200 Tombstones of Gods We No Longer Worship

Yesterday, the Atheists, Humanists, and Agnostics at the University of Wisconsin – Madison took that concept a step further. They placed 200 tombstones on a well-traveled part of campus and implored students to think about when their particular god was going to join the mix

    This is like going to the political science classes, showing everyone there a list of all the political doctrines that have “died” during the history of humanity and expect everyone to simply give up the very idea of having any thoughts about politics.

    Or going to a science class, showing everyone all the scientific theories that have “died”… well, you can guess the rest.

    Your argument concerning sciences does not make any sense. Science does not claim to produce absolute truths as religion does. Thus, scientific theories are replaced by new theories, if the new theories (or an expansion of previous ones) give a better understanding of natural phenomena. This does not necessarily mean that the previous theories were “wrong” and “died”. It rather means they failed to explain some aspects of an observation, where the new on did not.

    i call bullshit on agnostics participating. if they’re true agnostics they wouldn’t try to disprove shit. you people are idiots. and yes, atheism is compared to just another religion because of its cult like zealots trying to convince everyone that they’re right and to be like them. you people are idiots. half my family are atheists but not one of them gives a fuck if others believe or not. they simply say “i don’t believe” and leave it at that. you people are pathetic scum. fuck you all and fuck off.

    of course agnostics would seek to disprove the false, just because they are unsure of a god like being existing doesn’t mean they will believe anything you tell them, needle dick.
