A perfect picture of what is happening in the U.S. today.
You may have to explain that a little bit. I do get the cartoon, but who is being executed in the U.S. today? You can't mean atheists. By and large we enjoy an execution-free life. We also enjoy the same freedoms as our eager-believer cohorts. So, what is the point?
The point is not execution, but rather persecution.
@Daniel Patrick Day
And you know this because that is your interpretation and your interpretations become facts? You didn't notice the noose, I suppose.
I think you're mistaking my comment as being about the cartoon. I guess I should have headed it with @Dale Headley whose comment on a cartoon depicting an execution was "A perfect picture of what is happening in the U.S. today."
His comment still mystifies me and he hasn't bothered to clarify his comment for us. I think perhaps he was simply being rather hyperbolic.
I think you might be reading more into Dale's comment than necessary. Atheism is truly a bright idea.
And you are ignoring the "perfect" part of the comment. Even as a metaphor, things are not nearly that bad for atheists,
Let's limit our discussion to the U.S. Some wacko or a handful of wackos might take their hatred or paranoia or religious zeal out on an atheist, but I don't think I've ever heard of such a thing.
You use the word "they" as though "they" (the ones who dragged a black man to his death) represent the majority. Poppycock!
And even if they did it to an atheist, that is something they did. It's not something almost anyone else would do. It's totally anomalous. You're like the foreigners outside the U.S. who read about some outrageous incident of police violence and conclude (using the fallacy of composition) that that is what American cops are like in general
I don't think human nature is determined or even described by the worst examples of human behavior. I also don't know what is accomplished by this fallacious reasoning.Also, if those evil people in the South have stopped lynching blacks and now only think about it, that's a big improvement.
Yes, but atheism is a choice, like being gay, is it not? LOL
I like how all the "believers" in this image are candles, with flames on their heads, and appear to be made of wax. The flame they are accustomed to burning is literally burning them up. As it burns, it consumes the wax, which will dwindle away until nothing is left.
An electric light bulb, on the other hand, shines brightly using an external power source. It can shine for hours and hours without ever diminishing or shrinking the "body" that houses it in any way. This heretic has found a way to shine brighter than any of his fellows WITHOUT destroying himself in the process.
