Atheist Memes of the Day

Atheist AGreta Christina has been putting out these Atheist Memes of the Day that are really good and thoughtful, like this one:

Today’s Atheist Meme of the Day, from my Facebook page. Pass this on; or don’t; or edit it as you see fit; or make up your own. Enjoy!

Atheism is not a belief system. It’s a reasonable conclusion based on the available evidence. If atheists see better evidence supporting the God hypothesis, we’ll change our minds. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.

and I’ve wanted to repost them for some time, but I have this preference of just clicking “add to Facebook” buttons, or at least copying directly and then posting proper attribution to the source (like I’m doing now).

Unfortunately, all these great memes are useless for the person already an atheist — we already know these things. The people who most could use reading them are the religious, in hopes they can understand us non-theists better. But the problem, for me, is as you may have seen, Greta’s blog is not necessarily safe-for-work, thus a likely source of offense to the religious person checking the site out.

Easy solution: don’t feel obligated to always credit Greta, linking to her site, and just copy the meme as I see fit . . . which she states if perfectly acceptable! So, I guess I’ll start doing that and stop making things annoying and difficult for myself. 🙂

So, once I decided that, I thought I’d go back and start copying from the first one. Holymoly there’s a ton of them! That’s not going to work so well. I guess I’ll just start from today and post them as they come. Although, I encourage you to go back and read through some past memes — they’re all really good.

Here’s another past one for the time being:

Atheists have meaning in our lives. In fact, most of us find greater meaning in life without a belief in God — since we’re free to create our meaning for ourselves, instead of having our meaning handed to us by a divine being… or by what other people tell us the divine being says. Pass it on: if we say it enough times to enough people, it may get across.
