Atheist holiday tomorrow!

It is the 24th anniversary of Bill Hicks death. Bill Hicks died Feb 26, 1994.

I plan to treat the day like an atheist easter. I'll be placing Lincoln Logs in my kids sock drawers and telling them the goldfish left them. If you don't get that, then you really need to listen to Bill Hicks unbeliever!

Here are a few clips that touch on his angry relationship with Christianity.

Enjoy, and remember, you can't go to hell if you are already in Oklahoma.

2. The best thing about being an atheist

It takes so little of your time.

Thanks, Bill Maher.

4. I love Bill Hicks!

listening to flying saucer tour, at one point the crowd isn't really responding to him so he sings a little tune: "y'all are about to win the election for the worst fucking audience I've ever faced, ever, ever, ever!"

I love it! I often think about how he would feel about these times we live in. I'm sure he'd have plenty to say. He's out there right now waiting on us to evolve so we can get on the spaceships and get off this fuckin planet.

5. That always amazed me about him...

 

He would dig his way in with an audience and then win them back. There would be moments when I was thinking, so this is the night they kill him, then POP, he's back on top.

His criticism of republicans and religion still stands up, too.
