That is great, Mark!!!  According to FSM, he has two meatballs! ha ha ha

I have run into, "Oh, you are too nice to be an Atheist.  You have god in you somewhere because you are too kind".

Anyone else ever get that one? A writer from Freethought Arizona relates his story here-

I've gotten that a few times- the most recent was from a nice person I met at an animal welfare event. Had a nice conversation, but I guess I went too far; after saying the "lone atheist commandment" was "Don't be an Asshole" (which the person thought was amusing), I launched into my questioning as to why God is portrayed as a male figure. "Does it have testicles?"

Apparently that was one too far, because the person said I wasn't following the "lone commandment". I smoothed it over somewhat but overall the conversation ended sort of badly.
