    Atheist Holy Day

    FLORIDA COURT SETS ATHEIST HOLY DAY: In Florida, an atheist created a case against Easter & Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews and their observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognised holy days.

    The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case Dismissed."

    The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, "Your Honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur, and Hanukkah. Yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays."

    The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Counsel, your client is woefully ignorant." The lawyer then retorted, "Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."

    To which the judge replied, "The calendar says April 1st is 'April Fools Day.' Psalm 14:1 states 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his holiday. Court is adjourned."
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    I submit that "atheist" and "holy day" are a contradiction of terms. But this judge did have sound backing for his decision.

    Here in the UK there has recently been a huge advertising campaign by atheists with posters stuck on the side of buses etc.

    A spokesman for the London Bus Service is recorded as saying -

    If they wish to spend lots of money saying such things they are free to do so.

    Sure !

    Man, Dawkins is behind even this campaign! He seems to evolve in a kinda omnipresent thing. Does he still have a bit time for science, or bus slogan campaigns and populist rant are taking all of it? Just wondering...
