Works for me!

    I bet the mike would get cut if anyone tried.

    Any takers?

    I LOVE “Thanks for nothin'” as a replacement for “amen”. I hope I remember to use that one day.

  • Drew M.

    I like this one.

    Dammit Mike is winning me over.

  • Helgi Laxdal

    DAMN well done Mike ! KUDOS to you, and keep up the great work ! 😉

    I would start with “Our father who art not in heaven”.

  • This is greater blasphemy against Bob Dylan than it is against God.

    To me the whole thing seams less atheistic and more angry with god.
    I don’t believe Mike is angry at god, however I suspect the angry at god crowd that calls themselves atheists are the proud christians of tomorrow (and today) that claim to know god exists because they were once atheists and bla bla bla.

  • To me the whole thing seems less atheistic and more angry with god.

    This.

    Exactly, it’s an appeal to a heavenly father.

    “To me the whole thing seams less atheistic and more angry with god. ”

    I agree. Also, the line, “And Earth feels the opposite of heaven.” I don’t get this at all. So, this guy believes in heaven, and he claims to know what it feels like?

    Angry at god, Angry at the world. I’m neither, so this wouldn’t work as my anthem.

  • Personally, I really like it.

    I don’t think he “really” believes in some god up in heaven. I don’t even see it as being “angry” with god. I think he’s being facetious, sarcastically showing how stupid the Lord’s Prayer is, how we can save ourselves, thanks. Thanks for nothin’, in fact.

    Just my take on it.

    I don’t care how he defines his unbelief. He’s still a dick. Until I see a video that is actually funny, I wouldn’t recommend quoting him.

    It’s been a long time coming, an updated Lewds prayer. The old one, you know the one that’s been said a billion times has never worked. Actually, come to think of it, what does the lewds prayer actually request? It’s a bit like 6 of the ten commandments, that is, totally useless and totally irrelevent.

  • meh. it’s a tad muddled and more about sounding like the original than really making a clear point. i’ll pass and come up with something else, thanks.

  • JJR

    I like it.

    The atheist position is not just there’s no reasonable evidence to justify a belief in god(s), it’s also pointing out that proposed Gods, like the God of the Bible, EVEN IF they DID exist, are moral monsters and dicks, unworthy of praise or emulation, much less worship.
