Chances of an "Athiest" believing in God


From the lol-comments on MyConfinedSpace (original post here):
"I believe in God but I believe he’s an asshole." sutenvulf
What do atheists scream when they come?” Bill Hicks.

At least "Atheists" can spell.

Snark.

LOL, who's to say an atheist didn't make that image.

another interesting comment from MCS: "Jesus Christ people yes it’s funny, if you can stop defending atheism for one second and laugh at yourself it’s VERY funny, no one here has ever put in a bet on a game and prayed for a field goal or not… Atheists acting like defensive Christians, I guess every religion and even the absince of religion has it’s sticklers."

Absince!

I can just imagine them typing in a religious furor. Like Bill Hicks said, "You ever noticed how people who believe in Creationism look really unevolved?"

The little graph is so vague that I can't tell what side it's trying to support.

This post reminds me of El-P's Flyentology (Featuring Rob Sonic and Trent Reznor) off his I'll Sleep When You're Dead record (Listen here: http://www.definitivejux.net/store/catalog-product/US-A4T-04-137-00.html). The joke's probably expressed a bit more eloquently but it's essentially the same one plus drum flavour! Lyrics below! Enjoy!

[Trent Reznor:]
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say
I'll become your soldier, at least for this day
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say

[El-P:]
I know I haven't been walking a humble path
I know I cursed at your name and then laughed
And though I found it inane to bend calf
The servitude of groveling framed as pained task
I gotta figure, it can't hurt to ask
Suspension of disbelief in uniquely freak flash
Admission of the faithfully shaken, now trapped
30 thousand and dropping it's on and popping at last

[Trent Reznor:]
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say
I'll become your soldier, at least for this day

[Rob Sonic:]
No!
There are no atheists in the foxholes
No!
There is no intellect in the air
No!
There are no scientists on the way down
Just a working example of faith versus physics [x2]

[El-P:]
Flyentology (oh god)
Everybody get your ticket today
Flyentology (oh god)
Welcome aboard, sir, right this way
Flyentology, flyen-flyentology (oh god)
Our bible is in your seat back pocket
Flyentology (oh god)
Tuck your head between your legs, now pray

I adore you
The same way that others always adored you
Emergency, humility
Just break glass
I implore
With no knowledge of dogma to conform to
I know I don't deserve it, but save my ass
And if I'm going down, let me do it in first class
The paganistic prayer of a heathen with wild past
Please forgive my bastardized style dash
And anoint me with salvation in form of non-crash

I wanna live so bad
All my life, I've been so arrogant
This is the vessel of my 'wakening
Please father, put your hand out
Carry it
I wanna live so bad
All my life, I've been so arrogant
This is the vessel of my 'wakening
God damn it, put your hand out
Carry it

[Rob Sonic:]
No!
There are no atheists in the foxholes
No!
There is no intellect in the air
No!
There are no scientists on the way down
Just a working example of faith versus physics [x2]

[El-P + backing vocals by Trent Reznor:]
This is (oh god)
This is flyentology (oh god)
Flyentology (oh god)
Flyentology (oh god)

[Trent Reznor:]
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I cry
I'll become your servant if it's worth your time
Keep me in the sky, that's all that I'll say
I'll become your soldier, at least for this day [x2]

No!
