Godless Medley

This is a medley of three songs I’ve written. The first, called “Little Atheist Me,” makes its debut in the medley. The second and third, titled “Songs About Jesus” and “The Fantastic Theory,” were previously recorded and released on my YouTube channel. Altogether, the video is just under ten minutes long. Two, if not all three, songs contain swear words. So put on those headphones.

“Little Atheist Me” is about nothing more than me and my worldview, which just happens to not include any gods. The song describes those things I do believe in, such as “love and hope and family,” as well as those things I’m afraid of, like “falling to my death or being stung by bees.” As the song says in the chorus, I’ve got “no time for Jesus.” I wrote this as a way to tell the religious community that atheists do have plenty of things they believe in or are afraid of; it’s just that none of those things include superstition.

“Songs About Jesus” is really just one song, and it’s only about Jesus insofar as the Christian belief that “Jesus is God” goes. So I suppose, really, it should have been called “A Song About God.” But there you have it. The song is also how a lot of Christians don’t seem very Christ-like, so I guess that’s the part about Jesus.

“The Fantastic Theory” is about Intelligent Design versus evolution, and the battle to censor science and/or teach ID in public schools. Mostly I cover evolution and sing about how life has no apparent design; and if it was created, it wasn’t done so very intelligently.

A few notes unrelated to the song(s)…

  • No, I will not take off that hat. I really like that hat.
  • No, I will not trim my guitar strings. No reason; I just can’t be bothered.
  • The silicone band on my right wrist is zebra-print and I got it at the Dallas Zoo. Incidentally, the Dallas Zoo is where my wife and I had our wedding ceremony.
  • The guitar is a Yamaha. I received it as a gift for my seventeenth birthday.
  • I bought my shirt through RichardDawkins.net

Also on my YouTube channel, you’ll find a few additional songs:

  • “Mary,” which is more or less about marijuana.
  • “Imagine,” which is a cover of John Lennon’s famous song.
  • “Rat-Zinger,” which is about the Catholic Pope and child-molesting priests.
  • “Fabulous,” which is about equal rights, especially for the LGBT community.

After the Rapture

This video was posted by YouTube’s TheThinkingAtheist on May 21, 2011:

RADIO ANNOUNCER: On May 21st 2011 at 1:27pm Eastern Time, billions of people suddenly vanished. Witnesses report hearing a loud trumpet, followed by a blinding flash of light and the sudden disappearance of men, women, and children everywhere.

Christian homes, suddenly empty, are now providing free clothing, furniture, and appliances to be donated to the poor. The dramatic decrease in motor vehicles on the road is reducing the demand for fossil fuels, driving gas prices down to 1.93 a gallon.

TBN, the Trinity Broadcasting Network, is now CSBN (Carl Sagan Broadcasting Network).

Prison populations have virtually disappeared.

Recycled bibles are now being used to make juice and milk containers for school children.

Former religious institutions are now being used for exploration, health, science, and recreation including facilities for laser tag (the Vatican), the world’s largest Jupiter Jump (The Creation Museum), and the worldwide distribution of Darwin Genuine Draft (Liberty University).

Our planet now has more money, more food, more space, more resources, more education, and more common sense than ever experienced in recorded history. There is a sense of joy, of jubilation, of freedom. The world unites in celebration in the wake of– *phone rings* — Hello?

CALLER: Hi, is this News 1550?

ANNOUNCER: Yes.

CALLER: Hey, uh, the Christians are all still here.

ANNOUNCER: Really? All of them?

CALLER: Yeah. Nothing happened. They’re all still here.

ANNOUNCER: Shit.

Life really would be better if all the irrational spouters of hate, bigotry, and intolerance disappeared.

What if God Disappeared?

The following video was created and uploaded to YouTube by Edward Current. It asks the question What if god disappeared? and goes on to explain how the world would be affected. One example is that since god is the one who gives us a sense of cuteness and love, a puppy will no longer be adorable but will instead just be another object that we could “have sex with, if we wanted to.”

A Moment of Humor.

I happened upon the videos of a youtube user called nicepeter. I found this one to be particularly good.  He does the Epic Rap Battles of History, in which two famous figures duke it out. This one is Einstein vs. Stephen Hawking.
