I started this group because the majority of people I met on this site had no sense of humor....but most of my favorite humor came from atheists. Which one are you?

I know this guy! Dr Herb Silverman is in a meme? I went to see one of his lectures, great person and funny! I just signed up on this site and yeah love to laugh, so i'd like to hang with this group.

Welcome! Have fun & let loose!

Gene Wilder for sure. Born and raised Jewish. Its a culture not a religion.

All of them.. I am not jewish but I love Gene W. These are sooo good and I felt the same way when I got on this site too at first. This is my happy place I go to every day.. MEMEEES rule! Thanks Eric 🙂

@EricTrommater To add to what everyone else said very eloquently, I love this group. I love stopping by during my long day and checking out what people have shared or are talking about, and smiling/laughing. Thanks for making the group and making a little community to call home. You guys are all awesome.

Mofferatu Level 7 May 10, 2018

Totally agree.. One of the BEST groups on here.. imo. We need this sort of thing because of the all heavy, depressing, concrete thinking that goes on in some of the other groups.. ish, I want no part of that crap.

All of the above, 'cept that last one.

Perhaps, just perhaps you are the one lacking in humour.

Jolanta Level 8 May 10, 2018

??? You want to explain why you said this?

@mistymoon77 "I started this group because the majority of people I met on this site had no sense of humor..." Does that explain it to you.

@Jolanta when you said "YOU", that is leaving things open ended. Eric's name is on the ownership of this site, never saw yours anywhere on here so that is a bit confusing.

@mistymoon77 It is all in the started this group because the majority of people I met on this site had no sense of humor..." Surely that must explain it. And my name is Jolanta.

@Jolanta so you are the moderator of this meme group? Why isn't your name listed anywhere, this is the first time I have heard about it and I have been in this group since Eric got it up and running.

@Jolanta Repeating what Eric stated explains nothing. He was stating his position & you are parroting. Have you taken your meds today? & no, @mistymoon77, she is not a mod, she is just a bit confused. Maybe if you showed her something shiny she would go away!

If you're going to compare atheists with some of those hilarious tele-evangelists then yeah atheists do appear a more somber lot

I agree,I believe there is a slight difference between a realist and a pessimist .

No George Carlin? Why even bother?

"Religion convinced the world that there's an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do. And there's 10 things he doesn't want you to do or else you'll to to a burning place with a lake of fire until the end of eternity. But he loves you! ...And he needs money! He's all powerful, but he can't handle money!"

Hitch and Harris. Thanks for digging these out. All profound keepers?

I think all religious stuff is hilarious.

Zactly!

Though I appreciate Gene Wilder's sentiments, I have to say I actually connect with all the first four. They are all some of the reasons & realizations that both moved me to atheism & confirm me in that outlook!

phxbillcee Level 9 May 10, 2018

Ditto!

"because the majority of people I met on this site had no sense of humor."

Ouch. Considering the number of members in this group, I'd say you're exaggerating a tad bit. 😉 I have found that most active people on this site do have a sense of humor, which is why your group has been so successful.

Not everyone in memes has a sense of humor

I must disagree...I found a few hundred who enjoy humor, but my reaction beyond this group has been very hostile. Look at the reaction to @phxbillcee 's level 9 status...I mean the man has been nothing but a great contributor to this site, but because he did it with humor....they say he cheated. Somehow his accomplishments don't count.

@EricTrommater "Well, I've got to hand it to you, Eric. You've learned how to become the #1 top contributor on this site without much thought or work. LOL"....hmmm who said that?

@Blindbird let it go....normies....they....we talked about this.

@Blindbird
I find it funny that some don't find it funny?

surely you jest. lol

@Emme They asked the wrong person to be offensive and it not mattering

@Emme, @Blindbird Hey, I laugh at most and all of my own. Who you be talkin' bout?

@EricTrommater Thank you for your support! I feel the same about you & how you've grown this group. & just a small note to @VictoriaNotes, if you will note, he stated in his header "site", not "group". This group has attracted mainly the ones from the site that DO have a sense of humor, both about the world & just as importantly, about themselves. That's one reason this group has not only the largest but some of the most loyal & caring followers.

@zorialoki
Nope. Honestly, if I don't find something funny, I just scroll on. There's no need to piss on everyone's parade. This is supposed to be fun.?

It's funny af & i love you guyz!?

@EricTrommater what?!!!

@EricTrommater

"I found a few hundred who enjoy humor, but my reaction beyond this group has been very hostile."

Eric, you quoted me and you did not grasp the humor either. There was a reason why I wrote "LOL". It was a bit of banter, and you gave me the impression that you were having fun with it, too. Most people here do have a sense of humor, but I think that what they preferred not to see is their feed clogged up with memes every day. This site is Agnostic.com, not Memes or Us. You even admitted you tended to proliferate because you're a salesman.

Also, I'm a bit stunned that there's been hostility towards Bill. People have jested, but so did you. I for one, appreciate his contributions and have taken the time to read the articles he posts. He is very much appreciated here, as are you, but I don't think its fair to label the majority of people here as lacking a sense of humor because it comes across as demeaning.

@phxbillcee "if you will note, he stated in his header "site", not "group".

Bill, if you will note, my comment was about this site, whose members have contributed to making this group the most popular.

@Blindbird "Not everyone in memes has a sense of humor"

That may be true, but not every meme is intended to be humorous.

@EricTrommater I totally agree.. There are a lot of very hostile, overly critical, cynical so called "know it alls" that I really have NO TIME for on here (this site). I tried to reach out through some other avenues on this site and got no where beside shot down, totally misunderstood and down right rude remarks for no apparent reason. We all have to agree that we will not always agree on some things and that is just how it goes, there is no getting around it. So I don't bother with the other areas of discussion much anymore. That is probably why I didn't reach levels so quick as some may have. But Bill and Eric, and others in this group, have been great supporters, we laugh, we have fun, we contribute the way we want to do it on our own terms and that is the way it should be.

@Blindbird yes I do agree with you.... there have been a few that just from I could tell, were a bit either offended, didn't get the darkness of some and perhaps it just wasn't their thing, then they just need to either leave the group or not respond, it's really that simple.

@Eric Trommater, I'm glad you said that about @phxbillcee, He's has to be the one that helped me the most, And I'm not saying the rest of you guys didn't help a lot too. One of best things I like is how he gives likes to help others. I allready gave my 10000 likes and Now it doesn't give me any more points. But so what I don't care. I can have fun and help others.

@mistymoon77 I'm glad you've found a group where you feel you can be yourself. I've been here since last September, and have not seen "a lot of very hostile, overly critical, cynical so called "know it alls." I've only seen a few, and I tend to read more posts and comments than make posts and comments. But for the most part, this site has great members, and I have enjoyed being here.

@Captnron59 Thanks for the support & kind words! Now, pass that spliff!

@VictoriaNotes, I think part of the problem is that some of the folks that are either self-righteous or lack a sense of humor are very vocal about their "issues" when things are not just the way they like it. It tends to lend more weight & presence to them than is really warranted. I think it is more of an optical illusion, so to speak, & that the majority of the people on this site are open & accepting. Now, some have come here with a more 'serious' bent to their viewpoints, & they may tend to avoid this group, which is fine & reasonable. To each their own, I avoid the "Conservative' group & the 'Fetish' group, for instance as neither has any interest for me. However, that handful of very vocal, 'my way or the highway' types on here, the ones that are SJW's only when it suits them, do exist here. Of course, it's much worse in RL. Not only is this group a haven, but even with the perpetually butt-hurt minority, so is this whole site. I am eternally (if I can use that term, LOL) grateful to admin for putting it together & allowing us, for free, to play in his backyard!

@phxbillcee So well said, Bill.

@VictoriaNotes Thanks! I have my moments!

@VictoriaNotes There have been some.. and I have heard this from many others as well but yes, I have been here since early Oct and glad we have this and we now have groups where all of us feel comfortable being in.

@Captnron59 "'ear, 'ear!" thanks, bro!

Favourite humour is English hands down. Watch Black Adder if you haven't already done so.
"The life of Brain" is religion in a nutshell.

I am kind of an amalgamation of all of them, with a dirty mind and some kinky shit thrown in.

zorialoki Level 8 May 10, 2018

Lol...yes!

@Freespirit64 Happy to see you can giggle and say yes at the same time.

oh hell ya... how boring would life be without all of that.

@mistymoon77 No doubt, diversity is the smorgasbord that makes life worth living

I am so grateful for you and this group, thank you. The second one speaks to me.

Yes, this is the spot

Love it. Especially Gene Wilder.

Ikr...

Even though both christianity and islam have jewish roots, and I have been to synagogues, I don't consider myself jewish either.
