Photo 14 Aug 5 notes If you’re going to keep re-defining “god” to mean something that is more and more vague (and hence less provable) with each iteration, that’s fine, but don’t mistake that for transcendence or immanence. It’s just a desperate attempt to keep one step ahead of the science.
Or as those of us living in the real world call it, “reality”.

This cartoon is unintentionally ironic for obvious reasons.

Atheism is often seen by atheists as a kind of awakening to the genuine (as opposed to illusory) possibilities of the world and everything in it.

Leaving aside all the straw-man reasons this is wrong for a moment:
