The Muslim Skateboarder from Egypt

The interaction started off a bit hostile and confusing.atheist_booth_muslim_from_egypt

While sitting at the “Ask An Atheist” table, 2 men approached at the same time, so I assumed they were together.  The man in the red shirt was calm and smiling, and said he is a Christian and had some questions.

The other man, in a blue tank top seemed immediately agitated, and started in to a rant Continue reading

The Rude Return of AngryMan

The man in the red hat is "AngryMan", who has been lurking around the booth and making weird rude comments. A few months ago he threatened artists at the Makers Faire because he didn't like their robot.

The man in the red hat is “AngryMan”, who has been lurking around the booth and making weird rude comments. A few months ago he threatened artists at the San Diego Maker Faire because he didn’t like their robot.

The vast majority of people who talk to us are very pleasant, even when they disagree with our cause.  After 4 years of sponsoring a weekly booth in Balboa Park, we’ve not yet had to ask that anyone be arrested.

There is a man who has approached the group on at least 4 occasions within a span of a few weeks, and made very bizarre, angry comments.  I’ve also seen him standing at a distance watching us.  I’ve taken photos of him on several occasions, so that he can be easily identified in case he does something extreme.

A few months ago at the San Diego Maker Faire here in the park, I followed him to a nearby art exhibit, where he began a shouting rank about how much he hated the art and that it’s a waste of resources, and then physically threatened the artist.

That was the last time I saw him until today, when he walked up, make some weird comments about our whiteboard, and stormed off yet again… but not before I shot another photo of him!

What odd about him is that he doesn’t seem to be religious and upset that we are calling out the claims of religion, he just seems to be angry and hateful in general.  He likes to yell “shut up” at people who have never spoken to him before.  The only good thing here is that he is very thin, always wears non-baggy clothing, and never carries anything so it’s easy to see that he’s not armed.  If he shows up with a large bag, I’m heading for the hills.

If anyone knows who he is, please contact me.

The Ultimate Proof that Prayer Fails: Church Massacres

Reasonable people know that prayer fails 100% of the time, as shown by studies of prayer and detailed on many sites such as WhyWontGodHealAmputees.

Today is the 1 year anniversary of the day that God was yet again “asleep at the wheel” and did nothing at all to stop a killer from shooting to death 9 people, WHILE they prayed, IN church.  There is just no excuse for that.

Christianity is about avoiding moral responsibility

“Christianity is about avoiding moral responsibility. They literally think they’re saved no matter how evil they are, because Jesus has forgiven them. They’ve been absolved of their sins and that means they can maintain the delusion of self righteousness when they’re bullying non Christians, who had the audacity to be born with “original sin.”

Morality is meaningless in Christianity. Intelligence is meaningless. All that matters is that you’re a gullible sycophant for Jesus. This is why Christianity is so appealing to many people who don’t have a conscience.”
