For those whose last supper will be their last:

I recently came across The World Famous Atheist Cook Book, which of course is probably only “famous” among a few choice Atheists as there aren’t very many copies around. It was put out by the Freedom from Religion Foundation, and one site where I found it online says it’s for those who “prefer to do their frying in the here-and-now.” What I’m afraid these people don’t realize is the joke is on them. The Introduction has a fictitious quote by the Wizard of Oz, who says, “You atheists have so much going for you – intelligence, integrity, courage, erudition… But what you don’t have is a cookbook!” and goes on to call them “freethinkers.” Interesting they should use a quote from a movie, because like the movie folks they’re good at patting themselves on the back for how smart they are and what a good job they’re doing. Perhaps next we’ll have the Atheist Intellectual Awards. I would suggest, though, that the Atheist gang, rather than cooking up some “Blasphemous Bran Waffles,” instead watch “The Wizard of Oz” again, and maybe it will sink in that the man behind the curtain has them royally duped.
