The Atheologist

Theology is the study of theism; Atheology is the study of atheism. I am The Atheologist. Why don’t Atheists embrace religion when the vast majority of humans do? Why are Atheists regarded by most of society as thugs, rabble, vermin and generally naughty people. The Atheologist will attempt to seek out the true answers to these and many more questions by using logical assumptions, interviews with people of all faiths and really, really good research. The Atheologist wants to know.

    Atheist Tells Catholics That They’re Drinking Sewage

    Sanal Edamaruku, an rationalist/atheist, got into a lot of trouble after he visited the church of Our Lady of Velankanni in Mumbai, where a statue of Jesus Christ was dripping Jesus water. Worshippers and clergy, declared the phenomenon a miracle. Sanal declared the miracle as nothing more than piss and poop, and found a clogged waste water pipe was responsible. Priests had been distributing this holy water to parishioners who drank it for its magical healing powers. 

    Now Sanal has run away to Finland in order to avoid being arrested for, “deliberately hurting religious feelings”. The Atheologist supposes that that’s just one more thing that atheists don’t believe in – jail.

    Last evening the Atheologist's and thousands of other peoples' commute was prolonged due to a very large gathering at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford New Jersey. Nearly 90,000 Orthodox Jews gathered at MetLife Stadium to celebrate the completion of a seven-and-a-half year study of the Talmud. The Atheologist only wishes he could have been inside to experience all of the sights, sounds and smells, (also there was dancing)!

    It's unbelievable when you think of it: God created the universe with trillions and trillions of planets, in addition to Earth and waited about 13,700,000,000 years so he could make a few Jews from Palestine his favorites about 2,000 years ago, (while ignoring the rest of the 200,000,000 or so people on the planet at the time). Now that’s love!

    The Atheologist and his fellow commuters should feel privileged to have been delayed while the chosen people did their thing.
    The Atheologist was texted by a co-worker regarding the matter and was informed that his, (Jewish), wife remarked that it was probably those, “damn Jews". The Atheologist assumes it was an autocorrect mistake; he most likely was trying to text, "dear Jews".

    Update 8/3 - Helicopters were seen above the stadium earlier today attempting to air it out. What a party it must have been!

    Santorum To Puerto Rico: This Is America, Speak English!

    Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, in an interview with the El Vocero newspaper on Wednesday, told Puerto Ricans they would have to make English their primary language if they want to pursue U.S. statehood.
    As he was exiting a special-needs school in San Juan today, with his wife, Karen, and five of their seven children he clarified his statement:

    "If the spics living here want statehood, they need to speak English and have to stop having sex with their goats. Oh, and it’s 'Jesus', not, 'hey-soos', ok!"

    Ray Is Right

    A couple of the Atheologist's co-workers were having a chat recently about politics.
    A question was asked by the co-worker standing to the left of the Atheologist to the co-worker standing to the right,
    "Why do Conservatives think that progress is made by moving backwards?"
    The co-worker standing to the right, (lets call him, "Ray"), seemed to twitch a little then a slight growl may have been heard. He then responded, at the top of his lungs, (probably just in case people in the next room were interested), with this:
    "You want to know why? You want to know why?
    Because sometimes you have to move backwards so you don't fall off the cliff. The cliff of Socialism, liberalism,  homosexialism,  Muslimism and atheism. That's why!!!   Jesus Christ, women can vote now can't they?!?!?!?"
    "Ray", then stormed out of the room.
    Another co-worker of the Atheologist then wondered out loud whether or not there were any guns or swords lying around the office.

    Gallup Poll: Republicans Attend Church More Than Democrats

    The Atheologist read that a recent Gallup Poll shows that 40% of Republicans say they attend church weekly.
    Twenty-one percent say they attend nearly weekly or monthly, and 38% say they seldom or rarely go to church.
    Compare that to only 27% of Democrats who say they go to church every week, 20% who say they go monthly and 52% of Democrats who say they seldom or never go to church.

    The Atheologist supposes that if you ask any of these intelligently designed, God-fearing, church going individuals the reason for this variation, they would most likely state that it was because Republicans pray a lot for those that need it - you know, the gays, atheists, liberals, lazy unemployed people, stem cells and Muslims. Democrats obviously don't care about anyone.

    Here's an amazing fact the Atheologist has uncovered that even that Gallup guy hadn't: Republicans attend church more often than Democrats, atheists and Jews combined, (not counting any Jews for Jesus of course).

    God bless them, every one.

    Happy Fat Tuesday

    It’s Fat Tuesday in The Crescent City, The Big Easy, The City That Care Forgot, The City That Bush Tried To Forget, Nawlins, NOLA. ..etc,  happy Mardi Gras to all.

    Although this is usually a happy and fun time, the Atheologist has been alarmed at several recent news stories involving deaths attributed to Voodoo candles, which are very popular in New Orleans.
     In Brooklyn, NY a fire was accidentally set during a Voodoo-Sex ritual, which killed a woman. Another woman was killed in England when a Voodoo candle set her robe on fire and an elderly man also died from burns he received while lighting Voodoo candles, (also known as votive candles), in a church on Long Island, NY.

    The Atheologist wishes all y’all a happy Mardi Gras, have a Hurricane for me, but remember to be careful around your Voodoo candles. And when lighting them in church watch your back because there are some frisky priests around who may mistake you for a cute little altar boy, and you may find yourself wondering, “who dat, knockin’ at my back door?”

    The Body of Christ

    More proof of God's existence and power came to light when it was discovered that communion hosts which were consumed at a Long Island NY church on Christmas day included hepatitis A.

    For centuries the debate has raged on - is the holy host just a symbol of, or does it, (as the Church says), actually become the flesh of Jesus during the communion service.

    Atheists and most Jews have said over and over that they want poof and now they have it.

    Here's the proof: When the Communion hosts were transformed at Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church into the flesh of God's only son, the hepatitis virus that he must have contracted early in his youth also came along for the ride. A quick online search of the bible and YouTube found nothing stating that Jesus never had the disease.
    To summarize: The original host, (Jesus) transubstantiated into the Communion host, then the Communion host became the intermediate host which passed the virus to human congregant hosts. The Atheologist, also being an amateur biologist, finds this totally plausible.

    The Atheologist is now waiting for a rebuttal from the atheists. The Atheologist can hear them now, saying that they don't believe in heaven, hell, hepatitis or anything that begins with an, "H" for that matter.

    The diocese's website, meanwhile, states that "We pray that no one comes down with this virus or catches any of our priests being naughty with any of our adorable little altar boys"

    PS: According to the latest Pew Foundation survey , 45% of Catholics, are not aware of what they're supposed to believe they're eating when the host is popped into their mouths. This should wake them up!

    Atheist Fools

    The Atheologist recently received the following in e-mail from a co-worker:
    In Florida, an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.
    The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring," Case dismissed!"
    The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my Client and all other atheists have no such holidays."
    The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant."
    The lawyer said, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."
    The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned."
    What a cute little story that is, (although many atheists will scoff at being called, ‘fools’). The Atheologist has in fact discovered many YouTube videos which actually try to depict atheists as being wise rather than foolish beings. In this and this video, for example, atheists such as Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Ernest Hemmingway, Carl Sagan and Marie Curie among others are presented.

    The Atheologist wonders - if these people were allegedly so smart why they had such a hard time picking out a religion. With so many hundreds of religions and gods to choose from, any dummy should be able to find one to his or her liking.

    And you atheists out there, don’t dare point the Atheologist to the “Snopes” website which states that the above court case never happened because Snopes also states that Einstein never humiliated one of his college professors or that another college professor never dropped a piece of chalk or that a Marine never knocked out a college professor. In fact, if an atheist perused the ‘Snopes’ website, especially the, 'glurge', section, for any length of time, that atheist may come to believe that college professors don’t exist either.

    Very Important:  If you don't send the above e-mail to at least 56,000 friends in the next 95 minutes, a large pigeon with diarrhea will land on your head this afternoon and the fleas from 18 camels will infest your armpits. I know this will occur because it actually happened to the Atheologist's mother-in-law's friend’s second cousin’s husband's barber.

    Stairway To Heaven

    The other day the Atheologist was walking up one of the stairwells at his place of employment, when out of the corner of his eye he spotted something. There lying on the landing floor was a very familiar image, it was the likeness of Jesus fashioned from paint chips which had fallen off the stairwell wall. To the unimaginative or mentally stable person, they were simply paint chips arranged in a random design. But to the Atheologist it was a holy vision. Just look at his smile, it’s no wonder he’s known as the light of the world’!

    Now many atheists would question why God would do such a thing – tip to atheists; don’t question God, he doesn’t like it! As far as the Atheologist can tell, this is the first time our Lord has shown himself using paint chips as his media. There have been numerous occasions when Jesus, Mary and other religious celebrities have shown themselves in grilled cheese sandwiches, windows, underpasses, wood panels and even Cheetos, but never out of peeling paint.

    Should anyone wish to view this miraculous icon, please contact the Atheologist who, (for a paltry $50.00 tour fee), will escort a limited number of pilgrims to this secret site. Those pilgrims of Mexican descent may bring a bottle of Tezon Blanco Tequila in lieu of the aforementioned charge. (That stuff is amazing and will aid the Atheologist in his quest for similar religious iconic experiences).
    But please hurry before the maintenance crew sweeps the stairwell.

    Oh Tannenbaum, Your Branches Green Delight Us! Or Do They?

    This is the time of year when a lot of people think that it’s cute to erect an artificial or real tree in their living rooms and decorate it with lights, knick-knacks and bric-a-brac. But is this really such a good idea?
    According to the Bible, it is not, and Bible seems pretty clear in its prohibition
    Jeremiah 10:

    "Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel : Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen.For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest,the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.They deck it with silver and with gold…”.

    Now every true Christian knows that only pagans, atheists, devil worshipers and pretend Christians would even think of ignoring God’s wishes. Like the wearing clothing made from the wrong combination of fabrics or cooking a young goat in its mother’s milk.

    The Atheologist recently corresponded with one such pretend Christian.The Atheologist recieved an e-mail from the Coffee Bean Corral which along with updates on their latest coffee bean selections, declared that unlike those cowardly individuals and businesses who choose to call a "Christmas" tree a "holiday" tree, the Coffee Bean Corral never would. They also had a link to the, ‘real story of Christmas’.
    The Atheologist quickly shot out the following email informing them of their serious transgression.

    Hello to everyone at the Coffee Bean Corral, I was at first delighted to see that you celebrate the holidays by telling the real story of Christmas. But then I read about how you refuse to call a “Christmas tree” a “holiday tree”. Any true Christian would know that the ritual of decorating a tree or God forbid, bringing one into the house, is a Pagan practice and forbidden by God.

    The Atheologist then suggested that if in fact they were real Christians at the Coffee Bean Corral, they should pay more attention to what was written in the Bible, repent and maybe cutting down on their caffeine ingestion would help.The Atheologist quickly received this reply from one Terry A. Richards of the Coffee Bean Corral:

    "Last evening I went to Jeremiah and read this passage. At the time this happened the people were taking the tree inside and worshipping the tree as their god. I only worship one GOD and he is the true GOD.
    I have no need to repent at least not concerning a tree."

    Oh really Terry “A.” Richards. Does the “A” happen to stand for atheist or antichrist? Which is it?

    The Atheologist urges all of you good and true Christians who wish to remain good and true to never bring any sort of shrubbery into the house and never, ever call a "holiday" tree a "Christmas" tree. Jesus will thank you for it and possibly not send you to hell. (Where to leave the gifts will be Santa's problem.)

    PS: Some people suspect that Jesus and Santa may be one in the same individual - the beards, last names starting with "C", both become very popular around Christmas time, they both love children…etc. The Atheologist believes that this is just a coincidence though, and would much rather be on Santa’s naughty list than be on Jesus’. The Atheologist can deal with a lump of coal in his stocking or lousy gifts from Santa as opposed to having Jesus send him to hell to burn and be tortured for ever and ever for all eternity, (because he loves me).
