Surely, we're not supposed to believe she stays so skinny eating a baby of that size.

Is snopes really that associated with atheism by the general public?

Is it bad that I own that book and that shirt?

Not the general public, I don't think, but rather a subset of religious people at whom Atheist Barbie is poking fun -- the kind of people who think atheists eat babies for lunch.

Depends. What are you having for lunch?

Oh, that's why there's a baby poking out of the lunch bag. I'm glad I don't live in the USA...

I should have said, "the kind of people who might be satirically depicted as being likely to believe that atheists eat babies."

I don't know that any religious people actually believe atheists eat babies. Many do seem to believe that atheists lack any moral compass, though. They don't seem to realize that their failure to grasp the concept of following a moral code without expectation of reward or punishment says more about them than it does about atheists.

I saw that the other day and meant to post it. But I got lost reading the blog it's linked to and never got around to it.

Ooh, yes. To take it further, consider the question asked in A Clockwork Orange; can people be considered good if they have no other option but to be good? What if they are good only out of fear?

Or as Satan said (well sang) in the South Park movie, "Without evil there can be no good, so it must be good to be evil sometimes."

The XKCD store. The image is based off of one of the comics.

Perhaps not the general public. But far-right Christian Fundamentalists do associate it with atheism because it debunks so much Christian glurge. And to them if you debunk X-tian glurge you must be an advocate of atheism.

I mean "what about the missing day?"

"What about the missionary who was protected by 25 guards because his home church had 25 people praying for him?"

"Doesn't all of that prove that God's existence is an incontrovertible fact?"
