Nonsense of the Day

I'd previously thought the biggest disadvantage of being an atheist was "no one to talk to during orgasm." But this Facebook notice, from a follower of "the Atheist Founation [sic] of Australia and the Global Atheist Convention," makes me wonder whether there might be some cognitive impairment as well:
This is a call to all non-believers and advocates for freedom of speech to join us in a global co-ordinated minute of prayer with the aim of inundating God (in this context, the Christian god, God, as distinct from the Greek god, Zeus, the Egyptian god, Ra etc etc) with so many useless prayers that it causes his divineness to go offline as as result of our own DDOS ('Divine' Denial of Service).

The prayer minute will be at exactly 8pm (Eastern Standard Time) and 9am (Greenwich Mean Time) on Sunday 8 November 2009.

The prayer can be about anything you want (but say it as frequently as possible in the minute we have assigned to ensure DDOS is achieved) or to whomever god you want. Its mostly directed at the Christian god so as to ensure we don't get too many return to senders from other gods.
Interesting that it's more anti-Christian than anti-god. Illogical that these atheists seem to presume the god(s) they deny exist. But I can't wait to learn whether knocking god off Internet access worked.

Ah, well. Nice to see the world is still filled with idiots, like the soon to be deleted spamming fool above.

Oh, and, regarding the topic itself, there is a truly absurd component to it.

A) God does exist. Do you really, really want to piss him off?

B) God does not exist. You've just wasted time for no purpose of any kind.

C) In both cases -- you're acking the serious possibility of God really existing. Isn't that a violation of Atheist union rules?

It's a lose-lose-lose scenario...
