This came out of nowhere. It's about time, I suppose.

I can not believe the people cheering in the streets, as if his death will make any difference. The guy is now a martyr. Which is worse I think (I hope I am proved wrong though)
Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

I have just seen his image on a Tayto crisp and there's a woman in Sahand-i-Kamal was cured of whistling after she said 'death to the cursed non-believers' nine times in his memory.

It's going to be an interesting religion.

You get mindless rabble everywhere unfortunately.

A couple of atheist-oriented blogs have commented on this:

Jerry Coyne over at Why Evolution is True

P.Z. Myers at Pharyngula

and of course,

PZ Meyers words my sentiment very well. It doesn't change a jot.

Thanks for that Ygern
