Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," serving the large community of downsized deities since 2005! We put the "Pan" in pantheon!
Sunday's Washington Post had an article about atheists and about how many people have abandoned Christianity since 9/11. Apparently one by-product of the Islamic terrorism attacks has been to make thinking people question The Big I-Am, if you know who I mean.
We at "The Gods Are Bored" endorse that, of course! We just don't think atheism is the only answer. Polytheism works just as well, or better. No one has ever been heard saying, "I slay thee in the name of Fintan, the Salmon of Wisdom." And, if indeed there are heavens out there in the great beyond, Fintan's swimming along in one of them, happy as a ... well ... a salmon.
The Washington Post article said that some atheists have gone so far as to ink out "In God We Trust" on their money.
Now, here's an awesomely splendid idea! Except let's tweak it a little.
Today I pulled out my wallet, extracted the four lousy dollars I had to my name, and added an "s" to "In God We Trust." All my money now says "In GodS We Trust!"
What a wonderful way to honor all those bored gods who wish they could work at the U.S. mint just to get the government pension!
If you get a dollar bill that says "In GodS We Trust," you'll know it came from the hand of Anne Johnson. Or better yet, click your Bic and join the party! DIY!
Especially if you live in Kansas.
(I'm still laughing at the thought of an immortal deity pulling a government pension. Then again, no government lasts forever ... but it might be a fun ride for awhile!)
