Hello! I'm looking for an atheist meme...

#1 Postby Manel » June 19th, 2017, 7:18 pm

...in which someone answered someone who said that defining yourself as an atheist is like defining yourself as a non bowling player. It was a similar argument to Neil deGrasse Tyson's one comparing defining yourself as an atheist with defining yourself as a non golf player. The answer was so good for me, that now I've decided that I'm a humanist and an atheist, without rejecting the atheist label.

I'm "in love" with this meme, and I've been looking so hard for it, but I can't find it! Can anyone please help me? Thanks a lot!

The answer was something like this one about the non golf player argument:

"I don’t play golf either. I don’t even care that my friends play golf, no matter how dumb the game is. Live and let live is what I say.
I just get kind of pissed off when golfers:
. demand that high school gym classes be converted into golf classes
. claim that only golfers should be allowed to hold public office
. tell me I’m not a good parent because I don’t send my kid to golf class
. take away people’s access to medical treatment for non-golf-related sports injuries
. indoctrinate children into a life of golf and tell them that all other sports are immoral and shouldn’t even be tried
. use it as a justification to launch wars against other golf leagues
. port the official golf rule book in public buildings and court houses
. shun people and disown family members who don’t like to play golf
. and for fuck’s sake, why don’t golf clubs have to pay tax?
The point is, maybe if golfers would shut the fuck up and stop trying to force their game on the rest of society, the minority of people who don’t play gold might not be so touchy about this stuff."
