2014 will go down in history as the year of Christian Mime.
If they all get buried in the same cemetery would it be a mime field?

Don't bury...recycle. A mime is a terrible thing to waste.

With a 16 million dollar donation I will personally build a mime glass dome for them.

The religious would say that without God, you wouldn't even have a universe in the first place.

At least making claims without evidence.
They seem to think though that the universe is evidence of god, yet not realizing that they are just moving back the "mystery" by a notch appearing to think they do not seen to explain where god came from.

The universe is not evidence of a God, any more than it's evidence for universe creating pixies or the Great Green Arkleseizure.

There's no reason to believe God is any more real than any other fictional being. Hence, I will stick to my opinion that belief in God is wrong until I see evidence to the contrary.

I don't disagree but you are arguing with people who have been taught their whole life that the universe is evidence of god.

Well, yeah, and there's no God to remove from the universe either. But that's not the point. If the purpose of the image is to make atheists chuckle and pat themselves on the back for being so smart, it's fine. But any religious person who sees that is going to say "Um, no, that's self-evidently wrong, these atheists are so silly".

Am I arguing with those people?

It's up to you. How do you want to use the image?

Of course not! I assumed you were an atheist, or at the very least a fellow traveler.

My point is, I wasn't arguing with anybody. I'm just expressing my viewpoint on an Internet message board.

I wish there was a panacea. . . Some kind of argument that Christians would actually accept.
