“Time for Atheists to Stop It”

I hear the cries and the calls of the religious moderate, and they are as usual correct. We have been too uppity, and I apologize on behalf of all of us. We should have known better, of course but in our exuberance at the publication of books by Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett and others, we forgot to realize that even though our numbers seem to be growing we are really riding the crest of a fad. It was something we should have recognized, and we should have told all those who heard that there are other atheists just to go home and pretend that they are religious, just like Mom and Dad.

    Spread the meme! Some people casually leave tracts around town for other people to find.

    I’ve taken to crossing out “Jesus” and writing in “our imaginary friend” and replacing “God” with “the tooth fairy” and “you can get our religious reminder” with “$end money! $$$” and “prayer will give you strength” with “tell your troubles to your teddy bear.” It still makes sense.

    Then I put them back where I found them.
