Atheism is not a creator of beauty, in fact it has a hard time in being positive at all.

Ask these guys.

Miley Cyrus! Can't we give her a little shove into Purgatory? Either her or me, I don't think I could face the torment and hell fire with her around as well!

Don't blame you. It was simply one I'd seen a few days ago and knew where to find it.

Meanwhile, your sig is incredibly gender-biased...

Edit: Also, you can't count. There are 12.

Are we really including Ayn Rand as a member of the human species?

What fascinating idiocies fundamentalist belief exposes.

Does this chap (I assume it's a guy) think that no women are permitted entry to heaven, or that gender isn't a factor of eternal souls?

I think Miley Cyrus has copped way too much crap. Very talented person who has grown up under a spotlight - that rarely ends well.

Oh, and thanks Aphorist, I will never take a dump the same way again.

The atheist is positive enough to negate an opinion, but can they actually create one with any measure of success?
