Is it OK to tell atheist jokes?


Was Richard Dawkin's book "Brief Candle in the Dark" really just about his honeymoon? Is it acceptable to make such atheist jokes online?

    Not at all. Very good answer. You sound real. I should pick this as best answer but I'll just wait a bit and see as it's only been up a few minutes (oooo I hear you say)

    Thanks. You're probably correct. My question was in response to another question re is it ok to tell jokes about Christians. It seems atheists like to tell jokes about Christians but not vice versa.

    Totally agree! I think there is a great need for atheist jokes about atheists. At the moment 99.9'% of "atheist" jokes are about Christians!

    Race and religion are often synonymous so the Atkinson quote is incorrect. To be Tibetan or Indigenous for example religion is integral to one's race and culture. Atheism however tends to more neatly fit into the Atkinson quote.

    You could be right. John Cleese also says the basis of humour is offensive. It might be worthwhile to analyze the psychology of it one day. ie why is offensive funny etc
