    OK. This one made me laugh. Really hard. I am a sick individual.

    Treating this metaphorically—as the author intended—it’s completely true.

    Today’s lions are the plain-spoken atheists who rationally express the philosophically-uncontestable view that the human construct known as the christian religion is an absurdity embedded in the darkness of ages past, in times long before the enlightenment established by the scientific method.
    The currently too-few lions must roar more forcefully and in the right places—above all in the public domain where right-wing christians endlessly shout.
    More websites like this one and The Enlightened Observer and Richard.Dawkins.net help to strengthen the lion prides, all the better to penetrate the bastions of the church and ring the bells in the cause of freethinking intelligence.

    Dawkins style Militant Atheists = Lions.

    I’m a leaf on the wind, watch how I [ROAR!!!!]

  4. Terence Meaden Says:

    There are no militant atheists.

    It is militant religionists who throw bombs at innocent people in streets, railways, hotels and discos, who crash aeroplanes into buildings, set up illiberal theological courts, one-sided inquisitions, and torture and abuse.

    Richard Dawkins, John Sutton and other freethinking rationalists represent the innocent truth-tellers who keep pointing this out.

    lol,
    the funny thing is that even if you would look at it by real numbers (considering lions as those four legged ones occasionally found in africa) it still remains true.
    I like Anon. He/She is probably the closest thing to God I can think of. No date of birth, no date of death… and through out history he/she usually comes up with the funniest quotes 🙂

    Cheers
