    This is not surprising, really, after much crowing of the intellectual extremist global community, that finally the Jabber would reveal itself in humor. While I have suspected this event would come about, I wasn't on a quest to find it. In fact, I was researching paranoia with regard to sensationalism/equation and fell into this...

    American Atheist Legal Director and "priest" of the Church of Om Edwin Kagin, is seen dressed as a monk, de-baptizing people with a hair dryer and ministering with wafers and coca-cola in place of the bread-wine thing.

    Is this really the attribute to be accepted -parody, blatant crude humor- as a certain sign of intellectual guardianship, supremacy over other theologies and most importantly --social expression of livable hope, personal responsibility and unity of human kind? … hurch.html

    This I found to be odd. A list of Atheist Saints: … saints.htm

    So, my opine question: after you remove the layers of this onion called atheism, mostly being media build up and indoctrinating many people --former or defunct "religionistas" mostly, is atheism just another would be "Vatican approach" to a human condition that is both misleading and deceptive, as their supposed counterparts?

      This is just a bit of silliness that is appealing to the same demographic as those who find humor in the Church of the SubGenius.

      If you could de-baptise folk with a hair dryer (which I find quite funny to think about) then they were not baptised in the first place, maybe they were dunked by a enthusiastic pastor, or splashed by a misled priest or vicar, but they sure were not fully water baptised and Holy Spirit filled, after regeneration by Christ.

        Seriously. It just shows how silly things are. People having to resort to theatrics like this to what, prove they aren't as smart as they thought? They would have a better success putting on a Star Trek off-Broadway show...

      Wow! You are upset that some of us reject your ISM.

      No. it is a humorous way of dealing with a perceived issue without resorting to physical violence. Now - I suppose you could argue that this is emotional "violence," but - as I keep saying - if you don't want people to laugh at your beliefs - you shouldn't have such funny beliefs.

      And seeing as the religionstas tell us we are fools for not believing and that they treat people the way they would like to be treated themselves....... wink

      Most humanists promote the social expression of livable hope and personal responsibility, but feel that your ridiculous beliefs divide rather than unite, offer no hope in this life, promote the idea of no personal responsibility, and actively cause conflicts (see any history book).

      It is pretty funny as well, so thanks for promoting this. I really had never heard of these guys.

      Oh dear - does Y'achoo not like people to have any fun? sad

      Edit - I am now a Legally Ordained Minister Of The First Church Of Atheism, so if you know any one needs an un-baptism doing - let me know. I also do weddings. That is where the real money is. lol

    Not in the least Marcus. I was researching for similarities of paranoia between the elements of the Ism, when I this.

    So then, equal condemnation, condensation, contemplation, concentration, contradiction and most definitely constipation for all? lol Got it.

    So you admit than that Atheism IS a cult, like the rest of the cults and feel it necessary, adequate, valuable to steal their ritual ideologies material and poke fun, while in the same token, asking the global social classes to accept it as more believable than theirs? (Do unto others or lack of originality/material. Hmm, maybe lieing & stealing for the "non-Jeebus"? Okay...

    This would be a pure humanist? Then yes, I agree. Because a true humanist is neither a theist or atheist. So these acts as counterbalance will stop the conflicts. Dear me, what have the former Good Humor Kids turned Hare Krishna, Post Aquarius, Love In, Flower Children become?? (see Dawkins, et al.) They have left the planet in ruins, poisoned the minds, hearts and food MY generation lives with, then blames my generation for shortcomings, all the while poking fun at each other and the stupidity of their new found freedom of expression called Church of Atheism? Aren't these the same people who flooded the planet in global nuclear radiation leaks, WMS stockpiles, racist acts of cleansing "kindness" and more, to fill their happy go lucky pockets?

    There are actually thousands of these "churches" worldwide. Funny but Creepy.

    lol I am so not surprised at that. You would make a great grand poobah of that lodge. yabba-dabba-doo!!

      Why, oh why do atheists need a church. So they have a place to ridicule w/o leaving the neighborhood?

    This is far from the first church of Athiests.

    My all time favorite is the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. This uses a tongue in cheek diety but uses every existing religious argument to prove its own existence.
