New Site Description

Per some comments that Clos made, I rewrote the little blurb thingee that describes the blog group. I got rid of the part that says "While we're not here to bash religion or the religious..." and changed it to "While we are all mostly atheists and agnostics, theists who are critical of Ray Comfort are also welcome to join."

Personally, I'm not in this to bash religion so much as the outrageous claims of certain religious people. I have plenty of conversations with people of faith where I don't feel the need to contradict or argue with them, and I imagine that it's the same for most of you as well.

Still, I think that the new description is a little more accurate. Let me know what y'all think, and I'll make any necessary changes/additions.


  1. The blurb is quite long already, so thumbs up for this change from me.

  2. We already cut it down a bit - but I think that you're right about it still being too long. Brevity is the soul of wit, as Polonius said.

    I'm getting tired - I'll take a crack at an even shorter description tomorrow. I've been writing so much today that I'd probably write something like, "Ray is a booger head. He eats poo. If you think so - join us."

    Hmmm...maybe I've got something there...Okay, okay...bedtime.

  3. "Ray is a booger head. He eats poo. If you think so - join us."

    I would join based on that description.

    At least it's factual.

  4. Maragon LOL !!! I like that one!

    Yeah, I agree, I don't bash all religious people either, so the change is good with me.

  5. I have absolutely no problem with people believing whatever they like in the privacy of their own heads. It's when they start trying to tell other people how to live their lives and using threats and falsehoods in the process that I object to it. All of the real life Christians that I know (the ones that just get on with their faith without making a big deal of it), think that Ray is a huge embarrassment.

  6. When they try to get their irrational pseudo science, rather faux science, taught in pulic schools and legislate morality to comform to their silly beliefs is when I get motivated to oppose them in every way I possibly can.

  7. Maragon LOL !!! I like that one!

    Hey! She was quoting ME!!

    Credit where credit is due here. Don't make me take my third grade humor back to "Atheist Central".


Unlike Ray we don't censor our comments, so as long as it's on topic and not spam, fire away.
