Atheist Humor

This is the place to post that hilarious irreligious YouTube video, an irreverent, anti-religious cartoon, or other humorous bit of media. Posts that do not reflect an atheist/irreligious theme will be deleted. (Don't make me go Old Testament.)

Jack's comment promoting his book and web site has been moved to the Discussions section for those of you who are interested, or who have read it and would like to review/discuss the humorous aspects.

Hey, I think I dated her!

Agree Mike. I seem to have sparked this discussion, seems to be good potential for a forum elsewhere. So by way of atonement, here's some heterosexual humor to lighten things up.

@Ivy - Yeah, but who are the ones always trying to advance the "against nature" argument? If you trace back, you'll find the connection to the Christians, almost every time. It's just like Intelligent Design.

Add to that the fact that homosexuality appears in pretty much all mammals, plus the evolutionary benefits of homosexual members within a pack species, such as humans, and the "unnatural" argument falls apart.

I have no opinion on it's application to this group, but the link is there between Atheism and gay rights.

@Joseph -- The "ick factor" is a cultural/sociological issue, yes. But there are plenty of people who argue that homosexuality is "against nature" based on the fact that two men/two women cannot reproduce and are not equipped for convenient, reproductively-oriented sexual congress. These people are not bible-thumping--they're using the natural sciences to point out that homosexuality is "unnatural." While religion is a huge source of fuel for hating on homosexuality, it hasn't cornered the market.

I let some of the gay-themed humor go because I admit to being on the fence about it, but I'm not inclined to open the doors to all humor that addresses anti-gay themes because it could easily overwhelm the comm. Perhaps there's someone here who would like to take it upon him/herself to start a sister community? (Gaytheist Humor, anyone? :P )

That said, it is my intention to keep the community focus on atheistic, anti-religious themes.

Pretty much. The fact that the only real arguments against homosexuality are religious ones and the ick factor (which is just cultural bias and not a real argument), makes gay rights an Atheist issue.

Perhaps one can say that homosexuality IS a religious issue.

Mike, return ROFL at 'Curing homosexuality'. Ivy, nice one - says it all. Um, question, is humor directed only at gay issues without reference to religion on topic? There've been a few lately and I enjoyed them but ... ?

Mike that was great! "So I walked up to them and I was like, hey gays." Classic!
