I think The Blasphemy Challenge is a brilliant initiative for a number of reasons;
It plays a part in consciousness raising - making it obvious to the world that we infidels are numerous beyond popular speculation. I also think that the challenge might, over time, empower the idea that being religious is embarrasing, and we make no reservations when it comes to lashing out.
I think it might have an impact on the number of Atheists who make themselves known as such, and who dare to have themselves counted. I think it plays a role in exposing the fear with which religion dominates so many people around the world, thus allowing us to stab it in the heart.
I think it forcefully plants the notion the we DO NOT BELIEVE IN HELL! And thus don't mind selling our 'souls' to the imaginary enemy of the pious bigots of the world. So to you pious morons out there STOP THREATENING ME WITH HELL FIRE! I DON'T BELIEVE IN HELL! IS THAT SO DIFFICULT TO GRASP?!?!
I do not live in the US - So I cannot really participate in the full shebang - but the initiative is worthy enough to take only as far as the uploaded video.
So in support of this initiative I shall lay out the instructions here:
You may damn yourself to Hell however you would like, but somewhere in your video you must say this phrase: "I deny the Holy Spirit."
Why? Because, according to Mark 3:29 in the Holy Bible, "Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin." Jesus will forgive you for just about anything, but he won't forgive you for denying the existence of the Holy Spirit. Ever. This is a one-way road you're taking here.
Once you have shot your blasphemous video, just follow these two easy steps:
1. Go to http://www.youtube.com/video_response_upload?v=i7QVbJnSPQE on YouTube to upload your video as a "Video Response" to the Blasphemy Challenge. (You can log in or register on that page if necessary.) Please put the URL http://www.blasphemychallenge.com somewhere in the text description when you upload your video.
2. When the video appears on YouTube, send the URL to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Also include a complete United States mailing address* so we can send your free copy of The God Who Wasn't There.
