Atheist Meme.

Why believe in God? That imples a requirement of faith. And what is faith? Belief in something that you can't prove is true! That's Memetically unsound. Better to believe in relative truth than relative uncertainty. At least then you're not tied to something that drags you down without even needing to exist.

And isn't religion just fascism of the mind? A force of mind control that needs no force? All you're doing is bowing down to a non-entity. The ultimate form of subordinance. God is dead ... I am alive! Each Of Us is a God. Our own God, and no one elses.

Atheism is the only answer to your prayers. God save us from religion.

"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize humankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel - Thomas Paine (The Age of Reason)

As in the very word itself: be-LIE-ve.

"I still say it is a self imposed thought prison you do not need." - Tony Hindle

"The blue sky is an illusion created by the sun to hide an infinite black void. When you die the worms eat your brains. There's no God to save you, and Jesus Christ couldn't even save himself." - David De Void

"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." - Galileo Galilei

"When you understand why you reject the 9,999 other Gods, you will understand why I reject all 10,000." - unknown

Evolution Meme

We evolved from a common origin. That's the very essence of what Darwin said. We were once all the same, in the time when life had just begun. Science proves the book of Genesis wrong. If Adam and Eve were really the first two beings, then there must have been a lot of inbreeding! I don't think so. Take a look at the evidence. Then isn't it evident that the Bible is wrong, and that Darwin was right? Pit science against God. The bigger they are the harder they fall. It's a long way down for God.

Evolution is: "The non-random selection of randomly varying replicators" - Richard Dawking

"Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are and what they might have been." - William Hazlitt

Memes Meme

Find out what a Meme is. If more people were to understand the concept, then wouldn't it be so much easier to understand eachother in a world that's going slowly insane. A world where Nuclear arms lay in the hands of too many people. A world where racial and sexual ignorance reign over reason and caring. To teach those people new ways of thinking and new outlooks on life would be a supreme achievement, and Memetics is the way that it can be done.

"One of my responsibilities as a Memetic Vector is to condense and redistribute the data I gather from eclectic travels so others don't have to" - Prof. Tim

"In this world, there are two kinds of people - Those who Get It and those who Don't. If the meaning of this is not immediately obvious to you, count yourself as one of the latter." - Hyperdiscordia.

Peace Meme

"Live long and prosper", said Mr Spock, but what are the odds on that if we all get killed in a war? Do you want to die before your time? Do you want to die in pain? Who would? I guess only someone who's not that switched on to the world. So what's the point in all these Weapons? What's the point in all the violence? What's the point in race hate or war-lust? You're only going to die at the end of it. Remember, there's always someone with the power to kill you. The strongest can never remain so for long. We all die in the end, but it's how you die that matters. I don't believe that everyone can be friends, and I don't believe that hate should be abolished, but I do believe that in the overall scale of things, there's no real point in taking anything too far.

Peace doesn't mean Weakness, just as War doesn't mean Strength. It's not never falling that makes one strong, it's getting up when you've fallen that dictates strength.

"Make Love, not War" - CND slogan

"Make Tea, not Love" - Unknown

Tolerance Meme

Variety is the spice of life! That's what they say, isn't it? Can you imagine a world where we are all the same? You're ununique! You're "run of the mill". What's the point in that. Variations in the gene pool are what makes life adapt to its surroundings, so that it can survive. Invoke the Evolution Meme in your MemeSphere. Without differences between us, we'd all die out very rapidly, leaving the earth to those who do have variations in their genetic code. don't draw a divide between people because evolution took them down a different path. Remember, just as they are different to you, you are different to them.

"There's only one race and that's the Human Race, and every Human Being's got the right to feel safe." - Clawfinger.

Pleasure Meme

Invoke the Atheist Meme in your MemeSphere. What's the purpose of life? To live sinlessly? To be dedicated to a cause? To do something that's worthwhile? Well, sin is only something designed by religion. Religion is merely fascism of the mind. Do what you want, because when you die, it's over. And who's to judge what's worthwhile? Only you, because each of us is different. If you want to do something, and it will give you pleasure, then it is worthwhile. Dedicate yourself to a cause if that's what you want to do, but don't feel like you have to do it, because it will only drag you down. The only aim in life is to enjoy it. That doesn't mean not caring about other people, and it doesn't mean being cruel to others, it means doing what you want and how you want, and hanging the consequences. Please yourself, please others, and adopt the Pleasure Meme.

"Have a good time ... All the time ..." - Spinal Tap

"It's not that life is too short, it's just that you're dead for so damn long..." - Unknown

"You only live once." - Unknown

Anti-Lottery Meme

Did you know that the Lottery can easily be re-named the "Moron Tax"? Afterall, what is it? You pay the government some money, and they give you nothing in return. In England there is supposedly a 14.7 million to one chance of winning the national lottery. And you really think you're going to be the lucky one? And suppose you are? That doesn't matter, because at the end of the day, the people as a whole are making a net loss, whether you win or lose. How does it feel to be paying more tax than the people who don't enter the lottery. That's what you're doing. Just think of the things you could do with the money if you didn't spend it on Lottery tickets. You could spend it on something much more worth while that will give you some satisfaction. Don't subsidise other people. Make money on your own merrit, not by luck.

"Price of Lottery ticket = cover charge for wealth fantasy" - Nate F Gifford

"Lottery: Taking from the stupid to give to the pretentious" - Duncan Gibb

"The odds of winning the lottery are approximately equal to the odds of meeting Elvis in your local record store. So if you meet Elvis in your local record store, then don't enter the lottery, because the odds of both happening are astronomical!" - Unknown

Logic/Reason Meme

Isn't it frustrating when someone refuses to listen to what you're saying, even when what you're saying is logically thought out, and well reasoned? Don't you just hate people like that. They need infecting with the "Logic/reason" Meme. While you try and do this, just remember that people who can't or won't employ reason in their arguments are less intelligent, and think a lot less about what they're saying. Whatever you do, don't become like them. Learn to lose an argument if you're in the wrong, and learn to think about your views very carefully. That way, you'll never end up being excluded from rational discourse.

"Truth has very little to do with how a Meme spreads"

Anti-Suicide Meme

Invoke the Atheist Meme in your MemeSphere. Invoke the Pleasure Meme in your MemeSphere. Life is all there is. After that there is nothing for you. So why end the life that you have? Life is, as we have mentioned, for the purpose of individual pleasure. Get rid of all your hang ups about sin and morality, and make life into what you want it to be. The
Church of Zero tells us that we are our own God. By definition this means that you hold supreme power over yourself. If this is the case, then you cannot end your life, as this will violate your supremacy. By being dead, you are no longer in control of your life. Since as a God you must be in control, you do not have the power to remove that control from you. Only an even higher form of power may do that (ie, the force of nature).
