Owing to the fact that this topic appears to have died a slow and silent death, I thought I'd liven it up with an old joke (no, not Donald Trump - a FUNNY joke).
C.S. Lewis and Bertrand Russell are having a debate about the existence of God. It starts off all politeness and courtesy, but after a couple of hours, things start to get rather heated.
Lewis: You, Mr Russell, are like a blindfolded man in a dark room, looking for a black cat that isn't there!
Russell: What a coincidence, Mr Lewis. For I see you as a blindfolded man in a dark room, looking for a black cat that isn't there. The only difference is - you've found it!
Please feel free to add to your own favourites into the mix. But I must warn you - if you think having God on your side gives you an advantage - I've got Dave Allen!

Great idea, Craig. Great joke too even though it took me half an hour to figure it out. ;-)
Mine is from E=MO (Phillips) Squared. He has some funny jokes and he sounds perfect with the volume set at zero. Here goes.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bike.
Then I realized the lord doesn't work that way.
So I stole one and asked him to forgive me.

Q: How many atheists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Two. One to actually change the bulb, and the other to videotape the job so fundamentalists won't claim that god did it.

Q: How many buddhists does it take to change a lightbulb?

Why shouldn't American Skeptics be entitled to tax-exempt status? They're a non-prophet organisation.
(Feel free to substitute your local version of the group in the above - for example, British Skeptics, Australian Skeptics, Skeptics Canada, or, for our New Zealand friends - Kiwi Skiptics. Sorry, Steve!)

Ahem ... it's Skeptique Canada. We are proudly a bilingual nation and we want tax-exempt charitable status in both official languages which gives us the double the bang for our loonie. Vive le parti Quebecois and Gabriel Dumont. We trade woodpecker teeth on par.

Gloria, I'm sorry, but I don't understand what your country's sexual proclivities have to do with this discussion!

Whoops! That's because I forgot about our articles of prophetization. It's supposed to be woodpecker souls. They don't have the bang of the loonie.

Sceptics, Craig. We Brits have sceptic non-prophet organisations. No room for the KKK!

Terribly sorry to burst your bubble, Emma - but it seems that your countryfolk have capitulated in a similar fashion to ours, at least according to the British Association for Skeptical Enquiry, and the publishers of the British "The Skeptic magazine":
I'm as shattered as you at this assault upon our language - in fact, I think I might need to check myself into a wellness clinic to sort myself out!
