Sing the Atheist Anthem!

… so, you think can sing, eh?

Well, Desiree Schell, talk show host with Q. Transmissions of Edmonton, Canada, has asked me to tell you about a contest.

Q Transmissions wants YOU to sing us what is sure to be the next smash hit on the Skeptical charts… Fervent Unbeliever!

Perform your best rendition of the song. YouTube, your blackberry, your laptop… it doesn’t matter how you do it as long as we hear your lovely (or not so lovely) voice serenading us. Like this!

Get all the fame and prestige that a skeptical talk-show on a community radio station can provide. And a prize!

Go to Q Transmissions for the link to the lyrics, and to find out what the prizes are.

A few of my favoriate phrases from the song:

I don’t believe in Brahma, karma, Rama, Thor or Jupiter

I’ve studied both the Testaments but can’t say which is stupiter

[New York Accent version:]

I care not if you curse me in the name of Baal or Shiva,

For I am the very model of a fervent unbelievah.

[Boston Accent version:]

I care not if you curse me in the name of Baal or Shiver,

For I am the very model of a fervent unbeliever.

[the PZ Myers influence:]

I thoroughly despise the likes of Donohue and Bakker.

I posit that the Eucharist is just a frackin’ cracker.

    Sure, but you don’t put up the promo for Atheists Talk–and for my very first show, too. [sniff] What have I done to you? [sniff, sniff]

    Actually, it went pretty well.

    Rats. I did put it up but I never selected “scheduled” (well, I just did now) so it went unpublished.

    Were you the interviewer? These will be available as a pod case, of course.

    I was the host; Mike’s moving up in the world and someone’s got to take his leavings. The podcast is up.

    I don’t know about moving up, but I think you are a dandy host.

    Maybe you can sing ‘The Atheist Supremacist’s Song‘ while you are at it. . .
