If any of you have received that annoying "chalk breaking disproves atheism" video from evangelicals, you will be happy to see this. If you haven't, then be prepared, because you very well might!! This annoying urban legend, that is totally irrelevant to the legitimacy of atheism, has been sent to me twice by christians on facebook. So, this rebuttal is a breath of fresh air to cool off my irritation. ^_^

Heh I remember receiving that stupid story a couple of years ago, I found it quite hilarious mainly because if it was true, it makes sense. Why didn't the chalk break? Oh, when he dropped it, it hit his leg instead of just falling straight to the floor. Lower velocity means it wont break, what a shocker. Thank you observable and repeatable experiments that prove that this wasn't a miracle.

I remember this back in the day. My response then was, ".... umm, it was a piece of chalk... That doesn't prove anything one way or the other. The story's author is an idiot."
