The ranks of the religiously unaffiliated are growing. Good. We don’t have dogma, but I thought I’d list some benefits:

  • If you want to believe the world was created by a giant hamster, you can!
  • You don’t have to listen to people in funny hats
  • Abortions for everyone!
  • Don’t care about who begat whom? Don’t read the book
  • Everyone is just as confused as you are

If you’re looking for an even more select group, you can join the atheist subset of the unaffiliated. We have even more excellent benefits:

  • Feel superior to the rest of the population
  • All that praying by your fundamentalist relative will probably count for something if you’re wrong
  • Most of the population thinks you’re a disease-ridden degenerate – low expectations!

    Don’t your trackbacks work?

    Apparently not. I’ll have to look into that.

    And here I was, totally irritated and depressed by that article. All those people flip-flopping around and only 4 percent of them are willing to call themselves atheist OR agnostic?! What a bunch of asshats.

    I’ll take what I can get. Those unaffiliated probably aren’t telling people that stem cells are people and Jesus walked with dinosaurs.

    Besides, data from 2000-2001 has atheists and agnostics at 1% or 2%. Doubling our numbers isn’t bad.

    Half a million of us are Unitarians, very proudly believing nothing in particular thank you. Our most famous member? Emerson. Second most famous? Vonnegut. Good company.

    Eh, just make the leap, already.

    Thing is, I don’t think any of us know enough to make the leap. OK? I’m cool with humans being a cosmic blip of no consequence, but the larger questions – we’re not equipped for answers. We can only speculate, and to speculate that there is nothing is as foolish as all of the other inventions throughout history.

    That’s sort of the definition of being an agnostic, isn’t it?

    That would be it.
