Road Signs from God

A Sign from God?
It appears as though the UK Highways Agency have heeded the warnings of the inherent dangers associated with irrational beliefs highlighted by the recent Protest the Pope rally.

The following new road signs have been designed to be placed on public highways near places of worship or irrational religious gatherings where other road users are at risk of a collision with nonsense.

    1. No free thinking… especially if you happen to believe in something.

    2. I’m a freethinker and I’m going to harass and taunt anyone who doesn’t agree with me!

    3. The term “freethinker” is as much an oxymoron as the term “Scientific Creationist.” Your thought process isn’t free. You do not “choose” to believe that 2 plus 2 equals 4. You either understand that it does (a purely deterministic and involuntary process) or you don’t. Likewise, people do not choose their beliefs, they just happen as a result of the way the brain processes impulses.

      Don’t believe me? OK, then choose to believe in Santa Claus. Go on. Do it. It should be easy. If beliefs were voluntary, you should be able to change them at will, right? But you can’t. You cannot choose to believe in Santa Claus. You can choose to write the sentence “I believe in Santa Claus”. But that’s not belief. Those are just letters on a screen. Whether you believe in Santa Claus or not is the result of an involuntary process with no “choosing” involved. Same thing for believing or not in Jesus, Mohamed, Buddha, Bart Simpson, or Batman. So “freethinkers” should stop being such jackasses about it.

      • I don’t like that word either. However, I think it might refer to the fact that they have broken away from the indoctrination of their youth.

        After all, I’d consider a mind that is not subject to committing thought crimes (or that’s not programmed for cognitive dissonance) mind freer than a mind that is.

    4. Now, if only we could get the religious nuts to actually heed the signs.

      Catholics will stay catholics, even if their head honcho (that gets guidance from Jesus) protects pedophiles.

      Scientologists will assume that whoever says something bad about their cult is a suppressive person that needs to be destroyed by any means necessary.

      And then there’s the Christians that just ignore huge swaths of the bible to protect their own sanity. Of course these signs don’t apply to *them*.

    5. why is FSM in there? Pastafarianism is insanely anti-religious. Way more anti-religious than this piece of crap. It’s a satire on all of creationism in every form. Whoever made this is a fucking idiot
