FreeThought Fort Wayne

        Be Reasonable

The First Ever Freethought Fort Wayne Contest!

Posted by JD on April 12, 2008

I noticed no one else has posted a contest yet here, so I get to be the first! I plan on giving a small token to the winner, but I don’t know what it will be yet. Bragging rights come along with it.

I got this idea from the evangelicalatheist, so he deserves some of the credit. I think he deleted the original contest, but luckily I write down most everything. This is a Haiku contest. The following are some of my entries in his contest. The only rule is that it needs to revolve around religion, atheism, science or philosophy. That leaves it pretty wide open. I will be the final judge (bribes accepted), but I want you guys and gals to tell me which ones you think are the best. I will announce the winner next weekend so get crackin’ and have fun!

My examples:

Bush chokes on pretzel

Atheists briefly wonder:

Might there be a God?

Critical of cults?

Not critical of your faith?

Hypocritical!

Creationism

The Spanish Inquisition

Ignorance is bliss?

Yawning brings demon

Sneezes exorcise demon

Bless you! Body cleansed.

The root of evil?

Money given to churches

to uproot evil

The Old Testament

was just called The Testament

before the new one

Apologist in

missionary position

uses bible belt

From Adam and Eve

to a virgin that conceives

why should I believe?

Hitler had one nut.

Testicular fortitude

was not his strong suit

    Great idea, Theo! And I love your examples–very witty. How about this one?

    Kids call him “Baldy”
    So God sends ferocious bear
    Damn kids taunt no more

  2. hey agno

    Took care of the double post issue. Looks like WordPress spammed your first comments. Other than my comment no one would ever know there was a problem

    Very good agno! I like it a lot.

    I’m surprised I didn’t lure Skeptigator into posting a few already. I figured I hooked him after he said he was OCD on anagrams.

    I just thought of a good one…

    What Would Jesus Drink?
    Try the new Coca-Cola
    Praise the Lord, Amen

  6. Lim’ricks and Haikus
    At poetry I do suck
    No reason to try
