April Fools Day – An Atheist Holiday?

April 1, 2007 at 9:20 am 4 comments

Concerned posted this comment a previous blog:

I hope you fully consider what you are doing profaning God’s name in your blog. God is a jealous God, and will not take your atheistic view lightly. One day, everyone will acknowledge that He is Lord and King, you included. I pray that you enjoy your national holiday coming up….April Fool’s Day, because it is a fool who thinks he can get away with opposing God and leading others along with him. I pray for God to touch your heart and allow you the opportunity to change. Satan and his influence are rebuked this day in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. (emphasis mine)

A toast!I stand rebuked. 🙂

The specific scripture Concerned refers to states “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.'” (Psalms 14:1; Psalms 51:1)

So if today is our holiday, have a drink for me!

p.s. Of course, VJack over at the Atheist Revolution blog says it’s a Christian holiday (thanks for the info. Simen)

Are you a “fundamentalist atheist” and what is your view of religion? Atheists come in all shapes and sizes

    Strangely enough, it’s my brain that says that the christian god doesn’t exist. My heart is only concerned with pumping bloody through my circulatory system.

    I can’t imagine that that scriptural reference applies to me, then.

    Happy April Fools’ Day! 🙂

    Cheers to all the atheists! (clinking our martini glasses together on a Sunday morning)

    Vjack suggests that this is really the only Christian holiday, because it’s the only one that’s about gullibility. I tend to agree.

    Can I get some of that rebuking action? I have a feeling with all the heart disease in my family I will need God to touch my heart.

Agnostic Atheism Wager

Whether or not you believe in God, you should live your life with love, kindness, compassion, mercy and tolerance while trying to make the world a better place. If there is no God, you have lost nothing and will have made a positive impact on those around you. If there is a benevolent God, you will be judged on your merits and not just on whether or not you ignored the lack of evidence of his/her existence and blindly believed.
