An atheist speaks out.

Wednesday, May 03, 2006


This is the logo for the site I found it on Meier's blog (I think). The website has almost zero content to speak of, but I think the logo is cool. I made it my desktop background, and a couple of my roommates have asked about it, and this has made me think a little more about its meaning.


Mark asked, "So is Christianity a step up?"

"No," I answered, "it is just a step forward in time."

Later, Dan asked, "We go right to chimp?"



So, I would say that the step to chimp is not a physical evolution (duh) but a mental evolution. I can totally understand this when I think of the fundamentalists who take every word in the Bible literally; they are definitely dumber than the rest of us. By turning to Christianity in this way, people are adopting a much more primitive way of thinking, and are therefore mentally devolving in the direction of, although probably not to the destination of, chimpanzees.
