Christian Fish Satire - Herbietown


Christian Fish Satire

I’d like to adorn my car with blatant atheist statements, as a way to rebel against popular culture and help show the world that it’s ok to be an atheist.

There’s a whole Wikipedia page devoted to the topic of parodies of the ichthys symbol.  As I understand it, the symbol started back in the earliest days of Christianity, when Christians were persecuted for their beliefs.   It was a way for believers to identify themselves to each other.  Two men would come together and make small talk.  One would casually scrape a curved line in the sand.  If the other were also a Christian, he would carve another line in the sand, imposed on the first, creating the ichthys symbol.  A secret handshake of sorts.

It’s a pretty cool history for a symbol.

Still, I would like to crush it with a creative atheist statement.  Sometime to bring a smile to people’s faces and help to secularize our culture.  I don’t want to be (too) offensive, but I do want to get people thinking.

Here’s the classic Christian fish and some alternatives that I’m thinking about buying.  Which one do you like best?

The Standard Christian Fish. I had one of these on my car in high school.

Throw the word Darwin in, add some feet, instant classic.

Add the world science and some extra fins? Not so compelling.

Better. Brings in the concept of Evolution. Still prefer the Darwin one.

 

This one is awesome. Feet and a DNA strand. Unfortunately I think the DNA strand is too small to see from far away.

If it weren’t for the cheese 80′s movie reference, I’d buy this one.

This one is just weird. Satan isn’t real either, you idiot.

This isn’t exactly a fish, but it’s worth mentioning. I love this religion. The Flying Spaghetti Monster religion. I am devout.

Blows my mind. Pretty offensive to a Christian, I would imagine. But really funny if you have a good sense of humor.

And, finally, the one I really want. Less than $10 on Amazon.
