1. How do you know when someone is feminist or atheist?

Wait 5 min and they will tell you over and over and over and over all about it.

5. That's funny but

I have never had a group of atheists come to my door at fricking 8 am on a Saturday to tell me about it, nor have I had a group of feminists do that but I have had;

Jehovah's Witnesses
Mormons
and a couple of other Christian groups.

My favorite one was when i went to the door and told them i couldn't let them in because I was not dressed and they said we will wait. I said no you wont! I am going back to bed and please do not knock again. They came back , occasionally they still come back they drive right past the no trespassing sign.

I would shudder at the thought of a group of feminists showing up at the door as well. I am an equal opportunity leave me the HELL alone kind of person.....

2. Gervais makes a good point

I watched this portion of the late show.

Avowed Catholic Stephen Colbert challenged Ricky Gervais in a spirited debate over the existence of god and Gervais’ embrace of atheism.

“I know that you’re an atheist,” Colbert began during Wednesday’s episode of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Do you want to debate the existence of god?”

After Gervais signaled he was up for the challenge, Colbert asked his fellow comedian, “Why is there something instead of nothing, why does the universe exist at all?”

Gervais protested the premise of Colbert’s question, insisting the argument for religion isn’t over why the universe exists, but how. He explained that he’s “agnostic atheist,” meaning while he doesn’t know for sure whether there is a god, he doesn’t think anything outside “science and nature” created the universe.

Now, I have an appointment with the builder of my new house. Adios.

3. The "deity concept" was simply...

Ancient mankind's attempt at explaining the existence of something he lacked the scientific ability to comprehend.
"You know, you grow"... .

(at least SOME of us do..!!!)

9. ok...does have possibilities for cool funerals

The Ohio river at dusk, a large viking ship, a bier, some gasoline....it would be quite a send off, maybe i could have my husband find some enemies and we could do a viking blood eagle...that part is probably a bit over the top....
