Hate Mail

I give and I give.

Their letters are in yellow, whilst mine are in black & white.


And the best part is, they were still in that box the next day.

Latest Updates

Subject: You = My Atheventure Inspiration

Hey there, Bob.  I have been a long time fan (e-mailed you a few times in the past).  I have been an atheist for almost as long (four years).  I visit your site every day looking for updates.

A few months ago, on your site, I saw a photo of a guy holding a sign next to a street that said, "GOD IS FAKE," and you asked if anyone knew anything about it.  Well, that guy wasn't me, but that guy became me.  I asked myself why I wasn't doing something like that.  So, I grabbed an old political campaign sign, recrafted it, and started what I have called "Abe's Atheventures." For the last five Sunday mornings (not including Christmas), I have been holding a sign that says, "GOD IS FAKE" in front of fundamentalist/evangelical megachurches in the Portland area and my hometown of Vancouver, WA. 

I started with the church I attended for ten years as a child, then went on to the church that hosted my old Christian elementary school, and then hit the churches in Portland.  As services poured out, I held up my sign in view of church-goers in cars, wearing my Sunday best with a tie, and holding a Bible proudly against my chest.  Sure, I got a lot of wagging fingers, shaking heads and frowns, but I also got a lot of smiles and laughs.  The most violent reaction came from someone who threatened to run me over, but he learned how to be a good Christian in the end.  And many people came up to me and talked, and almost all were as friendly as could be, which was the best part, because I had a chance to give them the Good Word of atheism in depth.  Some of them followed up with e-mails to me.

I wrote accounts of my atheventures at the Interent Infidels Discussion Boards, and I seem to have gained a small cult following.  People have asked me if it is OK if they copy this idea, and I am surprised at the question, because it isn't really my idea, and it would be nothing less than awesome if more people did it.

I hope to continue it indefinitely.  This coming New Years Day will be a Sunday, and it is one I hope to make especially memorable and significant for my handful of fans and for the largest church in Oregon.  It is because of you, and I wish to give you credit for giving me the attitude and the motivation.  Your story about seeing the Passion of the Christ dressed as the devil was one of the best things I have ever read.  Thanks, Bob!

Love,
Abel Dean (ApostateAbe)

Making funny stuff?

Bob

Jesus and the Cross is not funny


That's ok with anything but Jesus

Jesus and the Cross is not funny it's Salvation

But what if I believe that that's all superstitious D&D nonsense? Then
is it all right to be funny with it?

He is my redeemer and the only hope, joy, and peace

Bob
Jesus is God's only Son and Salvation is found in no other. He is my redeemer and the only hope, joy, and peace that will last. I care about you and God Loves  you seek Him, seek salvation today, and PLEASE stop making fun of God's Son

Following Jesus

Yeah, see. It's this kind of thing that I'm talkin' about. Total Magic the card game, mythical bs.

"The God of Earth-land will conquer the seven headed dragon of Grugon! And His spawn will redeem your living soul from the oceans of fires of Tubetu! Stop taunting the spawn of the Supreme Being or face the swarm of gargoyles that'll be cursed upon you in the time of dread!"

That's exactly what I mean.

...and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in Him.

Bob

I will be praying that God will open your eyes to the true love of Jesus

1 John 4:15-16
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in Him.

God is Love

Do you pray that He will also open my eyes to the Golded Chariots of the Royal Angels that gallopped through the skies above Nazereth? Are you also praying that my eyes will open to the race of giants that once pillaged the tiny villages with their huge clubs and thundering voices? Will my eyes be open to all of this mumbo jumbo as well?

teens and kids are influenced by this 'joke' your putting on the internet.

Subject: !!!!!!

Hi,
im just here to say wtf is wrong with you? your just like the other people who think that there is no Jesus or God. you better think before you decide on doing these things because if you dont already know other teens and kids are influenced by this "joke" your putting on the internet. they will think that Jesus is just one of those people who they can make funn of. You probably dont even care whatever i juz said , you juz want the money you might get out of this. Shame on you man!

Of course I care! How can you say that I wouldn't care! I care a lot! More than you know.

Unfortunately it's not what you want me to care about. You see, I care more about those kids and teens than I care about your Jesus. I know that this statement repulses you to no end. In fact, you probably want to puke all over their text books hearing that I care more about living human beings more than your God. But that's just too bad. It's how I feel.

Your Jesus means nothing to me. Zero. He's as worthless as a dead guy who died 2000 years ago. Telling the truth however, that's what's most important to me. And your talking animal stories, naked garden people, and eternal paradises are about as much truth as a terrorist getting his 40 virgins up in heaven.

So yeah. I'm happy to hear that the kids and teens are getting a cheap thrill off my Jesus-joke. Now they're that much closer to finding out the true things they need to know to help them in real life, not Bible-land.
