Help Advertise Atheism is Dead

If you have a website or blog and want to advertise Atheism is Dead you can place any of the images below in your side bar or put up a post featuring an image.
Perhaps, you just want to invite your friends (or antagonists) to visit us via email—just “save as” and attach an image to your email. Of course, whether emailed, or placed into a website/blog you will want to hyperlink the actual image as http://atheismisdead.blogspot.com/

If you are placing the image onto a Blogger side bar I have found that making the width size 225 works just about right (but your particular template may require a slightly alternate size).

I have hyperlinked these images myself but do not know if that will carry over when you “save as.”

Get creative, have fun and it will not cost you a penny/pence.

Also, note you can do a double whammy and mention “Project Answering Atheism” images for which you may find at this link.

  1. Really, Mariano? You have to reduce yourself to plagiarism? You're better than that, aren't you?

  3. Hmm ... JumpTees, you come in and accuse Mariano of plagiarism based off of something as simple as a similarity between designs. But the second someone applies that idea to the world, they are called an ignoramus. And atheists talk about how Christians compartmentalize...

  4. Mariano,

    I've been a frequent gadfly at the Atheist Experience for some time, but they got tired of me making a fool of them in their comboxes so they banned me. Was fun while it lasted, though.

  6. Hi all. I love these sites where know by faith only Christians believe they “know the truth”. Hilariously enough this blog should be renamed atheism on the rise as the below article shows just how fast paced people are abandoning the Christian faith.
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/4965093/Americans-abandoning-religion-as-number-of-non-believers-climbs-to-15-per-cent.html

    Of course becoming a non believers doesn’t make one an atheist, however it is the pathway to which one may become one. Even the largest Christian polling group Barna Institution show how in recent years fundamental Christian beliefs have declined. Jesus’s birth, death, divinity and resurrection have all been debunked by archeologist, linguists and those who study the history of astrology and religion only to find the duplicity of all the attributes are mere anthropomorphized stories of the solar objects of the sky. Linguists have found how the latest gospel, the book of John took Philo’s philosophy of the logos to help create the idea that Jesus was god while Pauline letters and the other gospels still refer to Jesus as a son of god, a partner in a trinunal group of gods, but never call Jesus god. All great men of the past were sons of god. And archeologists have in the last 200 years uncovered more pantheons dedicated to all the sons of gods than god could possibly remember having, with more still to come. So is atheism dead? Not according to the fast rising statistics of non believers and even popular Christian polling centers. The only place it seems Christianity is at a rise is in the most uneducated, poor continent in the world, Africa. But hey, once they get their shit together Im sure they too will come around.
    Thanks and have a great day!

  7. If you are ready to advertise, the first rule is tohave a product.

    Here are 3 things that will help you have a more marketable product.

    1. Get more reliable contributors, and if they are no longer regular contributors(Stan, Croath, M etc), take them off the rolls.

    2. Get involved with the conversation (Mariano) when you make a post, and ignore comments and just make another post and change the art, it shows that you are not interested in interacting, and that is pretty much what the modern blog landscape is about, interaction. It's not a publishing house.

    3. The name "Atheism is Dead" is an unsubstantiated claim, and reeks of ridiculousness.

    I looked up the original survey you mentioned. This survey, like others, only states that 1.6% of the U.S. explicitly call themselves atheists. Hardly a rousing majority by any standard. With these surveys, you have to take into account the rise of non-denominational churches, which some of these surveys do not account for. As well, many churches are now trying to get away from being seen as "religious", which connotes blindly following a set of rules without any enthusiasm. Many churches now emphasize relationship with Jesus over an empty following of rules. My point here is that many Christians would not say they have a "religion". Finally, you also have to take into account that many believe in Jesus or another faith, they may have just not found a church/synagogue/mosque/religious place to their liking, which would therefore qualify them as "unchurched" but not necessarily "unbeliever". As for the rest of your commentary, there is just as much historical and archaeological evidence supporting the Christian faith. Just because there are similarities you mentioned, there is no evidence one caused or influenced the other. So, sorry MJ, if your going to come with that argument, it just doesn't fly.

    Full of yourself much? Why don't we all have a look at how you "made fools" of them then.

    The first post that comes up summarizes the apparent real reasons why you got banned. They're even helpful enough to link to ERV's blog where one can see your wisdom on display there.

  10. MJ;
    Thanks for the comment I always appreciate getting a taste of the extreme as your claims are about as convincing as YEC is to atheists.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'm not actually physically laughing, but your comment started out bad and then turned into an intellectual blackhole - so I figured that was the most appropriate response. I'm pretty sure I lost a few IQ points simply by reading your comment.

    The survey does take account the rise of non denominational beliefs, still Christian and religious as religion denotes, where the practice may have changed but belief has not. What has risen is people who no longer call themselves Christian, who no longer believe in the divinity, death, sinless nature and resurrection of Jesus. Though the article doesn't show these statistics the Barna group study does. Many people are now falling into a non Judean-Christian-Muslim culture where they believe a deity doesn't prescribe to any of the current pop cultural man made religions.

    "As for the rest of your commentary, there is just as much historical and archaeological evidence supporting the Christian faith.

    I never refuted the faith itself. It sure had its history, supporters and proponents who helped place it in the history books, what I said was that belief in Christianity has declined. I never said that Jesus's attributes were similar, I implied that they were identical to that of the hundreds of deities that were worshipped in the same region. And thanks to current sciences we have now a better understanding of the culture, history and languages used in those times.
    Since Its beginnings Christianity had its opponents who questioned and refuted Jesus' attributes which were the birth announcement, baptism, teachings with disciples, death and resurrection. Even Justin Martyr's apology is quoted as saying
    “When we say that Jesus Christ was produced without sexual union, was crucified and died, and rose again, and ascended to heaven, we propound nothing new or different from what you believe regarding those whom you call the sons of Jupiter.” And

    “And if we even affirm that He was born of a virgin, accept this in common with what you accept of Perseus.”

    Gerald Massey deciphered at the Temple of Luxor (holy of holies) the announcement, conception by the holy ghost of Kneph, baptism by Anup, teachings with disciples, death and resurrection of Horus, a deity worshipped in Egypt and in the Mesopotamia culture for about 8,000 years before Christianity.
    Many other deities in that region display in the same order the same attributes Jesus's short story has.
    See how they are identical??

    Though many wouldn't proclaim Jesus never existed, he was rather considered a teacher of righteousness who even Celsus proclaims was a son of a Roman solider.
    Funny enough the writings of Celsus were burned by the early Christian censorship movement and only survive in the refutations from Origen.
    But luckily enough we have the Talamud who tells of Yeishu ha Notzri, son of a Mary, an early Jewish teacher who was considered by the temple authorities to be a troublemaking heretic, when they had enough of him put him on trial. He was convicted of heresy, sentenced to wander the city for 40 days, with a crier going before him, shouting that if anyone had reason why he should not be executed, they should come forward. When no did, he was stoned to death, and his body hung from a tree on the eve of passover, in 88 B.C.E. Note the death on the eve of passover.
    Don't forget the story of Attis who was also a prophet and teacher of righteousness who unfortunately met the same fate of other sons of gods. Now Israel in Jesus's time is known to have been a Hellenistic state, anyone who knows history and by reading Paul's letters knows this. They were deeply influenced by Hellenistic belief and culture thus allowing for the new deity story of Jesus to be easily absorbed into their culture.

    Funny enough all the attributes were not the telling of a human savior, rather the movements of solar objects in the sky that described in an anthropomorphized form the coming of winter (death) following the coming of spring (resurrection) that all cultures had celebrated for thousands of years until the political movement of Israel against its Roman oppressors presented the righteousness movement by the Notzri, Essences, Zealots and others a chance to make the "son of god" story real in order to empower the people to reject their current culture and ruler.
    So when you take into account the political status, current culture and beliefs in the region one can understand how the story of Jesus was developed by the earliest Christian sects who had a plan for a kingdom they thought was imminent.
    There is so much more to post but then I'd need at least about 5,000 web pages to place them all in......

  15. Atheism is NOT DEAD rather you people should be quiet.
    If you could somehow prove to me that God exists then I would fully convert myself to a God believing religion.

    How can I prove atheism? Can you adapt?
    -When you excercise, you build muscles right? Isn't that your body adapting to your lifestyle?
    -When you swim more, your lung capacity starts to grow, why? Because you are adapting to being more oxygen effecient.

    Through the millions of years of adaptation, evolution evolved.

    However can you say the same things for your beliefs? The concept of Heaven and Hell i agree with, that justice should be served right. But wouldn't we all go to hell then? Since we all kill innocent animals either to feed ourselves or for pleasure and convience. We all have told a lie. We all have said something bad. We all have done something bad.

    If you want a true religion, go with Muslim. I admire them being so nice to the world around them, and their desire of helping others.


    I don't really disagree with any religion, I think people are entitled to their beliefs, but now that you have violated this rule against atheism, I have to attack back at you. Don't do this, it's not worth your time or anyone's.

    We shall all find out one day when we die, what are you worrying about??

  16. Anonymous,
    Thanks for the comment.

    Mazel tov, you have written the most confused, self-contradictory, logically fallacious comment I have read in quite some time.

    If I thought that you were serious I would consider responding but, after all, it is April Fool's Day so--ok, I get it.

    aDios,
    Mariano
