No worries, you ain't heavy,... you're my brother....
We'll make sure that Agnostics always have a place. Don't ever think you don't belong.

That's exactly how I feel. I'm not electing myself supreme chancellor of anything.

I hope not too, but really, you can't make a joke out of Atheist/Agnostic clan. It would really hurt flame wars.

Many people who are well-read in their Atheist literature will get many of the ideas suggested already, but we need to find something that doesn't require any previous knowledge. The JCers had it easy. Anybody able to get online knows who Jesus is.
Ditto, that's my hang-up too. it's hard to be witty if you're the only one who gets it.
