Why Atheists Still Blasphemy

It takes a very special and strong-minded atheist to jump up and down with their hand clasped under their other armpit and shout, “Oh, random-fluctuations-in-the-space-time-continuum!” or “Aaargh, primitive-and-outmoded-concept on a crutch!”

Men At Arms, Terry Pratchett, 1997.

  1. Just love Terry Pratchett.

    I've always found it ironic when my Jewish friends use the word christ as an expression of profanity. Something my grandfather's generation did. I can't see why that should mean anything to them either way.

  2. Much agreed– such good stories that reward thinking about them, reading and re-reading. It's amazing how different the books are now compared to just five years ago!
