Well, sports fans. I generally avoid the R&P forums. But I just couldn't pass this one up.
USPS discriminates against atheists.

Looks like the real deal to me.
I am neither following nor returning to this thread. You guys sort it out.
I think you're missing the point here, which is that those shoes are hideous. Omg I wouldn't be caught dead in those, even if I didn't believe in an afterlife...
And who names a shoe "KITTEN TESTICLE GREY" like for real, c'mon now....
Here's the point...
"it (the shoe company) ran a test. It sent two packages to 89 people in 49 states. One package had Atheist tape, one didn't. Those marked "Atheist" took three days longer to arrive, on average, and were 10 times more likely to disappear altogether. No such bias occurred in Europe. "
If you tell the world what you have in a package you are more likely to have it stolen than if you don't. They are being stolen by people who like the shoes.
More likely, the packing tape is confusing U.S. sorting machines, but not those in Europe. There are probably differences.
IMHO the only thing stranger than starting a thread and declaring you will never visit it again, is perpetuating that thread.
Who knew atheists wore different (specially made even) shoes?
I'm more in awe of the company in business solely for the unbelievers. As far as I know, no one makes Christian shoes?
Otherwise, I don't think there's really anything special about this.
If the sorry is true, the packages appear to be prepared by someone with no shipping knowledge. They need to ship UPS, whose rules are much more lax. The local post office here probably wouldn't accept either package. The one with multiple atheist stickers looks suspicious to me. As would a package with the word Christian thrown across it multiple times. As if the person wrapping was unhinged. The other package doesn't Asher to USPS shipping guidelines either.

Why Don't Atheists Believe In God?

The amount of attacks against religion in these HubPages Religion & Beliefs forums is akin to Communist Russia between 1925-1947 with the League of the Militant Godless (aka the Union of Belligerent Atheists). Because these aggressive types just make up a small minority of society it is...

There is no Atheist text.This ensures Atheists can't manipulate the ambiguous writings from 2,000 - 3,000 years ago to justify their actions.As far as I am aware, no one has committed mass murder in there name of there being no God.The vast majority of modern religions have had countless atrocities...

Because they aren't as loving and compassionate - as they fancy themselves to be (which constitutes a 'true' vegetarian).

What are the biggest lies/misconceptions spread about atheists and agnostics?It seems there are a lot of opinions about atheists and agnostics without a lot of facts. Some of the more common ones are lack of religion/God causes moral decline and atheists are waging war on Christians...
