Because religion is laughable

Religious News - Antartica Penguin Cult

Penguins visit Mother Mary shrine picture

National Geographic's July edition included a surprise report of observed worship behaviour amongst a group of Antarctica penguins. The find, reported by Neils Godalm, leader of the 2015 Hurtigruten expedition, was of a group of twelve Gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua), who seemed to keep themselves apart from the main penguin population, and migrated daily to Wayside shrine of the Virgin Mary where they stood swaying silently in a semi-circle.

"It was remarkable," said Mr Godalm. "At first we laughed because it looked like they perhaps thought the Holy Mother was just a trapped penguin, but it soon became clear that the shrine had special religious meaning for them."

The Catholic Church has refused to comment on the find, or rumours of a "special" relationship with the penguin species.

Atheist Quote of the Day

"Religion is like having a classroom where the students have to show up every day, but there's no teacher. There are a bunch of books around and no one is even sure which on is the text book. Some students insist on one book; others argue just as hard for another. Then suddenly, on the last day, the teacher appears and says he's been watching everybody the whole time. He praises the ones who chose the right text book and sends them off to have cookies and milk.

And then he sets everyone else on fire."
