"Religion is a hypothesis about the world: the hypothesis that things are the way they are, at least in part, because of supernatural entities or forces acting on the natural world. And there's no good reason to treat it any differently from any other hypothesis. Which includes pointing out its flaws and inconsistencies, asking its adherents to back it up with solid evidence, making jokes about it when it's just being silly, offering arguments and evidence for our own competing hypotheses...and trying to persuade people out of it if we think it's mistaken. It's persuasion. It's the marketplace of ideas. Why should religion get a free ride"

Draw Mohammed Day

Today is Draw Mohammed Day, in honour of which I’ve knocked up this image in MS Paint in order to prove I have no artistic skills whatsoever. It is also my Facebook profile picture for today only.
It is also to point out that regardless of what the followers of Islam believe, those of us who do not adhere to their particular brand of religious tomfoolery are not obliged to obey its rules.
I eat pork, beef and shrimp. I work on Saturdays and Sundays, all of which are against the rules of some stupid religion or another and I don’t expect to get death threats for doing so. So today along with hopefully thousands of others I am drawing Mohammed. They can’t get us all.
