Hell, they even invented baseball and ice cream; the crowning glory of humanity.

SOME people claim that only God could create baseball.  Just ask George Will.  SOME might claim the same for ice cream (though between you and me, if it doesn't have cherries or peaches in it, it isn't worth eating).

Professional basketball, on the other paw, is the devil's work...

And even the devil won't claim Pro Wrestling.  Or Nascar.

I actually suspect that might just possibly maybe be true.  Given proof of existence, of course.

Remember, per Ensign Chekov, Russians invented super heroes first!

Some people claim god created aliens.  We both know that is wrong.  And don't assume all aliens are good.  Or bad.  But you can assume George Will is bad--he was created by god.  Baseball was created by the best of the aliens for the best of humans. :)))  As for ice cream, one can put in pounds of cherries or peaches (or even both)--or any of a bunch of other stuff.  Aliens must have invented ice cream--the same aliens that created baseball!  :))
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Oh.
Well, maybe not Trump--I can't see anything actually creating that piece of shit.

And the woman is the Hard-to-See Woman.

She may be hard to see but she's easy to look at!

Chump was invented by right-wing media, I think.

What right-wing media ... you mean that Hillary, who was boosted by the media ... is a Right winger?  There is Bolshevik media and Menshevik media ... there is no right-wing media.

Most people think that Federal Reserve notes are actual money, instead of a failed form of toilet paper.  What is real, and what people think is real, is widely variant ... I thought an atheist could appreciate that in a nation of Church zombies ;-)

Church folks are certainly zombies, according to atheists, because they are the most needy in the brain department ;-)

Not a great comparison, though, because they tend to neither like nor want brains.

That is primarily a Christian problem, thanks to Pauline theology.  Jews and Muslims wouldn't agree ... being smart is not anti-religion.
