A cartoonist’s view on atheism


I am sure you all are familiar with the comic artist Dan Piraro. At his blog he regularly posts one of his strips with commentary. Today’s entry along with this week’s discussion of Philip Davies’ essay was worthing of sharing. (NB: The links in the text are Piraro’s.)

Let’s talk for a moment about how scary the word“atheist” has become in current-day America. Many people equate the designation “atheist” with epithets like “nazi,” “pedophile,” “criminal,” and “insurance company CEO.” As the funky DJ might say, “Let’s break it down, now.”

Theist: one who believes in god(s).
Polytheist: one who believes in more than one god.
Monotheist: one who believes in only one god.
Atheist: one who does not believe god(s) exist.
Polyunsaturatedtheist: one who believes that god speaks to us through nutrition labels.
