Overloading God’s Servers

Atheists v. GodOn Sunday, November 8, atheists will launch a coordinated prayer attack against God. Nonbelievers around the world will hurl a bevy of meaningless prayers at God, coordinated by Facebookin an effort to inundate God’s prayer receptors and force them offline. The offensive is based on the DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks that have been staged against IranGeorgia, and the Global Atheist Convention website.

In true nonbeliever fashion, athiest blogger PZ Myers responded, “I won't be able to join in, because whatever I have planned for that time, whatever it may be, will be far more interesting and productive than babbling to an invisible man.” A commenter on the Facebook page gave his RSVP as, “i'm probably gonna forget, but if i don't, sure.”

If any prayers go unanswered on November 8, this coordinated attack could be the reason why.

(Thanks, Net Effect.)

Atheists are equal with fundamentalists.

I think atheists are more fundamentalist than some so-called "religious" people. Ok- they don't believe in God. Fine. But by doing stuff like this, how are they different from the Bible-thumpers who tell you you're going to hell?

LOL!! Thanks I needed this. . . . Even Satan acknowledges the existance of God. What's so unique about non-belivers parying to the Lord? I love that their finite minds can't seem to grasp the concept of the infinite & eternal nature of God.

You know, the fact that non-believers are actually acknowledging God, or what they view Him as, is quite contradictory. I will not be surprised if God turns this around on them and answers some of their prayers.

What part of "infinite" do they not understand?
