    1. Revelation 5:5, you buncha heathen!

      “And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.”

      If only his followers would open a book now and then.

      1. I really prefer “Gnu Atheism” to “New Atheism”. It highlights the silliness of atheism being “new” rather than “old” to the title. I think I will use it from now on instead of “New Atheism”.

  1. … & as Flanders & Swann sang
    “I’m a gnu a-g-nother gnu
    I wish I could g-nash my teeth at you”.

  2. I eagarly await Chris Mooney’s “elevation” of this incontrovertible photographic proof to a post on the incivility of New Atheists… ūüôā

  3. Oh. I thought I saw that, but I didn’t riddle it – I didn’t kgnow the right prognunciation then.


  4. Come to think of it, I’ve never heard of a gnu believing in god(s).

    Is gnu atheism unanimous?

  5. I would be “splitting my sides with laughter” too, but can a rotund object be said to have sides? I fear I shall simply burst, and then where would I be?

  6. I like this (ok, “my”) definition (previously posted here) of Gnu Atheism, based on the Wikipedia entry for New Atheist:

    Gnu Atheism refers to a 21st century movement in atheism. The term is applied, affectionately, to outspoken individuals who share their ideas freely on the interwebs without of restricting them to best-selling books or academic journal articles. These include PZ Myers, Sam Harris, Daniel C. Dennett, Richard Dawkins, Victor J. Stenger and Christopher Hitchens. They and other supporters of the Gnu Atheism movement are but critics of religion. They state that human knowledge has reached the point where it is no longer appropriate to base truth claims or moral positions on religion, superstition, or religion-based fanaticism.

    1. spelt G-N-U? The gnicest piece of gnature in the zoo?
      Or – No gnus is good gnus?
      Would ‘wildebeest atheist’ do as well?
