Atheist camp to give children 'godless alternative


According to the UK newspaper The Guardian, Richard Dawkins is helping to fund an atheist summer camp for children. No kidding. Imagine how exciting this will be—

Children will learn about how they were an accident—No, not mom and dad’s accident, but a cosmic accident! They will learn how life is meaningless! How there is no ultimate foundation for morality! And they will learn that love has no eternal significance, but is only a biological impulse compelling us to protect and perpetuate the species! How comforting. How pathetic.

On the other hand, these all do make for very scary campfire stories.

“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”—Matthew 18:6
