A god doesn't need one.
But if one does, you and "Thinking" are surely in the Yellow Pages. Make sure you have an eye catching ad.
In other words it is okay with Dave if his God acts the same as a all powerful psychopathic 5 year old that will just as likely feed the cat as he will behead it.

So you believe Atheism is true because you just mentioned it.

Either that or you were just full of sh!t beforehand.

So does SuckDuck Zone.

Clever name, though.

One who sucks ducks has a hard time thinking of a catchy moniker, I would think.

I'd rather just say I'm a non-believer because I know Buck *really* struggles with complete definitions.
