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.

    Armenians Crash Iraqi Beauty Contest

    From ABC news:

    Iraq's newly crowned beauty queen, Tamar Goregian, has decided to step down — just four days after her election, making this the shortest reign in the pageant's 60-year history.
    On April 9, the 23-year-old, who was the first Armenian Iraqi to win the Miss Iraq pageant, announced her resignation after receiving threats by a group of religious extremists who referred to her as "the queen of infidels" for participating in the contest.
    Pageant organizers had hoped to pass the crown to the runner-up, or "Maiden of Beauty," Mona Hilmi, an Iraqi Sunni Muslim. One of the organizers said she was "equally intelligent and beautiful."
    However, the second and third runners-up also withdrew from the competition for security concerns. They had not received specific threats.
    Miss Teen Iraq, Silva Shahakian, a Christian, accepted the title.

    Upon accepting her crown, Miss Shahakian, the latest, 'queen of the infidels', thanked everyone and said that she would use her title to promote world peace and understanding. She noted that she would not be accepting the first place prize of a two year supply of Turkish apricots and added that the Turks should take the apricots back and shove them up their asses.
