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.

    Oy, Please Don’t Call It, the ‘Swine’, Flu

    The outbreak of swine flu should be renamed "Mexican" influenza out of respect to Muslim and Jewish sensitivities over pork, said an Israeli health official Monday.
    Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman said the reference to pigs is offensive to both religions and "we should call this Mexican flu and not swine flu," he told a news conference at a hospital in central Israel.

    The Atheologist was deeply touched by Yakov’s concern for his Muslim brothers, after all how many Muslims are there in Mexico anyway? Besides, most Mexicans are followers of that declining religion that the Atheologist’s previous post touched upon. Those Catholic pork eaters seem to have overlooked that part of the Bible, Leviticus 11:1-3, which strictly forbids eating pork and even the watching of Porky Pig cartoons.

    According to the Atheologist’s copy of, ‘Christian Rules and Regulations’, Christians are supposed to be Christlike. If Jesus did it, they do it. If He didn't they don't. That being the case, the Atheologist does seem to remember something about Jesus feasting on Chinese spare ribs and pork fried rice at the last supper, (or was it lamb). Alas, a quick search of the New Testament did not confirm any of this so the Atheologist may have come upon that one in one of his many Jesus dreams.

    Here are some questions that the Atheologist has for Yakov -
    Is this Canadian farmer actually a Mexican?
    Where the hell is Madonna and her magic Kabbalah water when you need it?
    Is the Hippo flu the cause of obesity in the USA?
    Is the name, ‘Mad Cow Disease”, offensive to Hindus?
    How about, ‘West Nile Virus’, is it offensive to Egyptians?
    Does the term, ‘Lyme’, disease disrespect Margarita drinkers?
    Why have the Atheists been so silent on this issue, is it their fault?
    Is it safe to eat Jews? Some of them do look very appetizing.

    P.S. The saying, “when pigs fly” may now be obsolete now that, pigs flu”, sorry.
