sac’s recent antics I suggest or if you want to see warnings about Sac:

Religious Rhymes

On 9/11 we feel our loss
As directed by a mythical boss
So dont put dogma over law
It leads to what we saw
Just leave your hate on the cross

Kim Davis is a hero today
For hating every last gay
& denying their right to wed
Despite what the law said
She is our queen of bigotry I say

How I hate evolution
Its ungodly intellectual pollution
It refutes my bible
Like blasphemous libel
So spreading lies is my solution

Ms. @TamiHoshiyama the deceiver
Says Evolution is false, dont believe her
It is all but a fact
Proven & entact
Try science, myth believer

The Theory of Evolution
An insightful scientific revolution
It explains change over time
The eloquence is sublime
A verified & true notion

Is God my salvation
Or is there only damnation?
Who checked if its true?
Who promised that we knew?
It could be a monster & his deception!

If heaven & hell are real
Then God is the real deal
He commands all the torture
Making you more sure
That its before a monster you kneel

God is cruel
God is just a tool
God is unflawed
God is fraud
God is conviction
God is fiction
God is sensation
God is imagination

Glory to God in the highest
Just agree so he doesnt fry us
Praise His holy name
& play his gruesome game
As always God-fearing equals pious

I am a Christian
& I have a mission
To tell you I’ll be laughing always
As you’re burning in hell’s hallways
Such is our loving tradition

Allah gives me the power
To fly into a tower
And praises my devotion
To kill with an explosion
So every last infidel will cower

God is my friend
Friends ’til the end
As long as I worship & kneel
Because thats his perfect deal
How long is forever again?

On sunday Im fully devout
On monday my sin is all washed out
Tuesday I sin like a teen
By Sunday Im a sin-aholic & mean
Regards, The Devout

I’m finished with Gods threats
He’s just a myth I’ll bet
Tired of his pushy followers
Sick of the BS swallowers
Its all a false safety net

If your throwing arm needs honing
Working on Sunday is a stoning
So find a neighbor raking
& end his God forsaking
Hey, no need for atoning!

Oh How do I love
Pissing on God above
By working on a Sunday
We make it a fun day
Now that theres no stoning to speak of.

I hate the evidentially informed
Because conformed is the norm
& our ignorance is bliss
So I pray you don’t miss
The joy of the uninformed

I worship a guy named Jesus
He sorta died just to save us
But it was always just him
Who threatened torture for sin
Now he just enslaves us.

God once was so great
Soley in a tyrannical state
Overkilling was his thing
Slavery &Rape made him sing
Yet you love him, thats stupid mate

Jesus saved you, yes Gods son
But hes the guy we get saved from!
If you reject his love
He fries you from above
So kneel forever, how FUN!

I lie in Jesus’ name
My parents do the same
Yes, the bible’s a tough sell
So we lie to avoid his hell
Yes, shame is the name of the game.

We lie for Jesus & so should you.
Tell me what else we can do.
The dogma is so crazy
And we are too lazy
To bother checking if its true.

Praise his glorious name forever
A relationship you fear to sever
Get on your knees
Stay there if you pleaz
Unless torture sounds any better

Is the Lords word so pure?
It says he offers the cure
But the illness was his trick
To make you think youre sick
And thats cruel for sure

Jesus is my Lord and savior
Which justifies my behavior
And gives me an eternal pass
To act like an ignorant ass
And your superior neighbor.

The Bible is the evidence
That God lacks moral sense
Slavery was always wrong
& He killed everyone all along
Which makes it moral nonsense!

Islam is a religion of peace
Like a hive of sleeping bees
So accept Sharia Law today
Or Jihad will be the way
To force you to your knees.

My religion deserves your respect
Its where the lord & us connect
Evidence isnt needed
If your rights arent heeded
So do what we expect!

God is truly out there
All powerful & everywhere
He allows rape & starvation
And disease in every nation
So love him for how he cares.

Jesus he loves you,
Though yet unseen
But hates you he does,
He’s really quite mean…
(Finish with your tweet)

The ISIS love to start trouble
Murderous idiots in a bubble
“Join us or die”
A cowardly battle cry
With no brains so their guns are double

My bible says women be silent
& against gays be violent
Disobedient children be slain
Atheists killed in His name
Such peace is heaven sent

My bible has no flaws
All correct & perfect laws
We dont understand just how
But Gods errors are right even now
Why? Just because.

God is not a petulant child
He is wise, loving & mild
Unless you read my bible
Where He murders every rival
& directs others to be reviled

Do you know of Sacerdufus?
He lies, threatens & abuses us
He hates atheists & gays
& facts that reveal his ways
But liars lie, what a puss

Where is Ken Ham today?
He took his pet dino to play!
He ignored the science guy
The ark plan went awry
Then prayed for another way to pay

Scathing Atheist from the fringe
A Podcast that makes you cringe
The diatribe is like candy
& points all too handy
When theists need a singe

You tell me I need God today
But there is no god in any way
He is your pretending
Of a magical happy ending
& NO I dont respect what you say

How’s the Bible your moral guide
With slavery & murder inside?
You refuse to budge
Saying humans cant judge
Yet YOU know He’s right?!

I ask how God is real
You give a fallacious spiel
How mysteries prove god
& Im a damned and foolish clod
To not take your mythical deal

157 died in that town
When the jet liner came down
So its a miracle I guess
That 1 child survived the mess
What a blessing we have found!

Its time to set things straight
God’s a myth& prophecies are fake
Miracles are not divine
Holy books arent sublime
Drop it for goodness sake

God hates gays
God hates gays’ ways
God hates gay styles
God hates gay smiles
God must be gay I say

An open path is divine
A blocked path is also divine
An answered prayer is a blessing
No answer is also a blessing
Make up your damn mind!

Oh how much do I laugh
At the faithfuls’ holy path
With the forbidden things they do
& the hate they do spew
Just pretending away the wrath

Time to share God’s to do list
Its scary, here’s the gist
Create logical thinkers
Tell them theyre stinkers
& Torture them with an iron fist

A new vow from God
Hes decided to spare the rod
& finally do all your bidding
Oh sorry, Im just kidding
Hes still just a fictional fraud

I know an angel named Lucky
His boss was divinely sucky
So God put him down
And said don’t come around
Until a Ham builds an ark in Kentucky

Beware the tongue of the faith-ridden
Equality & reason they keep hidden
All for the chance
Of a divine bro-mance
With a God equally smitten

Oh Manuel de Dios Agosto the fraud
A faith-ridden liar before God
A coward who hates& hides
A leech who coattail rides
Sacerdufus the clod

Did I steer my son from believing?
By sharing all the crazy bible reading?
Well hell yes
I did my best
And such insanity bears repeating!

@Noah_Lugeons is my hero I’d say
Maybe, at least on Thursday
We hit the trenches
While he clears the benches
No one goes unscathed that day!

Why do atheists debate?
So no religion decides our fate
So no theocracy rules
So gods stay out of schools
So our world is safe to navigate

Jesus died for you
Then He rose for you
Then He prepared Hell for you
Then He burned whoever didn’t bow like you.
Now He owns you, bitch.

Dr Dawkins, happy day of your birth!
Its impossible to sum up your worth
Invaluable to our future
Humanity you nurture
Thanks friend ~Earth

Read the bible to the letter
Context makes it all better
God loves through rape & genocide
Slavery, stoning & infanticide
A divine go getter

What I wouldn’t do for God
I’d hate gays & incite a mob
Deny rights or start wars
Against all that God abhors!
All for him, my heavenly job!

Non-believers will burn in hell
It makes me giddy, can’t you tell?
We Christians will laugh
And applaude god’s wrath
From our divine citadel

Will Indiana be blessed
Or is God still stressed?
He wants all of Leviticus!
Enact adultery & blasphemy deaths!
Indiana, the half-assed mess

Wake up Kim Davis
Your hate won’t save us
Putting bigotry before the people
Doesn’t glorify your sheeple
It just vilifies your hateful myth

Sacerdufus gave in today
“No more lies” he did say
No more theats or libel
No more morality of the bible
Now thats a joke, April Fools Day!

So Jesus got nailed to sticks
He finally ran out of tricks
He had fooled a few
& found a loyal crew
But he couldn’t get out of that fix

I could go to church today
I could pretend to pray
I could feign straightness
I could credit God’s greatness
But fuck you, let me be gay!

Keep your god out of our way
Godly rules dont fit today
Keep them out of the fight
Instead lets do whats right
Until proven, its just hearsay

Today Jesus is still dead
Not like the myth in your head
A man died on the cross
For breaking blasphemy laws
Or at least the Fairy tale said

No need to love it or fear
Your god myth isnt here
Like all the rest
He failed every test
So just relax and have a beer

Regarding the voice in your head
Does it mean Jesus isnt dead?
Or is it your inner voice
Helping you make a choice
To dress in blue or red?

How did Jesus’ death back then
Empower his omnipotent Dad again?
God wouldn’t need a tool
To change his own rule
He would edit & hit send

Supposedly, Jesus is risen
But evidence there isn’t
The bible is only a story
Grossly Immoral & gory
& not one witness of Jesus ever living

To lie addict Sac-o
Who truly is a whacko
You’re dishonest every day
We cant believe what you say
Lying is your drug, beat it crack ho

I dissed Jesus, yes I did
I pissed in his cheerios & never hid
I mangled his name
I strangled his fame
I pissed & never even lifted the lid

In His torture, He unifies
In His slavery, He guides
In His bigotry, He hugs
In His slaughter, He loves
In His morality, He terrifies

I deny your god as being real
No myth has less appeal
Slavery, stoning, torture
& Genocidal hate on his brochure
What a crazy stupid deal!

If I die & God is there
I’d ask why he doesn’t care
Then sneak a massive kick
To His nuts & tiny prick
Leaving his holy junk beyond repair

As a Christian I do act
On behalf of God’s contract
I’ll bake nothing for a gay
But YES for adulters every day
Im a hypocrite, thats a fact!

Jesus speaks in my head
Nothing audible ever said
He dictates who all to hate
Tells me of your hellish fate
& he loves you ’til youre dead

Atheists are evil people
Trying to sway God’s sheeple
Oppressing my stagnant mind
With reason & being kind
So I just run for the steeple

He loves you no matter what
Unless youre an atheist twat
Or gay, a liar or you murder
Or a woman or evil plotter
Yes, He loves you somewhat

Faith convinces the sheep
Faith kills in the street
Faith chops your genitals
Faith is acting mental
Faith puts all reason in the back seat

I am God you turd
Follow my crazy word
In evil, I am good, you see?
So kneel & always worship me
Do I love you? Thats laughable. How absurd.

* When is…
A monster not a monster,
A tyrant not a tyrant
Evil not evil
A myth not a myth
Bigotry not bigotry
& Hate not hate?
…in church.

If God IS omnipotence
Then explain his impotence
If God is benevolence
Then how the malevolence?
If God loves fully, then why indifference?

Another sunrise, a green traffic light
…praise God!
Bigots fighting gay rights
…praise God!
My hate, my ignorance
…praise God!

How much faith atheists hide
Always completely denied
That beauty is simply natural
& design is accidental
Or so I lie, for catholic pride

Atheism is the justified position
Needing only 1 condition
With no evidence to perceive
There’s No reason to believe.
An honest cognition

Why do you call it a fallacy?
Creation is clearly reality
God made the rocks & grass
& even your atheist ass
No need for evidence. Just see!

Sacerdotus Pwned Himself

White flag SacRecently The infamous Sacerdotus / @SCDTVS, supposedly fooled the lot of us.  His mouthpiece account @CatholicGadfly (well evidenced and witnessed to be Sac as documented here) had sent an email via an AOL account to  who extracted Gadfly’s IP address.  The IP resolved to The Bronx, NY (and other locales in NY depending on which tool you use to check it) while Gadfly has insisted he is in Arizona time and again.  At first Gadfly denied that the IP was valid and then stated that emails from his phone often shows IPs from all over the country.. somehow.  Once realizing how stupid his cover story was he decided to reveal that his Idol @SCDTVS has tricked/ fooled us in some mysterious and undisclosed way.  The great Sac has (somehow) fed us atheists an IP which shows as various locations in the Bronx and Manhattan and is therefore false.  Its not a bad or tricky IP, but rather the online tools resolve them differently (most in the Bronx), while all still in the same area.

Of course this would mean that Sac PURPOSELY fed us an IP which placed Gadfly right where Sac’s own IPs had been originating for quite some time, the Bronx, NY.  So he PURPOSELY made sure we had an IP that would verify, YES VERIFY what everyone has concluded and evidenced over time; that Gadfly is in fact run by @SCDTVS.  So “Sac fooled you all” is actually saying “Sac has intentionally made it LOOK like he has been lying to everyone all this time, but the joke is on you all because he (stupidly) just wanted you to think that.”   Yes, the infamous liar has been pwned by his own stupid… again.

Whether he claims he worked some tech magic or prayed to create a funny IP from afar… or that he went to the Bronx (from Boston) and emailed Ellif with Gaddy’s email account, (to explain the IP’s origin)… Gaddy is saying that SAC stupidly and intentionally validated all current evidence regarding his ongoing, long term deceptions… to fool us.  Of course the far simpler reason for Gaddy’s IP being in the Bronx is that he IS Sacerdotus / @scdtvs, as all the evidence and the witnesses reveal and know. Sac pwned himself good.

If that wasn’t stupid enough, Sac’s @studiousAtheist twitter & blog (which sac denies is his) goes out of its way to ALSO claim that Sac has fooled everyone.  If that’s not holding up an “I’m Sac too” flag, I don’t know what is.

UPDATE (hours later): Gadfly in an attempt to show he can appear to be in the UK via an IP address in an email had emailed Ellif again.  Ellif quickly discerned his IP change was due to using a server host company (here), which was not how the original Bronx email was presented via email.  It seems MORE LIES is the fix for failed lies in Sac’s book.

Challenging @CatholicGadfly to a Debate

*See status updates below*

On 11/29/14, I am hereby challenging the twitter user @CatholicGadfly (Jeff T. Follon) to a debate. It will be held on his chosen public location, under his rules. I will choose one of his supplied 3 preferred debate topics. This gives Jeff the distinct advantage.

However, to first “clear the air” each debater’s first 2 turns (before Jeff’s debate rules officially take effect) will be set aside for any apologies regarding personal misbehaviors during our past online interactions, specifically between Jeff and myself.

The only acceptable method for @CatholicGadfly to accept or reject this debate, is for him to post a video of himself speaking directly to the camera, with his face well lit and unobscurred, saying “I Jeff T. Follon, aka @CatholicGadfly, accept (or do not accept) the debate offer by Artie aka @freeatheism“. Jeff must also show a valid government issue photo ID, clearly to the camera, to verify he is indeed Jeff responding to the debate offer. Jeff may cover up his address and ID number, but the ID must otherwise be unobscured to verify it as a valid ID. Jeff must then post (and leave posted) the video link on twitter, mentioning @freeatheism in the tweet. No other means of communication or media, beyond the above described process, will be considered a valid response to this offer, because only the above method addresses this particular debate offer.  Any excuses given for not responding or for not responding appropriately will only be rejected and interpreted as indicated below.

Failing to accept or not accept the debate (and civilly clearing the air) precisely in the above manner will be interpretted as Jeff personally indicating:
1. that he is scared to debate me on his own venue.
2. that he is running from a debate where he would clearly hold the advantage.
3. that he is unwilling to be civil enough to even hear (or offer any) apologies regarding past behavior.

*Timeline & Disclaimer: At this time the offer stands until the end of 2014. Any method by which I choose to commuicate this offer to @CatholicGadfly is to be considered valid and any excuses or counter offers by @CatholicGadfly will not be considered and will be referred back to the above 3 interpretations. I reserve the right to rescind this offer at any time for any reason. Since I made the offer, any reason I give for altering or rescinding the offer is the official reason and no other explanation need be made or may be concluded.

*If @SCDTVS acknowledges the offer exists, it will be hence forth known that @CatholicGadfly knows of the debate due to clear evidence that @SCDTVS & @CatholicGadfly are the same person:


When Should Christians Authenticate Commands From God?

bookAll Christians pick out their own specific passages from the bible which they believe God expects them to follow.
Typically, all the validation they need for believing these verses is faith based subjective feelings, mysteries, coincidence and a like-minded community.  Now consider a (hypothetical) newly given command from God which states “You must stone your unruly child to death. ~God”.  Why wouldn’t you do it?  Surely, you would need to KNOW that God actually commanded it, right?


Even devout Christians would demand verifiable authentication, due to the obvious, critical consequences for acquiescing to such an unthinkable task.  Suddenly, when it counts, faith is revealed as a worthless method for discerning truth, even though it was perfectly adequate just 5 minutes ago for things like denying gay rights and discrimination.  What would it take to convince you that this new command is in fact from God and that its not just some deception or fiction?  Let’s ponder the possibilities.

BW-message-from-GodClearly, finding a note directed  to you with that message on it could easily be from a variety of sources and wouldn’t be sufficient to take such action.  What if the message appeared on the paper while you were looking at it, with sounds of angels all around?  I dare say that intelligent people would still doubt its authenticity.  They might recall some silly skeptic’s argument like “Why couldn’t it be a mental illness, or aliens, or a dream, or maybe an evil being posing as your God?”  Since the consequences of  taking this action would directly affect you (and potentially be a deception), it would be foolish to act before verifying the message’s origin, right?  Right, so what would convince you that the message MUST be from God?

Any scenario I can think of doesn’t dismiss the possibility that the message could still be from a powerful and undiscovered deceiver.  A sufficiently powerful evil being could fool our senses all day long, such that we could never know its real identity or true intentions.  Indeed it seems obvious that this new command from God could never be sufficiently verified and that simply pretending to know on faith “Yes, this is from God” is utterly reckless.

Let’s suppose your current beliefs are on the line now and God has come to Earth to gather his followers.  This embodiment of God looks sounds and miracles people exactly like you have always imagined.  Further, he renews his ancient commands to proceed with the stoning of nonbelievers, adulterers, unruly children and gays. Out of thin air this God, your child and a pile of stones appears before you.  He instructs you to stone your unruly Stacked Rocks - for Stepping Stone post - Karlene Jacobsen - Joy's blog post - NOV 20child to death.  Yes, you know full well that your God might do exactly this, per his word, so what is stopping you?
Would you start stoning your daughter just in case this really is God? … and just maybe humans can’t comprehend how this action is actually moral or fair? … or would you question this God’s motives, morality and identity?  I can’t imagine that even a single loving parent would do the deed and many would probably stone this “god” if he then tried to harm their child.  Further, this resistance would happen WITH God standing before you, becau
se you know better than to carry out this act.  Oddly, no evidence or explanation could ever be enough to follow through on this new command, yet in reality you’ve already bought into an equally horrible,  contradictory, unverified message, merely written on paper… yes, the Bible.  How silly is that?

The bible certainly affects your life and others lives around you,  so why haven’t you made it a point to authenticate those supposed words from God?  The commands you follow may be less harmful to you than the denoted stoning,  but you could still be 100% deceived.

Thanks for reading

Ideas, Methods & Purpose for Atheist Paper Route

Have you heard about the Atheist Paper Route campaign We are assembling a collection of atheist pamphlets and fliers while promoting various methods & purposes regarding their use & distribution.  If you have ideas or content contact us here.  For suggestions on what content to create, click here.ATHEIST paper route script blank narrow

Our online Atheistic world is logical, formidable and far reaching, but the average theist avoids or misses our efforts.  Its time to stick it to ‘em in the real world!  Literally, lets celebrate and praise atheism on paper (or other related media) and place our words before the eyes of the ignorant. (*** See Bottom)  Let’s find clever ways and locations to convey a message of our pride, freedoms, facts, arguments and celebrated community.  Let’s tell those potential or hiding Atheists that they’re not alone!  Hopefully your mind is racing with possibilities…  (Go HERE for Provided Printable Content)   or make your own:

Undercover Atheist Flier

What form they can take?  Anything you can imagine!

  • Fliers of all shapes and sizes
  • Post it notes
  • Simple folded Booklets or cards
  • Hang tags and ornaments
  • Book marks or magazine inserts
  • Bright colored stickers or slyly hidden clear labels
  • Business cards leading to specially designed web sites
  • Discover-able notes
  • Child type drawings…  be creative!
  • An entire brilliant, printed blog post
  • A letter to public figures and leaders  (mailing campaign per @crispysea)

What should they say?  Anything you like really.

  • Its hard to beat staying positive and celebratory to drive the idea of a desirable Atheistic community.
  • I do however provide the messages in disguise here.  “Theistic” handouts citing uncomfortable dogma.
  • Your online social site contact info > for seeking skeptics on the fence or curious/ angry theists.
  • Certainly counter the popular lies about atheists.
  • Personally I enjoy pointing out atheist freedoms and benefits.
  • Suggest why the atheist is justified and Invite theists to become atheists.
  • I would avoid outright insults… it would only confirm what they’ve heard.

Why would we impose like this?  There are many good reasons to start disturbing people with their very own absurd beliefs or endearing them with ideas of Atheistic freedoms, community and celebration.

  • Because we can do it anonymously… and we’re not doing it now!
  • Its a matter of balance in everyday life.  Believers need to be reminded of their impositions upon others.
  • Their shit is everywhere! Its time to get tactical and push back.
  • It could make people think, come seek out Atheistic support & change lives for the better.

Who should be our “readers”?  Imagine all the indoctrinated people who need a 1st dose of Reality!

  • In the closet Atheists who NEED friends and community!  Help them find your and/ or atheist communities.
  • A Bible illiterate, happy christian teenager who happens upon a ‘Perfect Word of God‘ booklet, revealing God’s truly immoral commands and how atheists are free from such nonsense.
  •  The driver of a car sporting a crucifix on the mirror… finding a windshield flier, referring to the good news of atheism!
  • The shoppers at the market or store could read about how saving their worldly goods, keeps them from heaven, but atheists live their life now!
  • The patrons of Bigoted, theistic establishments might find some Atheist celebration fliers in the bathroom stalls.

Where should we start placing them?  Shift some of your tactical thinking to your community by considering all places where theistic minds feel safe in their ignorance.

Collage horiz copy

  • Think one establishment over from your destination and place a few clear sticker labels, reminding of Atheist Community Pride!
  • Send via your postal service to government officials!   (mass mailing campaign per @crispysea)
  • Gas pumps could use some one liner atheist quotes on mini post-it notes!  (remember they have cameras)
  • Libraries always need creative bookmarks in the religious section.
  • Seafood places (lev 11) and known Bigoted establishments deserve consideration.
  • Christian stores would enjoy some (slyly placed) professional standing quote cards to supplement their idols
  • Waiting rooms with magazines in need of skeptical bookmarks.
  • School / gym lockers have convenient slots like suggestion boxes… give suggestions.

How are we going to get them to read the items?  There need not be billboards or massive investments, just printers, paper, clever ideas and willing Atheists.  It has a lot to do with where they are discovered.

  • My favorite: Grab some free religious fliers, modify them with clever argument labels/stickers and re-place them!
  • Inspiring atheist quotes could reach the ignorant with a sticker on a shopping cart.
  • ‘Old Bible for sale’ fliers with YOUR email or web site… get them to go online and inquire.
  • ‘Offering Insights about God’ business cards with a reasons to be skeptical listed.
  • A folded piece of fake paper money with a note on the inside Inviting them to Atheism.
  • A handmade bible quote book that starts gloriously and ends with skepticism and atheism.
  • Notes displayed in a food store seafood section, noting shellfish and the word of god, Lev 11.
  • Found child type drawings, depicting a biblical event with “My Daddy could never be as mean and angry as god, He’s an atheist”

When should all this happen?  Start now! Get some simple ideas, make a collection, start testing your creativity and most importantly, CARRY THEM WITH YOU!  Opportunities are everywhere.  (Go HERE for Provided Printable Content)

*** Keep in mind I would certainly suggest being as respectful as possible, but be as daring as your convictions dictate.  Also, BE SAFE and don’t put yourself at risk.  There are many safe, clever, and /or legitimate ways to accomplish this.

Please, if you like, report back to or @freeAtheism on twitter, with your created fliers and pics of your efforts, so any results and ideas can be shared!

What is the single most important question you pose to believers to get them to think?

Below is a collection of twitter responses to the question: “What is the single most important question you pose to believers to get them to think?”   The idea here is to spread around some great thinking, so we might all be more effective in our interactions.  There’s quite a variety, from many insightful freethinkers and even some popular favorites.  Hope it helps!   (Alternately, here’s an off sight link to 50 tough questions for theists…  Here is another: 40 questions for Christians. )   

    Please keep in mind that many responses are situational, or refer to the beginning of thought provoking conversations and are not stand alone challenges, but rather open the door to thinking.

  1. “@ascotsmanabroad: My favorite is ‘taking into account there is equal evidence for each of the claimed gods,why do you disbelieve any of them?‘”
  2. @CaptnAtheist: Why do YOU need a god to be happy?
  3. “@auldshaman: It’s so situational that I’m having difficulty choosing one. Probably just, “What proof do you offer that your god exists?“”
  4. “@Nick_OvO: Usually, “If you say the universe, or anything else, can’t come from nowhere, why can your god?” Then they run in circles.
  5. “@lyonsnyc: What makes you [the believer] believe that you have an ethereal entity in you that you call a “soul”? What is your evidence?”
  6. “@Erasmus_san: god if omnipotent, why powerless? If omnipresent, why absent? If benevolent, why suffering? If sciences are correct, why deceitful?
  7. “@WondieBee: Why do you need a god to have morals?
  8. “@BiebFresh2Death:  I like to propose a scenerio. If you or a loved one became very very ill, would you rather have millions of people all over the world praying for you or would you rather have a few atheist doctors and nurses at you side prescribing you modern medicine designed by some atheist scientists? I realize you would probably like to have both, but if you could only choose 1, which would you choose?
  9. “@dyrbert: I prefer a Socratic series of questions. There isn’t a silver bullet question that doesn’t get people to defensive to think.
  10. “@MrJesusNoHere: if ur doctor told u that u have cancer without examining u or performing any tests,will you believe him n just accept his word?
  11. “@mattrohrbacher: Why is the thought of no God or creator so scary?
  12. “@michael27777: There is just as much evidence for the existence of Bigfoot as there is for ur God. Why do you believe in one & not the other?”
  13. “@DohMartel: when one insist that we atheist prove there is no god, I ask them to: “Prove that you haven’t killed or raped anyone“.”
  14. “@c_morgon: Which god?”
  15. “@mxoom: I ask them to think about the stars, the speed of light, and how many years it took for that light to reach us. #freeatheism
  16. “@dheidman: I ask them how they can believe the Bible is the literal word of God when we know its been heavily edited”
  17. “@DerekDtmangus:  How are you so sure of something no living person could possibly know?(heaven,hell,afterlife…)
  18. “@Kevcon66: If God ‘always was’ and the Universe is 6k yrs old (or even 14 billion) what the fuck was he waiting for!”
  19. “@adamhaztweetz: Can you really empathize with nonbelievers? Do you personally/comprehensively understand our perspective or do you presume to?
  20. “@netcarper: How much prayer would it take to make an amputees limb grow back?”
  21. “@DennySmith45: When I am asked by them if I believe in God, I ask them, “Which one?””
  22. “@SamyHiddles: Books of gods proof as much as comic books, what is the real proof that god exists?”
  23. “@MyOpenMind101: I ask them what do they believe in and why (define #god) . Many are not sure of either the what or why. #atheism
  24. “@txtravlr:  Which god are you going to defend?”
  25. “@PumaBare: I’ve started asking about the all-knowing, all-seeing, it makes his judgements redundant.
  26. “@bunysrule: I ask: “Without using “faith” or “the bible” as answers, please show PROOF of your gods existence.”
  27. “@Harryfatback: @FreeAtheism what would it take for you to stop believing?
  28. “@HaleyMHooligan: point out how selfish their logic is. It does make YOU feel better; someone who suffers is in a better place. EGO = #Religion
  29. “@RestroomWarrior:  Why is Jesus so similar to Mithra, Horus, Krishna and all the other gods man created before yours?”
  30. “@ElRazur:  My question are along the lines of ‘Why do you believe what you believe’ and then build up from there to get them to think.”
  31. “@DeepSouthAthy: R you willing 2 die, right here, right now, for your faith w/o at least examining why those of other faiths are just as sure?
  32. “@Damn_Street: @FreeAtheism Why would an omniscient, omnipotent, merciful god create people just to eternally damn them for not worshipping him?”
  33. “@shelahclark: if god is real, omnipotent and all knowing then why does he allow crimes committed in his name, why are they not struck down?
  34. “@AnnellW61: why does god allow innocent people to suffer while the evil roam free?”
  35. “@coach_nam23: If god knew beforehand, being omniscient, what man would do (disobey etc) before creation, why go ahead & create him?
  36. “@coach_nam23: and also if god is all knowing and omnipotent, why does he need us to pray & tell him what to do? Lack of motivation? #Atheism”
  37. “@rubiskit: If you have such trouble with the idea of “something from nothing”, how do you explain the origin of god?
  38. “@UnicornOnMoon: why would I want to go to heaven?

  40. “@MWAtheist:  If your faith is correct ,please explain how Cain and Able populated the earth
  41. “@RussellTpot: @FreeAtheism Why are there so many religions? It’s a fact that billions of people can be convinced of something that isn’t true. #atheism
  42. “@TheAwakenedCog:  If God didn’t want Adam and Eve to eat the fruit, then why did he put the tree of knowledge right at their easy reach?
  43. “@suckedelic:  if god has a master plan, why do we have a free will, &what does praying do besides ask for something if his mind is made up?
  44. “@sinan_810: @FreeAtheism Why the excess of violence from the disagreements of faiths?
  45. “@FThinkF: @FreeAtheism I always liked “So you really believe that man walked with dinosaurs?“”
  46. “@PhyllisCopeland: My favorite is: How could Adam & Eve hide in the garden? Wouldn’t omniscient God *know* where they were??”
  47. “@DonnaMatryx: why did he expect them (Adam/Eve in Eden) to understand it was wrong when he didn’t impart knowledge of right and wrong?
  48. “@TX200hc: Why does your all powerful all seeing god need you a mere mortal to tell me he/she exists?”
  49. “@stevep44: I ask why they believe what they do.
  50. “@FreeAtheism: How do you know you aren’t being totally deceived & manipulated by a powerful, evil being?
  51. “@TeriInk: why would an omniscient, loving God allow a person that he knows will end up tortured for all eternity to even be born at all?
  52. “@TheAtheistSpark: I’d point out to them just how shaky their belief is. There are, what? 3000+ claimed gods? How can they be 100% sure that they’ve got the right one? And if they don’t, is it worth wasting their life devoted to it for?
  53. “@BarRebecca: for me it is: you were there? hallelujah
  54. “@GodFreeWorld: I don’t have a clear one & I doubt they often do. In my mind, it is “why do you believe in something that is unfalsifiable?”.”
  55. “@mrkbhmstcsm: Why are children born disabled?
  56. “@KevHegarty:  “Why do you identify as _________ (insert specific religion/sect of religion)?” Usually starts a good convo.”
  57. “@UnicornDiety: Why did they choose their particular religion, and what would they have done if born around the world?
  58. @ICanBeWrong: What makes you so sure your religion is right and all other religions that have ever been followed have been wrong?
  59. “@socialistkev: How about,”What did your kids think before you told them about your #God?”
  60. “@hijodeganas: if god is truly omnipotent why didn’t he create a world with free will AND without suffering?”
  61. “@buffsblg: how would your everyday life be different if you didn’t believe?
  62. “@UncouthAtheist: you believe your #god is all loving? Then why does he allow millions of kids to be abused and starve to death?”
  63. “@burpthekitten: “How is there free will in heaven, but no one can sin?”- and “If it’s possible for God to create that set-up in Heaven, WHY NOT ON EARTH?”
  64. “@AtheistBlobfish: why is the ‘perfect word of god’ so open to interpretation.
  65. “@J_indetroit: (Why is there) no correlation between suffering & justice, belief & goodness, belief & suffering. No pattern of justice”?
  66. “@NopeNotThisTime: Why would an all-loving god create a place like hell?
  67. “@OldRifleman: I like to ask how they arrived at the conclusion that the universe was created or designed.No answers yet.
  68. “@mikecannytalk: i’ve asked with no reply, why would god commit adultery in order to have an illegitimate son & why was Mary not stoned to death?” …god breaks his own 7th commandment & Deut23:2 “No one born of a forbidden union may enter the assembly of the Lord.
  69. “@notcreative388: MT“@FreeAtheism:What’s the most important question you pose to believers to get them to think? #Atheism #Atheist” Why do you believe that?
  70. “@Raineboughs: Is that possible in one question? Ok. “If god made us, then who made god”?! I’m still waiting for an answer.”
  71. “@AbhilashGM: Why did you choose that religion? Just the idea that belief could be a CHOICE causes people to pause and think.
  72. “@BibleReloaded: @FreeAtheism Great Question. I ask: If the person you loved most in life goes to Hell, is it still Heaven when you get there?” … It creates a TON of cognitive dissonance and you can see them trying to reconcile it. It’s very interesting, and not abrasive”
  73. “@questions_faith: ok…I know it sounds odd but I love the answers I get “How could Lucifer sin, if sin wasnt already present, when he chose to…. sin?”.”
  74. “@baristaman: If Adam & Eve had no prior knowledge of right and wrong how could they know that eating from the Tree of Knowledge was wrong?”
  75. “@MamaAtheist: What would it take for you not to believe? …And questioning faith. What would you do for god? Would you kill all your friends for god?”… Like that to question the delusion of faith.
  76. “@GSpellchecker: @FreeAtheism “How is your description of God distinguishable from non-existent?” I usually ask that when ‘timeless, uncaused etc’ is used.
  77. “@baristaman: If Jesus was God, how could he have “died” on the cross? Also: How is it a sacrifice if he knew he’d be resurrected in 3 days?”
  78. “@think1staboutit: Quickest and simplest has been “How do you know?” and continue to ask. It all eventually boils down to ‘faith'”
  79. “@MrOzAtheist: @FreeAtheism Why are you not a [other religion]? So for a Christian, asking why they’re not Hindu or Muslim etc.
  80. “@CordieMendoza: Why is your God the one true God?”
  81. “@AtheistMel: @FreeAtheism I usually ask them how free will can exist if an all-knowing being created me and knows my ultimate fate.”… But TBH, that goes over a lot of their heads, so my fall back is, why did god create satan if he knew he would cause us to sin?
  82. “@kitsonde:  I always think this says it all.
  83. “@BlaspheMissy: I point out all the rape, torture, slavery & murder and ask if those things are ok. That is, if they even knew :/
  84. “@VoloDiscere: How do you know (what they’re claiming to know)?”
  85. “@adrianbriggs: @FreeAtheism If you’d been born into a different religion do you really think you’d be an adherent of your present religion?
  86. “@francosoup: 1) Explain how god gives you free will, but threatens you with eternal hell fire when you freely choose not to worship him. 2) How can you rationalise the existence of an omnipotent god that can alleviate suffering like paediatric cancer, but doesn’t?
  87. “@Im_Atheist: If God asks you to “Take your son, your only son, whom you love” and “sacrifice him”. Would you? So far no one has said yes.
  88. “@_lungfish: What got me when I was a Xian was the question “is the traditional history of Christianity presented by the church verifiable?”

  91. “@mokumz: if their is a god, isn’t the bible a little amateur ?”
  92. “@Yankeefan1972: If humans HAD to be created (ID), then who/what created god? #logic”
  93. “@askegg: @FreeAtheism Good question. Perhaps pointing out the Bible is not evidence, it’s the claim.
  94. “@perth_atheist: Hmm. Perhaps it’s: Why are you xian/Muslim/etc?
  95. “@Logic_Rocks: I would ask, “Are you aware that you are believing hearsay, unconditionally. None of these myths have any verification.
  96. “@StacySkipper: Ask them if they look at their watch during church. If they can’t tolerate an hour of god….how will they endure eternity.
  97. “@DrewJPS: ‘How can you justify worshiping a maniac that killed millions of pregnant women?’
  98. “@AtheistPatrick:  I often ask: How do you know which bits of the Bible/Koran are literal, and which are metaphor? #Atheist”
  99. “@nolarobert: Have you thought about the concept of eternity. That gives them pause while I get into the implications of infinity.
  100. “@DeanMI: did the devil author the bible?  Could be; he\she is a trickster – Lucifer’s power matches…”the one”! Prove this is not so.
  101. “@HowardHopkinson : My question would be: Please fully explain why you believe in your deity?”
  102. “@Curt_Ames: Depends on the religion. For Christians: What were Jesus’s last words?”
  103. “GammaAtheist: if you believe that Adam & Eve and Noah populated the Earth then you condone incest behavior”
  104. “@junkfoodking01: there’s only one life, why not learn all you can about what’s truly around u?
  105. “@pjwally: mine: how can you condone a murderer/rapist getting to heaven (deathbed penitence) while an atheist fond of goodwill condemned?
  106. “@FaS_Skeptic: How do we distinguish between a good god that allows evil, and an evil god who allows some good?”
  107. “@TheMostAthy: “How do you know that?” In reference to any claim they make about their deity.”
  108. “@jayportlandia: Do you recognize that you believe what you believe because that’s what mommy and daddy raised you to believe?
