This is Amber Heard:
And she becomes even hotter when you find out she’s an atheist.
(Hey, USA Today said she was. It must be true.)
Brent Rasmussen agrees with me on her scrumptiousness. Which is why he made a plea for her to become our spokesperson.
(Ok, just one more gratuitous pic:)
Why do I bring her up?
What are you reading right now?
A really great book by Christopher Hitchens called The Portable Atheist, US News about some discoveries on some secrets of Christianity, and a book about Pakistan.
I saw your profile on the website “Friendly Atheist.” So, that’s your thing huh? I mean, that you’re um… practicing atheism?
Ha. Yeah, that’s a great oxymoron. No, I’m not a practicing atheist. I’m a practicing human and I know how that sounds but I’m learning everything I can about being human. I was raised in a strict Catholic environment but the only thing I feel comfortable saying that I know is that I can’t know. I will never prescribe to an organization that claims to tell me how to do anything. I’m not anti “higher power” so you could call me agnostic. Whatever, call me anything but I will never be a “religious” person.
There was an open letter on the site asking you to be the Atheist spokeswoman. Pretty goddamn funny.
You have to love the irony — an organization based on the belief system of telling you not to believe in any organization based on belief systems…
Do you think if you weren’t raised in that crazy Catholic environment you’d feel the same? Anyone I know that grew up Catholic is so against it now.
I’d like to thank the way I was raised for giving me enough knowledge about organized religion to make the adult decision to live the rest of my life without it. I don’t think you can believe or not believe in anything unless you know a lot about it. I know Christianity, especially Catholicism, like the back of my hand. And my education has given me the freedom to know that it is completely absurd for me to believe it.
A few things:
“Friendly Atheist” is not an oxymoron![Thanks to those who pointed out that “friendly atheist” is not what she was referring to. You win!]
- The “open letter” was on Brent’s site, not mine.
- Atheism is not an organization. We don’t tell you anything. Individuals, however, may try to persuade you against religion.
- Amber, I still love you. Marry me?
- Pretty please?
Oh, to be Amber’s Heard’s personal Portable Atheist…
