fanmail from Australia
been a fan of your site for about 2 years now, especially the Jesus
dress ups and such. I'm an Aussie aethist (from the land down
under- Australia) and just wanted to say how much your site makes
me laugh at all the ignorant people of the world, Christians and
was stuck at an Anglican all girls school for 12 years, where I
was forced to sit through weekly chapel services and 2 classes a
week on 'christian studies.' Needless to say I was surrounded by
goody goody christian wearing those WWJD bands and staring at me
as if I was the worlds worst person.
my group of chicks were all like me, and we delighted in tormenting
our christian classmates by mocking their so called faith as well
as getting up to things which would surely send us to hell!! I mean
fuck, we were stuck at an all chicks school what do they think we
did on weekends!
year old of school, having escaped only mildly crazed from the 12
years of bible bashing I have endured I continue in my good aethist
ways and love every minute of it. 'God bless' having non believers
for parents too haha. And thank fuck that I'm away from the hypocritical
freaks who resided in my school, saying one thing and then doing
the opposite really shits me. Ah the hyopcracy of christians!! At
least I have to guts to do what I say and mean it!
i say to them is read some Nietzche and see GOD IS DEAD, we have
killed him its meaningless now to base our society and belief system
on this redundant force.
thank you bob for saving me from my fate, I may have become a christian
and be getting married at the age of 18 (like one of the chick i
went to school with) just to be able to have sex legitimately in
God's eyes. I see I can make my own choices and have all the more
fun without having to answer to the suposed creator of this world.
attatched a photo of myself so you don't go and get a freaky weird
arse one of some random.

Everytime i read your hate mail i become more sure of my atheism.
Dude religion is somthing you dont make of fun of that way. Like
south park, they portray jesus as a cool dude with super powers,
not dressing his dead body with colourful close!
just some sick old dude. Your probly HITLER!!!!!!!
read the following Bible verse and share your comments
with me... Romans 6:23
Subject: a request
Please read the following Bible verse and share your comments
Thanks for taking
the time, Bob.
Wow, the emailers
just get lazier and lazier.
All right, I went to that oh-so-important verse that you sent
me to go find and here's what it says:
Romans 6:23 The reward that wrong ways give is to die.
But the gift which God gives is to live for ever. Christ Jesus
our Lord has done this for us.
My first impression
was, "WOW! Gosh! Sounds like if I worship God I'll live forever!
And if I don't I'll die!! What a wonderful gift God has given
us!" Then I fell to my knees and prayed like the prayin' fool
But then all one
has to do is substitute any name in place of God's and Jesus'
name and I'm left to wonder if I'd have the same reaction
to that. Let's see.
Romans 6:23 The
reward that wrong ways give is to die. But the gift which
Anna Kournikova gives is to live for ever. Anna Kournikova
our Lord has done this for us.
"Wow! Gosh! Now
I want to worship Anna Kournikova so that I can live forever,
and if I don't I'll die!" And I fall to my knees and pray
to her too.
Gee? Is that all
it took? Am I that easily persuaded?
You see, the problem
is that I think those are all just words written by superstitious,
prehistoric old men who never considered logical forethought
or common sense. I don't think that God exists or the Bible
to be any valid sorce of fact, therefore I have very little
respect for whatever it says, and I'll even scoff those who
bow down and worship something simply because words are written
in a book telling them to. And I especially scoff someone
who thinks that those words are somehow convincing or fascinating
enough to start any type of debate on any topic what-so-ever.
Tell me, were you
as blind sided by this glorious knowledge as I was?
Bob, for your comments yesterday.
Subject: Re: another
Thanks, Bob, for
your comments yesterday. Here's another verse I'd like you
to peruse. As always, I welcome your comments and thoughts.
For all have
sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
What does this say to you, Bob?
Gosh. This is another
good one. God sounds like a pretty humongous, terrific fellow.
Unfortunately we do not know for sure if all fall short of
the glory of God because we don't even know if God exists.
And if He doesn't exist (which is what I believe) then we
all surpass the glory of God immensely!
So yeah, that's
where I stand on that. Another useless quote from a book written
by men who couldn't even make toast. Reason enough to scrutinize
do you think Jesus came to die, Bob?
Subject: yet another
one Bob: "I tell you the truth, unless a man is born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3
Why do you think
Jesus came to die, Bob?
You really do enjoy
letting that book do all your thinking for you. How about
a quote from you?
Did you know there
are many books that claim they are telling the truth? And
then there are many books which claim to tell the truth but
tell things that are untrue. Did you know that? Shocking,
I know. Would you like to know what I do in this dilemma?
I reason things out. I use common sense to decipher the lies
from the truth. I also use evidence and proof to help me in
my decision making. And finally I also look to science to
see what the findings are and how it all fits in with with
the logical scientific answer.
Did you know that
the best lies contain an element of truth? That's what the
bible is. A lie that contains elements of truth. Jesus Christ
had many lessons that made sense and provided good rules in
which to live by. Unfortunately the bible also claimed that
God turned Lot's wife into a pillar of salt, and that all
of the different languages spoken around the world began at
The Tower of Babel. Those are lies. Accepting these lies
as truth makes people stupid, gullible and, frankly, very
Jesus was born
to a woman who lived in a time where premarital sex was justification
enough for death by stoning. Jesus was born with everybody
wanting Him to be God's Son, and in those days the starving,
poverty stricken people had no hope and had no trouble being
convinced that their salvation had been born in Bethlehem.
Why do I think
Jesus came to die? I understand you think He did it to save
us from Satan. I am much more reasonable about the matter.
I believe he was a man who was put to death during a time
when going against the popular religion was a crucifiable
offence. It's not an outragous claim or extremely far fetched.
I promise you Jesus
Christ was not the Son of God and that man will never come
back again, swooping down from the clouds to lift you all
into paradise forever. I also understand that you'd like that
to be the case, and therein lies the real problem.
a nice eternity, Bob.
on the last verse. Here's today's:
Jesus said to him.
"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to
the Father except through me."
Have a nice eternity,
I'm beginning to
see a subtle pattern to your "witnessing" technique. It's
a reoccurring theme where you just send random passages from
the bible thinking that this somehow sums up all the reasons
to believe and why you yourself believe. So compelling. It's
obvious you've put a lot of thought into the matter at hand
and aren't just basing your life on the bible's catchy phrases.
Okay, on to today's
verse: John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me."
Are you interested at all in putting out any of your own thoughts
and the evidence you've accepted that validates your beliefs?
Is there a personal reason why you chose to worship Jesus
Christ instead of all the other gods, religions, cults, nursery
rhymes, etc.? I mean, besides the fact that this is the belief
you are surrounded by is there any other reason you're into
the bible? Or don't you have thoughts of your own anymore?
I wonder why you
haven't sent me Lev. 20:14 "If you lie with your wife and
your mother-in-law, then all three of you must be burned to
That's a fun one!
But your sign-off
I think summed you up best. You want the eternity, that's
what you're waitin' for. Hell, we all want to live forever,
David! That's not the question here. No matter how much you
want to live forever that isn't enough to make sense out of
nonsense. Despite God claiming He is the truth there is still
no way of explaining how the dinosaurs fit into Adam & Eve's
time period without sounding like a lunatic.
And you know it
doesn't look good how you keep avoiding my questions. Simply
saying "Interesting comments" every time is not how one goes
about looking intelligent in a conversation. Are you finding
yourself in over your head in this dialog? That's what it
seems like from this end.
Ooooh! I wonder
what the next quote from the bible you'll pick!
