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.
