Atheists In Kenya (AIK)

Stop believing in myths …

The fool says in his heart… 


One of the passages from the Christian bible which Christians are particularly fond of quoting at atheists on or around April Fools’ Day is Psalm 14:1-3.I’d like to remind you about one of many simple ways to respond to this projectile quote.
As a brief reminder, this is what Psalm 14:1-3 says:

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good. The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God. They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no, not one.

Most Christians who pitch this quote in your direction are content to use only the first sentence, essentially saying that atheists are fools. I have not encountered nearly as many who go the full distance and call us “corrupt”. 

Since the Christian hurling such a quote in your direction likely believes that his or her bible is worth at least some attention, I suggest that you offer a quote of your own. Specifically, I’d refer to Matthew 5:22, which says,

Whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Interesting, isn’t it? The Christian who squeals with delight while tossing Psalm 14:1-3 at you is risking the wrath of his or her imagined god by doing so. That being the case, I think it is probably safe to conclude that such a Christian is either ignorant of his or her bible or – and this is where it gets fun – doesn’t give a damn because the transient pleasure of insulting you is worth the risk of eternal punishment.
