We are all atheists

Post by I Think »

If you don't believe in the god thor, or ra , aphrodite, then according to Richard Dawkins you are an athiest. He goes on to say that some of us are one god ahead of the bunch.

Hermaphrodite is a person with both male and female reproductive organs. I'm not sure how they got mixed up with Thor or Ra.

Maybe that should be Aphrodite, instead of hermaphrodite.

actually this is what Dawkins said " We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in. Some of us just go one god further."

A lot of people can be seen praying to the lottery gods.
Does tithing the lottery gods guarantee an afterlife?
