Atheism can exist with or without the knowledge of theism, and doesn’t require the ignorance of it.

Because religion has convinced people to believe in more bullshit than anything a businessman ever could. I’ve seen the shorter clips from this before, but I never saw the full video until now.
Do you really think Yahweh would make all the prophets guys if he were more attracted to girls? I think Yahweh is secretly gay and Mary was his beard. Maybe he even let one of the Angel’s, maybe Gabriel, fuck Mary because it was too disgusting for him.
