Awesome! How the universe formed from nothing

A change to the Beliefs & Ideals of Bangism


After quite a long but largely enjoyable afternoon discussing the religion of Bangism in a Facebook Group named Atheist v Theist I have had to make a slight change to the Beliefs and Ideals page of the Bangism website. A rather clever guy named Paul Grace pointed out that the argument for infinite expansion and contraction of the universe would only hold true if the universe was part of a closed system. If it was losing or gaining energy from somewhere else the argument could not be made that the universe obeys Einsteins Law of Conservation of energy.

Atheist Humor


An atheist buys an ancient lamp at an auction, takes it home, and begins to polish it. Suddenly, a genie appears, and says, “I’ll grant you three wishes, Master.” The atheist says, “I wish I could believe in you.” The genie snaps his fingers, and suddenly the atheist believes in him. The atheist says, “Wow. I wish all atheists would believe this.” The genie snaps his fingers again, and suddenly atheists all over the world begin to believe in genies. “What about your third wish?” asks the genie. “Well,” says the atheist, “I wish for a billion dollars.” The genie snaps his fingers for a third time, but nothing happens. “What’s wrong?” asks the atheist. The genie shrugs and says, “Just because you believe in me, doesn’t necessarily mean that I really exist.

An Atheist dies and, to his surprise, finds himself met by St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.
St. Peter reviews the man’s record and tells him, “Well, even though you didn’t believe in any deities, you led a good, moral life. It is especially good that you did so without expecting any eternal reward. So we are going to let you into Heaven.
St. Peter then assigns an angel to take the Atheist on an indoctrination tour. During the tour, the Atheist sees Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, other Atheists, and people of all religions. He also notices a high wall in a far corner of Heaven. When the tour ends, the angel asks him if he has any questions. The man asks, “What’s behind the high wall in the corner?
The angel replies, “That’s where we put the Christians. They think they’re the only people up here.”

1st International Bangist Convention


Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman will be the location for the 1st International Bangist Convention planned for March 2014

Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman will be the location for the 1st International Bangist Convention planned for March 2014

Plans are in place to hold the 1st International Bangist convention on Grand Cayman. The conference will be held early in 2014 and will allow Bangists to meet fellow believers and discuss the theology of Bangism. According to US tax laws travel to an out-of-town convention of a charitable or religious organization can be written off as a charitable contribution if you’re a chosen representative to the convention. For example, if you’re selected by your church (Bangist) to be a delegate to a national or international religious convention, you can deduct the cost of transportation, lodging and meals. If you’re not an official delegate, but just attending the convention on your own, none of the costs are deductible. Anyone interested in becoming a delegate at the Bangist convention please leave details here.

What religion are you?


I found a very interesting site on the internet that uses a series of faith/belief related questions to determine what religion best suits your beliefs. After completing the quiz the religion that bests suits my beliefs (for some reason they don’t include Bangism!) is Unitarian Universalism. I need to read up more on this religion as I have never heard of it. Click here to take the quiz. It would be interesting if after taking the quiz you posted your results here stating what your current religion is and what religion the quiz said best matches your beliefs.
