    I mean, if we really want to get technical....

    Lucifarianism or Satanism....is Christianity/Judeo/whatever. Satan is a judeo/christian concept. Recognizing the same figures as Christians would in turn, sort of imply that they themselves are, kind of christian

    Funny if you think about it.

    It's a very poor design. C'mon it's Satan, you can let your imagination run wild with the personification of evil.

    But this looks like an anthropomorphic hippie Rudolph.

I accept that my view of the universe cannot yet be proven, and perhaps never will be, and I do not judge people that choose to have faith. Please don't try to act like many atheists are not extremely intolerant and obnoxious. Many of them are just as bad as the religious zealots they hate so much.
    I said atheists were human didn't I? faced with irrational behaviour it can be a trial sometimes.

    What does the the question about the possible existence of gods have to do with a view of the universe? It seems to me that adding that just complicates matters uselessly.

    However your version of atheism doesn't match mine. I think it is a shame that this happens even among atheists. It is possibly a holdover from when theists were in charge of definitions and dictionaries and it certainly leads to much confusion especially among theists.

    I don't understand the purpose of this statue but if it's designed to offend Christians they're more likely to just ignore it. It seems rather juvenile.

    Having a religious experience is simialr to a sexual experience in the sense that it really difficult to explain to virgins. In this case the atheists are the virgins.

    It will probably offend parents more than anything with those 2 kids at his side.

    The idea is to point out how ridiculous it is to have a religious statue paid for by the government. In order to try to not violate the First Amendment, they opened it to ALL religions. Well, all religions are getting in on it.

    I think the atheists should give their statue design. Nothing. Just empty space. Now that might get done!

    So the point is to demonstrate ridiculousness with more ridiculousness? That must seem like a win-win for the people who installed this statue.

    It seems they must have a lot of time on their hands.

    that is complete BS.
    most atheists were theists before investigating whether their beliefs were rationally justified. They weren't so they stopped believing.

    This statue hasn't been installed. It's just a drawing.
