   "Our first idea was to make Christian shoes with water in the souls - so you could walk on water - but it didn't really sit with our own beliefs. So we decided to do something about what we believed in - which was nothing"

Well, the "Christian" companies have been using cheesy marketing gimmicks to sell crap to eachother for years. I don't see why the Atheists should feel left out when they sell their crap.

"Darwin Loves?"

Darwin was just a scientist with some theories. For all we know he was a hateful son of a biatch.

Funny, I've always thought of golf shoes as being "Christian".

Must be the spikes.

I never trust a business that advertises that it is Christian. I don't have any experience with atheist business, but somehow I think I will feel the same way.

If you make a good product at the right price, I will buy. I give two shiats about your beliefs.

By all accounts, Darwin was a pretty cool guy. The assholes were the ones that tried to apply his biological theories to socioeconomic practice, and the ones who thought killing all the mentally ill and disabled would evolve humanity into a higher being.

My dad's a lawyer, and he says that if the first words out of a client's mouth are, "I'm a good Christian but..." cut and run if you can. They'll be nothing but trouble.

Based on his letters, he seemed quite the gentleman. But then again, just about everyone would write like a gentleman (or woman) at that time, so this may not be strong evidence. ;)

Are the shoes comfortable and do they wear well? Also, is that all the styles they have?

I'm surprised there isn't more exploitation of this. Like if you go to the produce section of a store and see the fruit, then the organic fruit, then the fruit picked by Christians for Christians.

If these shoes are supposed to promote the lack of belief, can they also try to promote the lack of fuglyness?!

You know... I don't believe in God and I normally think religion is silly in general, but it's sometimes humbling and important to remember that there are plenty of buffoons on my side too.

ha-Satan "the adversary". So I guess if anyone walks into your office and says "I'm a good Christian," the correct response is, "and I'm a good advocate. Just like in Job."

THIS


At the age where the really important questions about shoes are referred to my feet...
"Do these make you happy?"
Screw it if they 'look fat'...the question is, ARE THEY COMFY?

Age has its benefits...I keep telling myself this.

AdolfOliverPanties: "Darwin Loves?"

Darwin was a cool guy. He liked and respected just about everyone. But I don't think he "loved" people he did not know personally.

I'm a bit uncertain what it really means to "love" people you don't know. It seems derogatory to the concept if there's no actual relationship. I mean, I have all kinds of respect for Obama and wish him well. I'd love to have him over for dinner. But I don't "love" him. That's reserved for actual two-way relationships, isn't it? If you "love" someone because of media, things you heard through third parties, isn't that, like, stalking??

Read the first sentence of the article.

Atheists who market their beliefs are just as lame as Christians who do the same. Keep it to yourself and mind your own damn business.

Kindergarten theologies can generally be refuted by disciplines such as information theory. More sophisticated theologies must be rejected by faith alone.
